SOURCE: reel mower isn't engaging -- blades aren't rotating and cutting

My Scotts Elite has the same problem. I disassembled the wheel and there is a plastic sprocket that is worn down on the inside where it catches to engage the blades. I have been searching for a while and can't find a replacement part on the internet. Unfortunately i think the lawnmower is done unless you can find the replacement part. Looks like part number is PA66. You would need two, one for each wheel.

Hi! I had the same problem and had it repaired (guarantee-repair). They had to exchange the driving belt in the maschine and now it works great again.

SOURCE: My reel mower pushes great

I think with those things you might be cutting grass that is to long, try to raise the height setting if possible and try cutting again. Do this until you get going then adjust back down to desired height. Good Luck...

Hello, I just bought a 6 year old Masport Olympic 500. It hasn't run for over a year but it seems to be in excellent condition. But it simply will not start up. I have cleaned the plug, but it gave no...


Hi Mark , firstly do a full service on it ( all fluids ( engine oil /transmission fluid ) , drain and refill the gas tank with fresh gas , remove and clean/drainout the carb/s bowl . Recharge the battery
Most rideons have an operator prescence switch built into or under the seat therefore find the lockout for this or sit on it whilst starting it .
Hope this helps .

How to replace starter cord on a victa corvette 400 series mower,cord snapped,i put it back on....now it doesnt retract properly when trying to start it


Not sure what engine that machine uses but they are all similar, you need to prewind the reel before you slip the rope thru the hole, let the spring/reel pull the rope in.

Remove the wheels and check the gears inside.
It sounds like they are worn or sheared and need
renewing

Scotts 20" reel mower. Drive wheels will not turn blades any more. Blades turn freely, but will not be driven by wheels.


This is almost certainly a problem with worn pinion gears, which are unfortunately made of plastic. Replacements are just a couple of dollars, but you'll probably want to buy a few for each side in the event this happens again. The Scotts 20" reel mower is manufactured by Great States 1-800-618-7474. You can also find more information at www.reelmowersetc.com and the user manual for this particular mower can be viewed at http://www.reelmowersetc.com/2000-20.pdf.
