SOURCE: hi have a Toro wheelhorse 212-6. new to us. wont cut.

Yes, there is a switch on the dash. It operates an electric PTO or clutch for the mower blades. That is how most lawn tractors work. Of course , yours could be different, but if it is, It still has a clutch somewhere and a lever to engage the blades. Most of the electric ones are controlled by safety switches, One being in the seat, if you are not in the seat, it will not connect, if you get out of the seat with it running, the engine will cut off. Sometimes one is on the mowing deck, it will not connect if the deck is up. If you cannot get the PTO to work, it could be shot. (Rare) You can hear it go when it starts, check it out, hope this helps.

Hello Keith, It sounds to me that the drive belt needs to be tightened. There are two bolts between the engine and the blade. Loosen those bolts, tighten the belt and tighten the bolts.

Why don't the blades engage?


Blades Engage via a pully system. Once you move the lever to engage the blades, the belt tightens and the blades engage. It is possible that your belt is broken or has gone out of track with the pulleys. If you know the belt is ok, then it is probably a bearing in one of the blade mounts.

How do you change the blade on a Husqvarna partner K750 concrete saw?


The blade bolt is 13mm,on the opposite side there is a hole in the belt guard to insert a 6mm pin to lock the front pulley, once locked undo the blade bolt counter clockwise, once removed, remove the outer clamping flange, you can then remove the blade, the standard arbour is 20mm, this can be changed if you wish to a 25.4mm, or a 22mm, depending on the arbour size of the blade you wish to fit, the arbour just pulls off the shaft with a suitable puller. Refit the the blade and outer flange, tighten the bolt securley.

I need a diagram for the timing belt on my castel garden 20/122


pauly46_0.gifpauly46_1.gif hi there winger1886

pauly46 here


with 20/122 the blade timming must with one blade vertical and one blade horizontal
doesnt matter which one but as long as there is 90 degrees between blade as the rotate
in the picture the r/h blade rotates anticlockwise and the l/h blade rotates clockwise

the picture for belt / blade timming is straight forward - loosen tensioner rod and back it off completely , loosen 2 x bolts under the two toothed pulleys and remove the 2 belt guide/ stoppers from the l/h side - place both blades in the rqd position ( you may need someone to hold other blade in rqd position - fit the belt onto pulleys as in the diagram- continually check while fitting that timming has not moved from where you placed them ( they have to be 90 degrees from each other ) and then tighten the tensioner rod to hold position - rotate by hand recheck timming - if good loosly fit guide the 2 guide stoppers to l/h side and place 3.5 kg of tension at the middle point of the longest run of timmed belt ( belt should only deflect 10 mm with 3.5 kg of tension )
once tensioned tighten the 2 bolts under the toothed pulleys and tighten loc nut on adjuster
tighten the 2 stopper / guide nuts

in the picture the left hand blade is a l/h thread undo it right and tighten it left

the blade on the right is a normal thread left loose - righty -tighty

cheers hope it helps

BLADE DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT


Well, most riding mowers have a "pully idler", meaning once you have the belt on there (and it is the RIGHT size), the idler automatically gives the belt tension when you engage it (in fact, the idler pully is what IS engaged when you engage the belly mower).

Couple things to check (super simple):

The Belt. Look to see if she is wore smooth out.
Sometimes....they WILL stretch on you, instead of busting/coming apart, and give you noise (when she is engaged, but wore out enough to flop around a little)

The Deck Blade Bearings. Straight away, that is what it sounds like, or bent blades.

Check your Blade Bearings (super simple):
1. Pick up your deck to the highest high setting (mower off, just sitting).
2. Reach under, and grab your mower blade (do this for both sides), and TILT your blade UP (meaning, don't LIFT the blade straight up).
Seriously, jiggle it at a TILT. If you feel some slack in the bearing, the bearing IS shot. Straight up and down is most of the time OK, IF it is VERY little play on your blade bearings. As you do it, look at your belt pulley directly on top, if you see that pully bobbing....

However, if you grab one side of the blade only, then tilt the blade up, and she moves.....
Bearings need replaced, both the upper AND lower bearings PER blade.

They are not hard to replace, and not expensive either! (Though unfortunately, most are "sealed" junk nowadays!)

Bad Bearings show up (make themselves known) in only a few ways: Tons of Noise (grinding, squealing) & Vibration.

Go check them thar Bearings!
