SOURCE: removing tractor deck to change belt and blades?

if i am thinking of the right model you may be able to get away with first taking off the blade, then to remove the deck should be a number of bolts under the chassis and on top of the deck where it meets the frame... you can get your parts here if your having trouble finding them

SOURCE: The newly purchased deck belt turning the blades is extremely loose

If idler is in tact and spring attached, it is likely that the belt isn't routed properly. If you try to route the rear-most portion of the belt around the idler, it will be loose. You must route the front-most portion of the belt around the center blade pully and then around the idler. Just Google "MTD 46 inch deck diagram" and you will go to a Parts Tree site with the proper diagram showing routing.

SOURCE: MTD Lawn Tractor: Constantly shredding deck belt...

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

Where is the safety switch to engage the blade


Your lawn tractor will have a lever that raises and lowers the mower deck which houses the two cutting blades. By lowering your mower deck to the desired cutting height, the blades should automatically engage. By raising the deck back to it's highest position, the blades will automatically disengage. Should be simple enough. You can consult your mower manual. If you don't have one, you can easily find it online using the make, model and year of the lawn tractor.

My Craftsman Lawn Tractor is making a whining sound and a burning odor when I have the cutting deck engaged. It stops as soon as I dis-engage the blades.


it sounds like the deck and or the belt needs to be adjusted and aligned. 1st make sure mower is OFF and blades are disengaged. check to make sure the deck/blades are free of harden grass, twigs, branches, and that they are free moving. 2nd make sure belt is in its correct path. 3rd make sure the deck can be lowered and raised without obstructions 4th make sure no parts have been bent and the pulleys are parallel to the deck and the deck is not cracked or broken by the blades hitting something hard and the deck being damaged. 5th the belt adjustment needs to be tight but not over tightened (see a service dealer).
hope this has been helpful. contact me if you need further help.
Thank you.

My MTD 14hp lawn tractor (38", 6 speed) shuts of


You have a short somewhere . A cut or stripped wire that , at the time of lowering your deck, touches the body. It's like turning off your key. Look around under your deck and you will find what I'm talking about. Fix wire and tie up to prevent future problems. GOOD LUCK.

My deck cuts shoter on the rt,ie uneven


Check your tire pressures:
10 psi. for rear tires.
14 psi. for the front.

Note that according to MTD:
Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting. During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.

No,You need to park on a level area and lower the deck to it's lowest setting and adjust the deck with the large butterfly nuts on each side,just under the foot pan,just loosen and let the adjusters fall into place,Tighten back up and it should be set.You may need to do this more than once.
