SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 briggs/str 42''won't cut

It sounds to me like a very loose belt or very worn out belt and also an adjustment problem.

SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the

craftsman decks have a positive stop adjustment for the decks. A spring atached to the blade ingadgement arm pulls the tension pully into position if the cable is rusted inside the sleeve it wont put enough pull on the ingadgment pully and thus the blades dont spin full force the belts on the mowers have no adjustments only the pully . second thing is you may want to drop the deck and clean around that pully by scraping any rust off the surface under the pullys slide good luck

SOURCE: my john deere lt 133 mower with a double blade

This model mulching deck uses a flat/ribbed serpentine belt that is set at very high tension.When belt breaks under the cover only one blade will turn due to IT being driven from PTO clutch as the other blade being turned from serpentine belt.This deck was Deere's first and last shot at making a true mulching deck and only made it a couple years.When you buy the VERY expensive belt it will come with detailed instructions on how to install it.Goog luck.

SOURCE: john deere gt 235 electric blade engagment but

One of two possible causes;either the PTO switch is defective or the switch for the reverse peddle is out of adjustment .The only other thing i have seen cause the PTO to shut down is a lack of battery power due to the machine not charging.

Does the John Deere LX172 mower have an electric clutch and if so how do I operate it. I can't get my tractor to move.


Hi Bill, you electric clutch only engages your pto. The clutch for the Transmission just releases tension on an idler for the drive belt. Do you still have spring resistance on the clutch pedal?

My 318 John Deere mower blades would not turnoff. The switch would not move. Even when I got off the seat the mower blades continued. I turned the motor off and now it won't start. Any idea?


Faulty attachmentment switch, replace it as it is sending a signal that it is engaged to your starter circuit, that is why it wont start.
It is also faulty as it wont engage the attachment (mower cutting deck)

I just bought an old John Deere 68 riding mower but it does not cut grass even though the blade spins when engaged. I made sure the blade was on correctly but it still doesn't cut. I noticed the pulley...


Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?
