Belts wont move

I have a Troy Bilt Super Bronco model 6605 riding lawn mower. When I move the lever to engage the blades, it seems like the pulley's are not moving right because I get a burning smell right on the front main pulley and it seems like the belts are not moving and since they cannot move they burn. Why is this and what can I do?

I would check to make sure that that the belt isn't pinched somewhere around the pulleys. See if they are movable with mower disengaged and off. If they are hard to move, they most likely have pressure keeping them from moving.
They would create a burning smell even though they are not moving. The main pulley while engaged does rotate and if the belt is touching but not moving, it will rub enough to make the odor.

SOURCE: Troy Bilt ride-on mower will not move in either fwd or reverse

Is the parking brake on? Or if it's a hydrostatic (automatic) there is a release lever to push the unit around when it isn't running. Most of those releases are on the back of the machine, and you just push it in for drive and pull it out to push.

SOURCE: MTD Lawn Tractor problem

The front belt should be a 954-0280A, rear 954-0370. When you go to higher gears, the front belt should be getting tighter as the vari-speed pulley is moving further back. Remove the shift plate, put the transmission in neutral. Start the engine, put speed selector in highest gear and slowly let out on the clutch. You should be able to see what the problem is. It will do everything the same as if were in gear, except move. Make sure you have the correct belts.

SOURCE: my belt wnat stay on my 42 inch cut troy bilt

Usually, it's because the belt's worn out. Over a period of time, they stretch and wear against the pullys. I recently replaced one after it came off several times. Try as I might, I couldn't see anything wrong with the belt. I changed it anyway, and it's run fine ever since!!
Good luck! --W/D--

SOURCE: wont free roll

On some tillers you have to pull the pin that holds the wheel on, move the wheel in and reinstall the pin to get them to freewheel. You may have to use some penetrating oil like i.e. PB blaster or DeepCreep to get the wheel to move on the shaft. Be patience there may be plenty of rust to break the hold. But when you get them free, clean up the shaft and wheels and put some grease on them. This will make it move more freely next time.

I have Troy Hydrostatic 46" when I attempt to


If you lower the blade deck and get down near the mower, you can see the blades belt on top of the deck. If it is intact, with the engine off, have someone try to engage the blades. A tensioner should move into place to tighten the blades. If it is not, follow the engagement lever to under the dash to see if there is a cable broken or a rod detached.

Post back.
