Question about Garden
Hello- Just received a MTD lawn mower/tractor 42 inch with the bagger. Just put a new battery in and cranks runs good. When i go to engage the blade, the front fills with smoke and smells like burning rubber/makes a winney noise, and then i disengage...any ideas, belts are on, seem a bit loose, but im not sure they should be ultra tight
Have you physically moved each blade by hand (with the machine shut-off),spark plug disconnected to see if both or all of the cutting blades move freely if there is any binding you probably have a bad blade spindle bearing . If those move o.k. then you're going to want to check the pulleys on top of the deck, one of these which do not go to the blades may possibly have a bad bearing and is not moving freely causing the belt to be burning up.

The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?
