I agree, the extension tines are on backwards. You also have the lift bar on backwards as well. You need to swap it end to end. The part that you are showing actually hooks to the tiller, and not the lift carriage.

Once you have set right it will do some serious tilling. I have a similar one on my Gravely with two extensions. One time I measured how deep it was digging, I had 9" of loose dirt.

That's the setting I am using. I thought it seems to drag more stalks along. Kind of piles up in the middle. Not enough that I am ready to switch to a shallower setting.

Now that the top sprocket is off I see that it is a clutch system. Who sells the friction disc for the tillers?
