If gardening is something you do often it is a huge inconvenience to have your tiller not working properly. I researched your question and was able to find a couple links that will provide information regarding the gears being stuck on your tiller. I attached the links below. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. If the tines on the tiller move freely, I recommend checking the shear bolts first. The shear bolts are made to break if the tines hit a large rock or like item. To check the shear bolts turn the tines while watching the tine shaft. If the tine shaft is turning with the tines, the problem is in the transmission. The parts for the transmission are available but it is a difficult repair. We recommend replacing the whole transmission.

We're sorry. No parts are currently available for this component.
