Question about Husqvarna Garden
Hello, I havehad a Husqvarna GTH2654 for years and mostly had no issues. last year, the belt came off because the idler pulley bracket (welded onto the deck) broke. I had it welded back, no problem. This year, it broke off again. Had it welded again. After cutting the grass once, the Grade 5 bolt on the same idler broke in half and the belt came off again. Seems like the force being applied to that idler is too much. Any suggestions on where to look?
My only suggestion is to check the belt for length, make sure it is not too long and "slapping" while running.

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.
