Merry Tiller Cadet questions
« on: February 04, 2007, 22:25 »
Hi all

I have just got myself a Merry Tiller Cadet rotavator (see pic).  Does anyone know where I could get a user guide or similar to help me with servicing?  I have done some searching on the internet, but there is not much about.  I have never owned anything like this before, so help and advice would be useful.    

Has anyone else got this particular make?  

What fuel will it use?

is it the 4 stroke model or the 2 stroke ? if it is 4 stroke you need lead replacment fuel. 2 stroke is lead replacment fuel  with 2 stroke oil mixed in

Not sure if it's 4 or 2 stroke as I haven't picked it up yet.  Either way its lead replacement fuel then... Where would I get that from :?:

its a four stroke briggs and stratton.
very clean looking for its age.
briggs engines will all run on unleaded, as they all have hardened valve seats. if it hasn`t been run on it before, you may need to decoke it first, its not a hard job.
as for servicing, this is the only site you need for info, lots of folk who own or service these on here!

I have one the same but called a wizard, and its green instead of red. But its a super little machine. its lite and easy to put in the car ect. I made a second set of narrow diggers as the originals are one piece and always at 24". I always put unleaded in it and it goes fine. Check that the chain case has oil before starting on the allotment. Good Luck
always have a target
and an objective.

Cheers gwiz.  This is comforting reading.  I'm picking it up week on Tuesday.  I will sure be asking the owner of fuel type, but was just wondering beforehand.  Never used one before and can't wait to have a go on the Lottie   :D

Cheers for this advice.  Is there an easy way to check the case has oil.  I take it that there is a chain within.  Should it just be a well oiled chain or like an oil sump and have an oil level?

theres no dip stick as such on the chain case but it takes a pint of oil to fill it.
feed the soil not the plants
organicish
you learn gardening by making mistakes
