SOURCE: Drive belt comes off the rear pulley.

Hi, this is a easy solution. on your drive pulley, there should be three belt keepers to keep the belt from coming off. ( belt keeper is a 1/4" dia. rod that goes over the pulley)

SOURCE: LTX 1000 CRAFTSMAN /42 IN. DECK BELT LODGED ABOVE

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: Mower Belt Won't Engage

The fact is that belts don't stretch. They wear down on the sides, causing them to ride deeper in the pulleys and they APPEAR to be longer. Check belt "width" to see if it is less than one half inch. Most craftsman riders use half-inch (AKA: "A section") belts.

What attachments can I use for a manual pto lawn tractor?


it would depend on the model/size of the machine i have seen that the snow blower attachments don't work very well on any rider i don't think sears had a tiller for anything modern and what you would pay for most any attachment you can get a stand alone version cheaper if you want a work tractor get a wheel horse a old cub or deere tractor not a riding mower that is to weak to handle the work out

My craftsman tractor wont pull itself up a hill. Runs fine but just comes to a stop when trying to go up a hill. Maby the ground drive belt is slipping????


Sounds like your drive belt is slipping alright. Need to tighten your clutch rod. One end of rod adjust. Have someone help you, move the clutch petal and your helper watch and see rod moves.

Craftsman mower keeps breaking primary mower belt


Have you check the tensioners? The idler pulleys that are on the arms with springs on them. My reasoning is, if the arms are rusted, or stuck for some reason and not moving freely then the springs can't pull the belt tight. If that's the case, I could see where the belt could be slipping more than it needs to and prematurely wearing out. Just something to check. Good luck.

Tractor belt slips so blade doesn't cut


There is an electrical clutch that drives the belts. This clutch may be worn. Some will have adjustments that will allow it to tighten them up and not slip. Now when your tractor is running and you turn on your blades there is power sent to this clutch, it is mounted on the engine shaft and has flexible metal plate that is pulled into a pulley buy an electro magnet this plate is worn or could be full of grass/dirt. You need a good strong light, with the tractor OFF, get under and look at this clutch, look for grass/dirt or if the metal has changed colors meaning it has gotten very hot. If it has gotten very hot it is time for a new clutch... Sorry if this is the case. Good hunting.

Tillers rotate put in gear wont move was moving just stopped is their a belt or chain in gear box or transmisson


Hi pat,

Yes, there are two chains in the tranny. If the wheels spin freely but don't engage, the smaller chain is broken.

If the wheels don't move, in gear or not, the smaller chain is broken and wrapped around the gears.

It's a bit of a chore to get to....
