Question about Ariens 34 In. Zoom Series Riding Mower

1 Answer

Ariens sierra 1440G belt configuration

I recently pulled my cutting deck off to clean it. I went to put it all back together and I think I have put the belt on the wrong way because the blades wont spin anymore when they are engaged, the pully just spins becuase the belt is too loose.Is there somewhere I can get a diagram of how the belt is set out or is there something that I need to tighten in order to get friction on the belt/pulley

Hi, you may have more than one problem. There should be one belt from the mower deck going to the electric clutch pulley which is on the engine shaft. On the shaft there are two pulleys, one belt comes from the mower deck, and the other comes from the transaxle pulley. check to see if your belts are in the right areas.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

I have a ariens z 2048 when I engage the pto, it works but won't handle an even moderate load. Has new belt and blades would a bad battery cause this?


If your engine is running properly then battery has effect on the PTO.

It is more likely that your engine is running on one cylinder and that the extra load of deck is just too much for it.

Why won't the blades engage on my Ariens 911403


Chances are the deck drive belt has been knocked off one of the pulleys or the drive clutch won't engage properly. With the spark plug wire removed, rotate the blades by hand and make sure they both move together. This verifies the blade linking belt is OK. Now engage the blade operating control and feel for resistance as you rotate the blades. If you feel no change in resistance, remove the belt cover and reinstall the drive belt over the pulleys and tensioner/clutch mechanism.

I think that I over tightened the lock nut on one side (not using a tort wrench) after changing the mowing blades. I don't think it is cutting now. When I take the blades off from cutting, one blade...


there is a star shaped, or other, pattern on the bottom of the mandrel which fixes it into the blade. this has stripped so the blade is freewheeling on the mandrel. if you cannot remove the blade bolt, I think you are going to have to remove the deck and take it to a fabrication or machine shop to have them remove the blade from the mandrel. then you buy a new mandrel and a new blade, at a small engine repair shop, put it back together. take a picture of the top of the deck before you remove the deck belt so you know how to put it back on after you have the new mandrel bolted in. if it is old you may just want to replace all the mandrels while you are at it. they are less than 50 bucks each.

1046 cub done 120hrs 12mths old replaced all pullies bearing use 5 belts in 12mths belts keep comeing off is this a problem with this modle 2009


hi,
on some cubs there are two holes for the spring loaded pulley adjustment arm. take the deck back off and look at the spring loaded pulley arm mechanism, if theres two holes , take the bolt out that holds the adjustment arm down and move it to the other hole. theres two holes for the spring too, try the other hole, make sure your spring isnt upside down. putting the spring back on is difficult. connect it to the front first then come around the back with a spare piece of rope, put it on the spring and pull on the rope to get the spring back on the mower deck. use eye protection and be careful.

Cant find the PTO deck belt for a Ariens Sport Zoom Model 915031-1232. Ita a zero turn mower. The manual calls for belt # 07242700 cant find it anywhere! Help.....


I own this model as well. The manufacturer issued a "cutting improvement kit" for this model number. The belt number has changed as well. The number you now need is # 07242200

I am in the process of ordering one for mine right now. Good luck!
