My belt on my Jr z445 54 inch cut squeals when I try to go and engage blades and mower hesitates to go new belt and new plastic drive pulley

I would start with taking the belt back off and spinning each blade to see if it is binding, check under the deck for some wire or nylon twine that has become wrapped around some place, see if you can wiggle each spindle sideways looking for bad bearings ,there is a bearing on top and one on bottom of each spindle.I have found on a lot of deck bearings I have replaced they had grease zerks on the spindle but the bearings were sealed type and no way would the grease gun ever help. Let us know

Cub cadet riding mower Mower Blade and shaft wiggle

I am not familiar with Cub Cadet but would suggest that if spindle is loose [wiggles] then one or more bearings need replacing. Remove the whole deck from the machine and turn over. Check the blade [s] are firm. If not undo the nut holding the blade on and remove the spindle and its housing from the deck frame. Remove the driving pulley also. Usually these types of drives have a spindle with a special fitting on the lower end for the blades to fit onto. Some are forged on the end of the spindle and the bearings come off the other end. Others will be removeable and so the bearings will come off each end. What ever, clean up with fuel and replace both bearings. You may have to remove the seals on the inside to let grease in. Make sure the top bearing has plenty of grease as it may miss out if all the grease goes down. Some machines it is better to leave the seals on top bearing. I have found that it does not pay to use the hose connection to clean the deck as the water destroys the bearings and only half cleans the deck. Best to put planks onto trailer or ute deck and run mower up so you can get underneath with big screw driver every now and then. Take blades off and sharpen them then also.

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower

Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

Even new blades can be out of balance, but my guess would be either the other blade spindle, or the tensioner pulley bearing.

How to install new bearing

What bearing, what kind of tractor. If you're referring to spindle bearing for blades, then you would remove the spindle housing from the deck after removing blade. Remove bearing retainers and press shaft/bearings out. Need model numbers and brand to be of more help.

Mower deck spindle replacement

first take the blade off the spindle, then take the belt off the top, now there should be a nut on the top of the spindle you will have to remove that nut once you get that one off the pully will come off the spindle, now you will have to remove the bolts holding the spindle housing to the deck, put the spindle housing in a vise, put the nut back on the top of the spindle so that if you mass the threads with the hammer you are going to hit it with them you can fix them with the nut by taking it off again... now you have the nut on the top of the spindle and its in the vise, now hit the spindle to knock the bearing out of the bottum once you push the bearing out, you can remove the spindle out the bottum, now flip the housing over and take a punch and push the other bearing out if you are going to replace the bearings when replacing the spindle, i would reconend it... if you need anything else just xomment and ill repost...
good luck
