    Default Help with Troybilt rear tine roto tiller

    If this is in wrong forum I apologize, please delete.

    I recently acquired a used Troy Bilt Horse Model rear tine roto tiller.

    The previous owner unhooked the Forward Safety Levers on handle bars, I see the wire but dont know where it needs to go. I have looked at wiring diagrams etc and still not sure. Anyone know?

    So your saying the safety levers are electrically controlled ? I have a older pony model and it is all mechanical linkage. What year is your tiller ?

    That wiring went to the safety switch on the handle bars for reverse safety, none of the older models had this until the lawyers got involved. If it works ok with that disconnected have at it.
