Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
It is a craftsman dyt 4000. When I engage the blades, the blades turn then stop on their own,is there an adjustment? There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason it just happens sporadically. However it does occur several times during each use. It may ride 40 feet cutting then the blades simply stop turning for a period and then they start again on their own. That is why I am thinking something must be out of adjustment.
Look for your model number under the seat. Sears website is www.searspartsdirect.com. It sounds like a bearing may be wearing out, or a spring on one of the brake arms is not holding the brake arms off the pulleys;
Or an idler pulley is not holding tension on the belt.
There is not adjustment I know of, just replacing worn parts. Hope this helps. Good day.
