Yesterday my father-in-law gave my wife and I a rear-tine tiller. He said the motor runs good, but there is something wrong with the transmission. He didn't know what it was, but the wheels are sliding away from the tiller body as if they are going to fall off. I noticed that as I rolled it down my driveway the wheels were pulling away from the body.
I don't know what brand the tiller is -- I can't find it labeled anywhere. It has an 8 hp Briggs & Stratton engine on it. I am sure that doesn't help much on this issue though.
Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? If so, is it worth fixing?
