Question about Husqvarna Garden

Open Question

My husqvarna W4815 comercial 48" walk behind mower's left wheel stopped pulling. I have recently had the drive belts replaced, so I pulled the left pulley assembly off, cleaned the pulley's with a wire brush, reassembled without improvement. We can rule out the transmission, however there is a little play in the drive shaft bearing but not enough to make it quit pulling. I have adjusted the left steering shaft to the end of the adjustment;no help.

If the belt is loose it may simply be worn out and need to be replaced. Look carefully to be sure that the belt didn't come off one of the pulley wheels as this might give it the appearance of being loose.

The way the belt tightener is engineered, there is no tightening to it, just spring tension. Get back and let me know where it is at. I know I can assist you in gettting to the bottom of this problem.

SOURCE: Craftsman rotary mower, p/n 917.374821 will not move sometimes.

It is quite possible that one or the other of your pinions (item 55 in parts manual) has gone bad in addition to the wheels. Start the mower, engage the drive and lift the back end just enough to clear the ground and see if both wheels turn. If only one wheel turns, attempt to stop it from turning by setting it on the ground at an angle, if the opposite wheel does not turn, you will need to inspect the pinions.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

It sounds like the cable still needs more adjustment. The cable needs to be tighter. This is going to be hard to explain by typing. But I will give it a try. When you pull the handle in about 1/2 way mark the place where the lever on the drive motor is at. And take the cable loose and reattach the cable back to the mark that you made previously. So when the bar is released, it is like it is pulled in half way now. I hope that this makes sense. Let me know if I need to try to explain more.

Self propell not working right


Leave aside all the puffery about 3-1 and such, you described a front wheel drive (pull) walk-behind (FWD), but are asking why the rear wheels won't propel. When you push down the hand grip the front wheels should spin free. Whan you lower from wheels by releasing pressure on hand grips, turning wheels lowered to ground should propel the mower along with its unpowered rear wheels now turning be ground contact. Reminder, never, ever lift rear drive wheels of any mower off the ground while walking behind with engine running:
  1. You could be struck by blade propelled object.
  2. You could pull mower and spinning blade backward onto your feet.
  3. You could lose balance and be pulled forward in a fall.
Contemporary FWD mowers are recognized by a black chain housing on deck top leading from engine to left front of deck. RWD propelling chains are situated underneath deck so cannot be seen from above.

Why isn't Lawnboy lawn mower model NO. 10604 drive not working


Inspect the pulley where the belt loops on the wheel transmission. There is a tension spring, that when you pull the level, it puts tension on the belt. If that spring is missing or the pulley does not provide tension the wheels will not turn because the transmission is not being engaed..

Hydrostatic drive is weak


Try pulling back on the left foot pedal. This manually adjusts the drive belt tension and is a sign that the engine pulley has worn to the point the belt looses traction. A local repairman told me this last week and mine works fine now although in the very near future I'll need to replace the pully. Good luck
