If the belt is shiny on the sides and slipping replace it, belts need to be tensioned during regular maintenance before they slip.

Mower deck belt adjustment


I am not positive but there may not be any adjustment for the belt. I have had a number of ridding mowers and none of them had a adjustment for the belt. If it is slipping it is most likely worn and needs to be replaced. The ones that I have worked on do have a spring loaded pulley that keeps the belt tight. It is possible that you don't have tension on the belt maybe spring is weak or broken. Hope this helps

Pto won't ingadge


If it is a cable PTO which operates from a handle there are two types I've worked on. one has not adjustment, the other has a spring which can be moved to compensate for streching of the mowing deck belt. If your mower has no adjustment than more tham likely it is the belt.

Replaced deck belt and it keeps coming off,whats wrong?


The belt tensioners on top of the deck need adjusted, or you make have to adjust the pulleys to tighten the belt. Sometimes if you have the deck lowered to low to the ground, uneven terain can cause that. If you have everything adjusted correctly, simply raise the deck another notch and mow.

Tighten belts on my Yard machine ride on lawn mower


There is rarely any adjustment to tighten the belts on a riding mower. The belts are tensioned by an idler pulley which is controlled by a idler pulley spring. Almost all riding mower belts must be accurate to the hundredth of an inch or no less than accurate to 1/8th inch. It is very rare for a belt to be in full inch increments. This is why automotive or general purpose belts will not work on a riding mower. I know it is tempting to try to get by with a $10 belt rather than spending $35 or more for the correct belt. Trust me, you will only waste your money trying to get by with the inferior belts. Riding mower belts and extra heavy duty and generally will not stretch at all. Generally they will have 5 or more strands of a Kevlar type material so that stretching is virtually non existent. If the belt will not tighten then it is most likely not the correct belt. If the belt is in fact the proper belt and still is too loose, then you should look for pulley wear or weak tension springs. Metal pulleys do wear and tension spring do loose tension.

It's fun to ride around the yard on the mower, watching scrubby grass (and weeds) turn into trimmed lawn. However, when the grass looks as bad after you mow as it did before, or the mower doesn't want to start, riding mowers aren't as much fun. That's when it's time to put on your Fix-It Club hat and have some more fun.

A riding lawn mower is a gas-powered machine for cutting grass. The engine turns a rotating blade that cuts the top off the grass blades to a specified height. The operator sits atop the mower on a tractor-type seat with speed and height controls nearby. Riding mowers also can be used to pull small utility carts for other yard jobs.

To remove the mower deck:
  1. Make sure that the parking brake is locked.
  2. Place scrap lumber under the front and rear of the deck.
  3. Use the deck lever to lower the deck.
  4. Remove attachments from the deck.
  5. Remove the blade drive belt from the front pulley.
  6. Remove the front and rear deck fasteners, following instructions in your owner's manual.
  7. Use the deck lever to raise the deck.
  8. Remove the scrap lumber.
  9. Remove the deck from under the mower.
To adjust the drive belt:
  1. Remove the belt from the large idler pulley.
  2. Remove the belt from the adjustable idler pulley.
  3. Carefully remove the spring-loaded large idler pulley.
  4. Loosen the adjustable idler pulley and move it slightly toward the rear of the mower to tighten it[md]or move it toward the front to loosen it—and retighten the pulley.
  5. Replace the belt.
  6. Check belt tension and readjust as needed.
