How do I drop the lawn cutting attachment from under the tractor for inspection and lubrication?


It' pretty easy to do once the pins are removed. Make sure cutting deck is flat on the ground, on a piece of plywood. Once disconnected, raise mower deck height adjustment handle to highest position, and slide deck out from under tractor. If it's a wreck, try SearsParts online... I got a whole new deck for my LOYTH20F42T for about 125.00 delivered.

Why is it that my riding Lawnmower doesn't cut when I lower the deck to cut the grass lower


Tighten or replace drive belt. Before you do that though, with the deck raised right up and engine switched off reach underneath deck and grab hold of blades and try to move them up and down. Make sure there is no build up of debris between pulleys and guards. Remove the belt off pulleys if you can. Turn blades and check they are free to turn. What you are doing here is checking the blade spindle bearings for wear or damage. If they have excessive movement or feel rough and/or tight replace them. If they are good and the belt looks in good order, tighten belt That is done by adjusting the deck rods so the deck moves back. You tube have some videos of belt adjustment.

My 42inch craftsman deck does not have wheels on it to keep an even cut.....is there some type of adjustment on the deck itself......it is cutting uneven


There is one thing that commonly causes the deck to cut unevenly. The mandrel/spindle has one of the ears cracked. Probably have to remove deck to get a good look at all of them.

If you want antiscalping wheels for your deck, they can be purchased and added to the machine.

I hope this helps you out.

How to remove shaft assembly from mandrel housing of a husqvarna yth2348


It's much easier to do on the tractor.
1. Leave deck installed.
2. Jack tractor up and lower deck.
3. Run a heavy wire through the mandrel pulley's tie down hole.
4. Raise deck and tie wire around the deck.
5. Lower deck and remove top nut.
6. Raise deck and remove shaft.
You can modify this procedure to loose the nut if you don't have a jack and remove it once the deck is off. Retorque nut to 35 ft. lbs during install.

I have a craftsman gt 5000 model 917.276220 runs fine but when mowing deck is engaged it wants to die when under a load or cutting tall grass, it will stay running but when i start to cut it bogs down?


not possitive, but sounds like 1 of the bearings on the mower deck is starting to seaze up.I would start with that. Remove the deck and belts and check all the pullys and bearings for free movement.

My mowers cuts uneven I replaced the blades but it still cuts uneven how can I level it?


Park mower on a level flat surface ( a concrete garage floor is ideal ) lift deck up until you can put a piece of a 2x4 flat underneath the deck and lower deck until it just contacts the 2x4. loosen adjustment nuts or turnbuckles and adjust until the deck just starts to clear the 2x4. this should level your deck. Now , lift the deck and remove the 2x4. put blade height lever on a known cut length and with a tape measure, measure the tips of the blades from the floor to the blade tip...they should all be the same within 1/8 of an inch...if not then you either have a bent blade, bent spindle shaft, or spindle bolts are loose or misaligned. Your deck could be warped too...depending on how hard a lick it took...good luck !!! ;-D

Install belt on toro mower model 70041


For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
  1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
  2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
  3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
  4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
  5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

Need to fit belt that turns blades on husqvarna lt 120 can you help.


You will have to remove the cutting deck from under the ride on to have better access to the belt
If you take a picture of the cutting deck once it is removed it will assist you in putting it back together.
To remove the cutting head belt from the engine bottom pulley you must push the foot pedal down and lock it in place to take the pressure off the belt to remove it from the pulley.
There is most probably a rod that hangs down close to the side of the pulley which is there to stop the belt from coming off when the pressure has been taken off the belt, you have to loosen the rod retaining bolt and move it away from the side of the pulley to get the room to remove the belt, there will be a cable that adjusts the deck cutting height which has to be removed from the cutting deck to be able to remove the deck, there should only be 3 anchor points that hold the deck under the mower, 2 on the sides and a steel rod throught the front with spring clips on them for quick removal.
when the deck is out you will see t hat both the belt pulleys on the deck have plastic guards on them which have to be removed to be able to get the belt off the pulleys.
Replace the belt and install all the parts in the reverse order that you removed them in.
Is a reasonably large job for a person who has never done it before but it is a job that anyone can do if they just take their time and also a few pics before removing just for a reference
Hope this helps
