Problem with my rotavator
« on: April 28, 2008, 20:48 »


sorry about the size of the pic.

I have lost two of these clips securing the blades to my Merry Tiller cadet.  They came off on Saturday while doing the business and getting the soil ready.  The problem is that I have been trying to purchase replacements but not had any luck.  This could be because I don't know what they are called.

If anybody knows what these clips are called or know where I can buy them, I can continue rotavating this weekend.

Thanks in advance
Alan

I note that Richard T' lists them on his Merry Tiller support website...
.....do note the 2 sizes...one for the mainstream M'T' and smaller ones for Cadet/Wizard.

:D I suspect that you lost them because they were put on the wrong way round, these pins use the d spring to hold them in, if you put them the wrong way round the spring opens and the pin falls out. just look at the rotation of the shaft in relation to the clip, you will see what i mean. They are available on ebay for about 13 squid for a set of four. The elderly guy on the next allotment next to mine lost one of his in the spring.I slipped home got out my metal detector and after a dozen false alarms found his pin, We are now best of friends, and when i have no greens to pick he always makes sure we never go hungry.regards Mick

Just to avoid confusion, the illustration is not an "R" pin, it is the normal steel pin with spring retainer which is used on farm tractor hydraulics. "R" pins are smaller one piece pins which could certainly not stand the swing of a reversible plough.

Apywell can you resize your picture please,
 I think thats what may causing the topic to flow over the edges,
 I'd do it but can't see the buttons as they have moved off the page .
Thanks any problems resizing the pic then just let me know I'll do it  :)

I've fixed it :) - old posts with large pictures need re-loading to automagically resize the displayed size.
