How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The Model number is eleven characters long and is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label. Characters can include numbers, letters or hyphens.
The engine number is found on the body of the car`s engine. Car manufacturers ensure that the number is clearly visible. It is imprinted on a metal sticker and placed in such a way that it is easy to see when you open the hood.
The model and serial number ID tag of an MTD tiller is located on top of the tine hood.
The label on rear-discharge, bag-type, walk-behind mowers is normally on the door covering the rear-discharge opening. The label on riding mowers is underneath the seat.
Along with Cub Cadet, Troy-Bilt, Columbia and Remington, the MTD family of brands includes MTD®, MTD Gold®, MTD Pro®, Yard-Man®, Yard Machines® and Bolens®.
MTD`s current (1997 and later) model and serial numbers are generally 11 characters in length. A character could be a number, dash or a letter. If 0 represented all numbers and/or dashes and X represented all letters, the model and serial numbers should appear as follows: 00XX000X000.
MTD tillers have a small footprint so they can fit in tight places, but powerful enough to break through tough top soil. MTD tillers quickly ground up roots, rocks and any other debris hiding in your soil, so you can start planting in your garden and flower beds.
Engines used in lawn mower applications usually have the model numbers stamped directly into the blower housing, muffler heat shield, or a few inches above the spark plug, as well as the fuel tank and the base of the engine block. Depending on the style of engine shroud used, the engine code numbers may be covered.
The engine number is a six digit number that follows a three digit engine code. You may notice that the engine number includes three digits followed by six more digits. The first three digits are your vehicle`s engine code and the last six digits are your vehicle`s engine number.
Engine numbers were originally created as a serial number. Before the modern era, it was common for cars to need replacement engines, or rebuilt engines. It is an exhaustive process to update a vehicle`s engine number with the relevant roads and traffic authorities, but it is possible.
The serial number can help determine the engine model and also help determine the correct service parts and changes based on serial number breaks. Engine Serial Number Rule (7 digits) Starting June 1, 2012 the engine serial number will have 7 digits (currently 6 digits) and will be completely unique.
The engine will have a alphanumeric casting number on the passenger side (right side) of the block, under the heads. The first letter of the code identifies the decade (C=1960s, D=1970s, E=1980s), the second digit in the code identifies the specific year.
Time for the Tiller

There, in 1912, a man named Arthur Clifford Howard attached a disc-bladed cultivator to his father`s tractor and used the tractor`s steam engine to power it. The new machine turned the soil more effectively but didn`t pack the ground after passing over it, the way that traditional plows did.

MTD is headquartered in Valley City, Ohio, and has engineering, manufacturing, distribution, and sales offices in more than 20 countries.
The model number will most likely appear on either a paper sticker or a metal plate in an easy-to find place.
A serial number (SN) is a number assigned to each individual product in order to distinguish that product from all others. The serial number is sometimes used only for warranty control and sometimes used for both warranty control and for version control.
The 42-inch Yard Machines Riding Mower makes it easy for you to get yard work done. This hardworking machine features a Briggs & Stratton 17.5HP engine as well as a seven-speed shift-on-the-go transmission to give you the power to drive the riding mower up small hills and ridges.
The original Lawn-Boy was manufactured by the Evinrude Company and became the first one-handed reel power mower introduced to the American public. 1935: Briggs and Evinrude purchased Johnson Motor Wheel Company from a New York stock brokerage firm.
Model and serial numbers are used to identify a specific product. The model number differentiates between models of devices—for example, iPhone® 13 and iPhone X. Many devices can share a model number, which means they`re the same model. But every device has its own unique serial number, sometimes abbreviated as S/N.

The Model, Type and Code numbers, stamped directly into the engine, are used to identify our engines. Engines used in lawn mower applications usually have the model numbers stamped directly into the blower housing, muffler heat shield, or a few inches above the spark plug.
The model number will be 11-12 characters long and can be found in one of many locations, including: by the starter, on the cylinder shield, on the metal shield, on the valve cover, above the spark plug, in front of the engine, above the muffler, or on the fuel tank.

Engine runs fine on 2-cycle Mantis tiller, but tines won’t turn when they touch ground. They turn when I start engine and when I “walk” the machine around, but if I try to till, they stop turning and engine sounds muffled. Engine sounds full power beforehand.
ANSWER : Your problem is a common one on Mantis tillers. The engine sounds like it is not breathing properly. I have fixed dozens of these problems and it is almost always the spark arrestor clogged up. The spark arrestor is found inside a small housing on the muffler (easy to fix). There are 3 screws that need to be removed to get the muffler cover off, then you will see a small housing a little over an inch long with another 3 screws…remove them and you will see a small screen that is probably clogged. Clean it and the housing with a solvent (I usually use carb cleaner) then re-install the arrestor and reassemble the muffler cover. This will fix your problem about 80% of the time.

If that is not the problem you may need to fix the carburetor (take my advice and just buy a new one…not much more expensive than the repair kit and a lot simpler.
