Without the model number, I couldn't tell you what belt goes on the ground drive. That 174883 is a 5/8 x 97" and is your deck drive belt. Your ground drive belt may just need replacing. They will wear thin and loosen up between the pulleys and cause the problems you're having. The old belt may still have the numbers on it.

SOURCE: Deck Belt keeps coming off

I assume you mean the engine pulley by "front pulley"? Is the belt guide still in place? It bolts to the side of the frame and runs out to the engine pulley to hold the belt on when it's disengaged. Sound like your's may be missing/broken off

check for a broken belt tension er or maybe grass clippings under belt area, check for a broken or loose pulley bearing, even a bent shaft on the deck.

How to change pto belt on club cadet 1046


To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1046 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ) You need a 5/8" socket to get the bolt out of the PTO pulley assy.(electric clutch). If you don't have an impact wrench take a spark plug out and push rope into the hole. This will bind the cylinder and keep the drive shaft from turning. Remove rope and replace plug when finished. Battery and/or spark plug wires should be removed for this process for safety.
The PTO may be stuck on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Lower engine pully on drive shaft, below pully "keys". It may be difficult to remove. Spray with "PB Blaster" or similar bolt loosener spray. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, make a diagram to help.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO pulley is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Torque bolt to 38-50 ft. lbs. using the rope meathod as described before. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again

2004 gx335 48c mower deck primary pto belt has broken twice new double pulley on rear nothing rubbing no noise


Is the belt overly tight? My mower was doing that to, turned out the belt called for was 1" longer then the belts i was buying for it, making the belt really tight and it kept over heating from rubbing and failing. I would run it for a while then shut everything off and see if the belt is hot, also check that the bearing are not hot, could be friction somewhere causing the belt to heat up and fail.

Snapper NXT236 keeps twisting and breaking mower deck belts


check for failing cutter shaft bearings , misalignment of pulleys , incorrect belt tension, wrong section belts in use
breaking belts is an indication of the belt going around a pulley and flexing against the belt fabric structure ( bending backwards as opposed to running properly in the groove) which indicates that the tension pulley is on the wrong position on the belt

Blades won't engage on my zero turn 50" cut husqvarna (approx2011) I found a 7" spring on the ground and don't know where it goes back on. Can u help


Looking underneath the mower on top of the deck there should be a flat metal arm with a flat faced pulley on the end. This pulley pushes against the belt that drives the mower deck . The spring should be hooked on that arm and pulled tight over to a place on the deck and this is what keeps the belt tight enough to turn the blades when you engage the pto switch. My recommendations to put this back on is to remove the belt pulley cover on the deck right side roll the belt off at that pulley giving you a bunch of slack so you can hook up the spring and put the belt in the right position on everything else then go back to the deck right hand pulley start putting the belt back on that pulley and when it is to tight to get it all the way on reach under the deck and use the blade as leverage to finish turning the pulley and walk that belt on the rest of the way ,it will not hurt a thing, all you are doing is pulling that 7 inch spring over like it was intended to be, then replace the cover on the deck spindle.

I replaced my PTO drive belt (engine to blades, part #754-0497) without any trouble.


Check all idler pulley bearings, double pulley bearings and the spindles bearings. If any feel rough hand turning replace them. Also make the spindle belt is correctly routed. Edited adding the word "belt"

The 60.5" belt is the correct for the G deck that uses the 66.5" spindle deck belt.

I need a schematic for installing a cub cadet LT1050 drive belt. The old belt broke and I'm just not sure how to replace it. It appears you need to remove the clutch for the mower blade firat.


To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1045 or LT 1050 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ), use an impact wrench (you need the speed of the impact wrench because the engine will turn) and a 5/8" socket and reverse the bolt out of the PTO.

The PTO may be sized on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. AT this point remove the 4 engine mount bolts from underneath (1/2" I believe). You will need to remove the left steering nut and arm to have access to the 4th bolt. Do not remove or replace engine mount bolts with impact wrench or bolts may break. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Place pry bar under engine to slightly lift engine and move aft to expose belt from pulley and remove from pulley. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, draw a map if needed.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Carefully push engine back into place and exhaust pipes into forward muffler will take some patience. Bolt engine back on being careful not to over tighten bolts. Place steering arm and nut back in place. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again. Give yourself an hour for this one.

I have a Sears Garden Tractor with a 48" mower deck. By working in long, thick grass I broke the mower belt -- not the one that transmits power from the engine, but the belt that sits in a pulley on...


I believe that tensioner pully has to be loosend up and moved.
Here are the instructions for this.
  • Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.

  • 2

    Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.

  • 3

    Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.

  • 4

    Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.

  • 5

    Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.

  • 6

    Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.

  • 7

    Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.

  • 8

    Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.

  • 9

    Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.

    I need a belt diagram for a ranch king king plus also i need to know the size for the main drive belt


    Ranch King is a brand name of the manufacturer MTD.

    Product manuals with part blow-up diagrams are available from MTD's web site,
    http://www.mtdproducts.com/
    Models are identified from the model number printed on a label under the mower seat.
    The PTO and deck drive belts are shown on one diagram and the transmission drive belt is shown on another. The Form number on my printed Operator's Manual is 770-10526A (22HP, 46in cut) for Hydrostatic 817/818 models.

    Parts can be ordered directly from MTD or other distributors on the web.

    It is my experience that original brand name MTD belts work best.

    The 22HP, 46" mower deck Ranch King Pro has 3 belts:

    The drive belt which runs from the engine pulley back to the hydro drive unit to provide over-the-ground propulsion is part #754-0349.

    A mower has either an electric PTO or a manual PTO, not both.

    The electric PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs around the electric clutch on the engine shaft (activated by electric switch, not the mechanical hand lever that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0476 for the 46" deck.

    The manual PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs off the pulley on the engine shaft (activated the mechanical hand lever to the left of the steering wheel that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0228 for the 46" deck.

    The deck belt that goes around the 3 blade spindle assemblies on the mower deck, to drive the grass cutting blades is p/n 754-0349

    In my experience, the PTO belt lasts about half a season, the other belts break about every other season when mowing 4 acres weekly.
