SOURCE: Husqvarna Ride Lawn Mower does not want to start

I've discovered that if you leave key on battery will be drained to dead. Checking battery with meter shows +12v. When key is turned to start position nothing happens. When you connect meter to battery terminals and put key to start position the meter reads about .250 VDC. Even after taking battery to Advance Auto and have it checked it still does same thing. Eventually I jumped my mower with another battery that was being used in my scooter. Bingo! all worked well with jump. You would probably be able to jump with car battery with no problem.

SOURCE: A row of uncut grass left between blaces when mowing

Mowing too fast for the blade speed. Use higher engine speed or lower gear.
One or both blades too short?

SOURCE: uneven grass cutting

I have seen dull blades, blades not installed right and an un-level deck cause that.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a yardman 46 in cut riding mower, it is

Well one of the spindle assemblies, could be running a little slower on one side then the other. But I would take a guess that you are trying to cut grass, way too fast for the mower. Try running a ground speed a liitle slower and see what happens.
Good Day.

Do the graphics on the blade face up to the mower or down to the grass when fitting a new blade?


Many blade has grass side stamped into the metal.

You want the cutting to be on the leading edge either way; otherwords, the cutting sharp edge leading. Most blades also turn clockwise when viewed from the top and counter clockwise when viewed from the grass side

My ride on mower is not cutting the grass as the belt keeps on breaking after doing one strip of the garden iv bought 3 new belts in the space of 4 days it seems to only wear in one side then stretch and...


Have the pulleys checked for worn bearings and improper alignment which can cause this to happen Also the cheaper belts do break when cutting wet grass. Example.... My John Deeres belt cost $75 for a new factory one. A generic Goodyear belt runs $15. Guess what happens when I cut wet grass witha Goodyear belt? Yes it flies off. The Deere belt will stay on for it is made with a protective rubberized coating incased in fabric. If you are using a inexspensive belt you will get a lot of grief from it

I have a single cylinder Ranch King riding lawn mower. Model # 133K6796205. Bought in 1993. I need to know what type of oil to put in it? I am also having a problem with the grass collector. Even if...


Hello You can use straight 30 w oil most engine manufactures agree for summer equipment now for winter where it gets cold like in a snow blower the request you to use 5-W30. As far as your grass collector check your blades #1 to see if they are the correct blades for that mower. #2 yes the engine will overheat as the clumped of grass will slow down the blades causing more load on the engine.This is not a uncommon problem wet or damp grass will clump up even if you do not have a grass collector,it will stick under the deck again causing problems.Hopefully this helps.
Thanks Ben

The mower is mowing uneven in the front. what can i do? it seems that it is scalping the grass but both sides are level


Look under the mower deck. If you can't see well and work on it, you may have to remove the mower deck and flip it over on the ground. Grass and mud buildup in the decj could cause a blade to pinch grass, 'scalping' the lawn. Clean it all out. Dull blades cause cut grass to look torn and brown. Remove and sharpen. Bent blade will cause uneven cut. Replace it. Good luck! Please rate if you found this helpful, thanks!

Bog when trying to mow


you are cutting to much grass & it isn't kicking it out fast enough out of deck which will bog it down it might help if you clean out the bottom of the deck & also dont cut really low if grass is really tall also cutting wet grass will aslo cause the bogging if i can further help e-mail me wade at wadembly@aol.com

Motor has low torque


common complains for electric & cordless mower is that they are not ment for cutting on wet or dump grasses or long tall grasses they will bog down. for this type of unit blade should be extremely sharp. also clean the under the deck so you can better air flow for the blade. if your switch & rectifier are new & in right connection then have you armature check for short circuit..

Mower won't start


13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.
