Troy Bilt self propelled mower

This mower wont keep a belt on it. At 15 dollars a belt this is getting expensive. I just put a new one on it and 2 seconds later its cut in half. What gives?

Please don't be offended but are you sure you are putting it on the right way. A lot of the mowers out today have guards that prevent the belt from coming off the pulleys if there is a foreign object caught up when they are being used. These guards are actually post that are fastened to the chassis of the mower. Troy built is a top name mower so I'm sure their design is reliable. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Does the tension on the belt seem adequate? Is there a tension adjustment. (an idler pulley with an adjustment)?

Hope this helps Good Luck Loring Please give me a rating Thks

Own a Troy Bilt self-propelled model #12A-466-M011 for a year now. It worked great when first got it. Now it will not clear the grass underneath so cuts off every 15 feet and have to manually clear grass...


I had the same problem with my Troy-Bilt self propelled lawn mower. You have to use the grass catcher if your grass is high. Also, I mowed wet grass and it made my belt slip off the pulley and created a new problem, somowing wet grass is definitely not a good idea.

Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine


You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

Troy bilt mower self propelled 21". Belt has come off


Take the three screws out of the belt cover. One screw in behind each back wheel. The other is under the mower near the shaft to blade. Remove the tension spring off the transmission. Then remove blade and the cover comes off. You then can put the belt back on. Sounds like fun don't it!

How do i replace a drive belt on a troy bilt self propelled lawn


You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.
