Launch on take off

I have a poulan riding mower , just bought it off another person , used very little . It is a 38" cut , 15.5 briggs , 5 speed , 1 year old . Here is the worst problem. When taking off , no matter how slow you let off the clutch , most of the time the belt grabbs so fast that the front wheels come off the ground 4 to 6 inches !!!!!!! Is there an adjustment for this crappy mower ? It jurks so bad my neck and back hurt after using it . Worst in 3rd , 4th and lanching gear 5th !!

I have the same problem sometimes, but it is only when I let the brake / clutch out fast. When you go to let the clutch off, and you are in gear. Try easing off on throttle, you can increase the throttle after the clutch is out. THis should help with you sore neck. Another thing you may want to try is adjusting the throttle calbe. It should show or tell you in the manual how to do this,

Need to fine out if it would what other size of belt you can use on 38 inch cut on poulan riding lawn mower


Are you asking what size belt to use or are you asking what other size belt, like you want to use one a little smaller or a little larger? If that is the case, what difficulty are you having that you would need to do that? Did you put a Craftsman deck on a Poulan or something odd like that?
