SOURCE: how to adjust belt tension 42" raftsman lawn tractor cutting deck

Note: This is about a different mower, but it might be similar enough to yours.  If not, please disregard.  Thanks!

I had a similar issue with our mower, a 2006 Troy-Bilt Pony model 13AN77TG766 (17.5 HP, 42 inch deck): when I pushed the handle down to engage the blades, it took a good ten seconds or so to start the blades turning; even then, they didn't have enough power to cut the grass.  And on any height setting lower than 5, they wouldn't turn at all.

The cause was on page 19 of the manual <URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf>: Figure 17 shows the "PTO" cable attaching to a hole on the edge of the deck idler bracket, but it was shipped from the factory attached to a hole in the middle of the deck idler bracket, about 3 cm (1 in.) closer to the front end of the machine.  I reattached the cable to the original hole, and the belt is now good and tight; the blades engage as soon as I push the handle down.

Now, today, I'm having problems with the belt popping off the right-hand idler (hopefully just needs the deck stabiliser rod adjusting).

Always remember to remove the spark plug wire before you go near the blades; and watch for hot, sharp, and/or pinching surfaces.

Good luck!

Cutting blades not engaging when lever is pushed to engage.


First make sure that you have the right belt. If you have the right belt for your model then you have laced it wrong on the wheels. You will have to get a diagram of your belt path and redo it.

One of the blades will not cut in heavy grass and the tension on the pulley seems more slack than the blade that will cut


Sounds as if the deck belt is stretched. Replace the belt and make sure it is routed correctly. When the belt is off of the unit, make sure each blade assembly rotates without resistance. One of the mandrel assemblies could be seized.

The cutting deck is so unstable & the belt drive


For the deck,they do move it allows them to cut evenly on uneven surfaces.Lower the deck and inspect everything on top of the deck.These mowers have several arms to hold it in place.Make sure none are disconnected,or have broken clips.Make sure to wiggle each of the arms,some times they can fall in a position so that it looks like that is where it belongs.


As for the drive belt.Just keep the mower out of the weather as best as you can.Feel the pulleys for burs,and make sure there is no debris hanging that may be scrapping the belt.

Install belt on toro mower model 70041


For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
  1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
  2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
  3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
  4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
  5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

Useful diagrams for removing the cutting deck, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14794

For deck belt diagrams, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14796

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

John Deere Lt 166 ride on mower


jd lt 166 has 5 different decks
3 of which have the same belt routing
1st the belt needs to be adjusted correctly to stop it from "slacking off"
then on most decks the belt is routed in between the 2 small idler pulleys and then to the engine pulley
so let me know the deck i.e. 36", 42 ", 46", 48"
different belt sizes also

Need to fit belt that turns blades on husqvarna lt 120 can you help.


You will have to remove the cutting deck from under the ride on to have better access to the belt
If you take a picture of the cutting deck once it is removed it will assist you in putting it back together.
To remove the cutting head belt from the engine bottom pulley you must push the foot pedal down and lock it in place to take the pressure off the belt to remove it from the pulley.
There is most probably a rod that hangs down close to the side of the pulley which is there to stop the belt from coming off when the pressure has been taken off the belt, you have to loosen the rod retaining bolt and move it away from the side of the pulley to get the room to remove the belt, there will be a cable that adjusts the deck cutting height which has to be removed from the cutting deck to be able to remove the deck, there should only be 3 anchor points that hold the deck under the mower, 2 on the sides and a steel rod throught the front with spring clips on them for quick removal.
when the deck is out you will see t hat both the belt pulleys on the deck have plastic guards on them which have to be removed to be able to get the belt off the pulleys.
Replace the belt and install all the parts in the reverse order that you removed them in.
Is a reasonably large job for a person who has never done it before but it is a job that anyone can do if they just take their time and also a few pics before removing just for a reference
Hope this helps
