SOURCE: replace blades on a john deere L120 mower deck

First make sure you have the tools, metric that is. The deck must be removed and turned over. To do this you must put the deck in the lowest position. Using a 15mm socket pull the belt tension spring pulley forward to detach from clutch. Next remove retaining pins located at the five deck brackets. This will allow the arms to slide off and the deck can be dragged out from under the mower. Turn deck over. Use a 18 inch 2x4 to block blades while removing the two 15mm bolts. The bolt heads will need to be cleaned so the socket can seat on bolt head. I use my torque wrench to get more leverage and i can use it to reset blade bolts to 64 ft lbs. While blades are of it is a god time to thoroughly clean underside of deck.

SOURCE: john deere 111 mower deck. Lift is in stuck in highest position

Looked up detailed isometric diagram w/ parts denoted on John Deere website. FixYa website was a litele misleading. I did not realize that accessing a question posted "for free" would cost me something to get the answer. It's kind of like askin a neighbor as a neighbor to give you a hand and then he sends a bill.
Thanks but no thanks

Craftsman Model Number: 917.377151 motor shuts down when blades engaged


The engaging of the mowdeck is cause an excessive demand of your engine. From that, we can assume your problem is in the deck. Since the power drive is all about belts and it threw the belts, from your information I can only deduce that either an object (stick-wood-rock) has wedge into a position that has stopped rotation of the blades. Also, each blade has a pulley/spindle. These have bearings which must be free to rotate.
A bearing failure or seizing can also cause the problem you report.

Follow safety rules in your manual to insure the engine cannot start. Attempt to rotate each blade to check for free rotation. If the do not you most likely will need to remove the mower deck and check further. An obstruction or seized spindle should be easy to determine and sit repair is easily possible.

Why does it bog down in grass maybe 6 " high?


The likely cause of this is that the grass is too high for your mowers deck. You should try just mowing about 1/3 of the blade at a time (if you can) until you reach your desired length, so if you grass is 6" high, only take off about 2" at first to reduce the stress on your mower. Set your mower deck to it's highest setting and give it a shot.

Also, be sure that the blades are sharp, and if you don't have mulching blades, you should get some! Grass this high will leave long clippings on the lawn which can suffocate the grass, mulching blades will chop up the clippings into smaller pieces, which is beneficial for your lawn!

Finally, make sure you aren't mowing wet grass. If you mow when the grass is wet the clippings can stick together and clump up under the mowing deck which will cause excess strain to the mower and maybe even cause it to shut off.

If none of this works, you may want to use a string trimmer to remove the first two inches of your grass and then continue mowing as normal!

Hope this helps! Happy Mowing!

Is there a safety mechanism / cable on Husqvarna LGT2554 that will not allow blades to engage if it runs out of gas while mowing


None. The only safety switch that prevent blades from engaging is the reverse switch but that will just kill the engine.

It is more likely that the deck drive belt has came off only of the pulleys.

Check that the blades spin freely by hand. That may be in contact with the deck somewhere or one of the deck bearings may be seized. Regards Phil.

Troy Bilt model 60TG I hit a small piece of wood and the tractor


If you haven't already, check to see if there is a hunk of wood wedged between the blade(s) and mower deck. I've seen that happen. I pried the hunk of wood out with a crowbar and life was good again. The second time, someone ran over a campfire log they didn't see under leaves last fall and bent the blade spindle. It basically froze the spindle in place even though there wasn't anything wedged in there. I removed the belt from the top of the mower deck and then it started just fine..... although the blades and shaft were toast and had to be replaced. If you can disengage the mower deck without removing the belt(s), try it if you haven't already. See if it starts that way. If not, the issue may be more serious such as a broken connecting rod in the engine. Try the simple stuff above first to troubleshoot the cause.
