SOURCE: I have a troy bilt 42 inch 17 hp lawn tractor. The

One or more of your drive belts is in need of adjustment or replacement, maybe. Possibly, your electric (or manual) PTO clutch could also be adjusted. You do have the spring tensioner on the deck engaged, right? You say the engine doesn't bog when this happens so I am inclined to think "clutch" and/or "PTO belt" to the deck and/or the "deck tensioner" are the things to check.

The tensioner will be the easiest, it is a handle on the left side ON the deck. Has a BIG spring on it. Make sure it is engaged.

Is yours a Troy Bilt manufactured in Troy New York or is it another manufacturer (MTD?). Troy Bilt is actually out of business, having sold the Troy name to a variety of makers depending on the model line. I don't have the run down on who makes what any more (tillers, chippers, mowers, blowers, trimmers, etc.), but Troy Bilt of Troy, NY is no more. :-(

I have a 16 HP Troy with 42 inch deck driven through a electric clutch. I also have a "grass pump" on my deck. Important maintenance tips: Keep the bearings greased, keep the deck clean underneath. The belt on the deck should have the tensioner released when you are NOT mowing. Keep the blades sharp and in good repair. Mow with engine at full speed. When you get to areas of heavy growth, slow the tractor down (hydro drive) or reduce to a lower gear (gear drive). NEVER adjust speed using the "clutch" (hydro drive or gear drive). When you engage the blades (electric or manual) always have the engine just above idle, bring the engine speed up slowly to preserve the belts and reduce stress on all components.

I am sure this is the fix for your trouble. If there is anything else or if I missed the ball, please let me know and we will go further.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

On my trroy-bilt lawn tractor pony i was in high grass it seem to stop cutting smoke came from the deck stop cutting the handle that engage the blade become reaaly easy to move nothing happened


It sounds like you got into a job that was too big for the machine, and you may have either burned up the drive belt, or toasted the transmission or clutch.
Someone knowledgeable about such things should be able to raise it up in the air and look underneath and discover which problem you have.
God bless your efforts.

I have a craftman riding mower model 917-273381, It will run & cutt grass good for about 4 to 5 min & then stop. I`ve replaced carb kit & check the kill switch. It still doing the same thing.


How long does it have to sit before it starts again? Does it need to be jumped? If battery is old or not recharging you can loose power. I had a regulator go bad and mine would keep dying. I would charge the battery and mow for awhile then would die again. Have you checked battery and regulator?

Either through the inlet valve stem seal, or the needle in the carb is leaking, start by fitting an inline fuel tap so there is no chance of fuel leaking when the machine is stood.

just jack it up so you can get under the deck and unscrew the bolt on center of ech blade take note on how the curves of blade are angled do one at a time incase you forget but bolt back up tight and you are ready to cut if you try to resharpen the blades make sure you balance them or they will mess up the deck bearings

No, it is not heavy duty enough to drive a blade. It should have cuttting line in it and it only can use up to .065" string (factory recommended).

Is this the first time cutting grass with a lawn tractor?
How tall of grass?
Use the grass cutting heigth adjustments on the tractor to a higher setting when cutting tall grass. Cut again to a lower height setting on the second pass. Grass higher than your tractor is not good for your tractor. Follow the manual instructions for best results.
