Why does my tiller keep dying?
Because your engine needs more fuel to run at full throttle than to idle, if not enough fuel is in the engine it may cause your cultivator to idle normally, but then die when you run it at full throttle. Like air filters, fuel filters can sometimes be cleaned and the problem will go away.
