SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Blades will not engage

Lever that adjusts height does not make blades turn. You need to engage the blade lever and if you can not tell if the blades are turning then they probably aren't. check belt it could need replacement.

SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

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 babylock evolve serger. It serges fine w/o the blade engaged. Once I engage the blade, the stitches don't hit the fabric


most Sergers have a blade adjustment that allows you to move the blade closer to the sewing plate as well as further away sounds like yours may be to close to plate. Open the door to the underside of your sewing machine; their should be a round knob at the base of the blade are. Turn the blade until it moves away from the sewing plate. test and see if you have adjusted it enough so as not to cut your stitching off. hope this helps

I have a 42" mtd lawn tractor. The blades do not


The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?
