Go to... http://www.managemyhome.com/mmh/owner_manuals and enter your model #. It should be under your seat. This will give you the owners manual and will explain how to do it.

    I see you left a "Thanks for trying" comment. Was this not what you needed to get your belt back on? The owners manual tells you the proceedure. Did this not give you the information you needed? Dwain

You did not finish the statement about without the blades but if your saying what I thing you are...Ah Oh Sounds like you may have a bent crank..Did you hit something with the blades...take the belt off and start the motor..and Check for wobble of the V drive there should be NONE if it does it could be bent itself or the crank...good luck

HI, I have a Cub Cadet 50" cut I had a similar problem and I had to change the spring on the idler pulley it had lost tension and replacing it solved my problem. Not familiar with your mower but if it has the same principles as mine you might want to try that.

Tractor shuts off when clutch is engaged craftman 22 hp 50" mower


Hello,

I had the same problem. My problem was something was preventing the blades from spinning, so the 1st thing you can do is check to make sure your blades turn, and test this while the mower is off.

While it is a pain, you can also take the deck out and check to see if this help and you are able to freely turn the blades. If everything is working properly, you should be able to turn the blades by hand.

In my case, I has a stick jammed into the belts and pulley, so when I would engage the blade, it would cause my mower to stall when it tried to engage the belt.

Hope this helps.
