Possible solution
Belt wore out and stretched
There should be an adjuster to tighten the belt
Could spray with belt dressing but not a permanent fix. Have to spray every so often.

The tines are not moving forward on my Rotavator. The engine is Tecumsah Vantage 50. The tines move backwards and the engine seems fine. The rotavator will not move forward

I have seen a number of domestic rotavators but haven't yet seen one with a reverse gear. You didn't make it clear in your description whether yours has a reverse gear and that is all that is working or whether it usually only moves forward but is moving backwards?

While it is theoretically possible for a 2-stroke engine to run backwards, your engine is a 4-stroke that is incapable of running backwards and so it would seem the gear selector is stuck if it has one or someone has carried out repair work and made a mistake or something else is broken.

The only thing that comes to mind is some of the older designs used an over-long drive belt that crossed in the middle like a figure eight in order to reverse the driven pulley and replaced the belt with one that seemed the right size would cause the machine to run backwards.

More information needed, perhaps...

The blade stops turning when mowing on my alko 9-55 How do I get to the clutch? Could it be a belt slipping?

Check to see if the belt is loose. If so check that the automatic adjuster is not jammed up with grass clippings. The belt may be worn out, especially if it has been slipping for a long while. Note the way it is fitted before you remove it!! Take a photo of it.

Alko 700/620/600 mower brake problem with peerless 700 transmission

Hi, your problem is simple and is all to do with the brake you adjusted. Remove the two bolts, one either side of the brake adjuster, remove the brake assembly, remove clean and lubricate the two pins and the holes they slide in. Reassemble the brake assembly and adjust the centre nut so that the brake comes on and off. This should be about a quarter inch of travel on the short brake lever. Regards Phil.

I have stripped my ALKO ride-on mower down to replace the drive belt. However, I cannot get the drive belt over the engine pulley, due to a metal obstruction getting in the way. To det round this, I need...

You will need to take off he main pulley. I did this by knocking in a wood wedge between the drive pulley and the deck and clamping on some molegrips so the pulley did not go round when undoing the nut at the bottom other wise the motor turns, Undo the nut anticlockwise as usual. The pulley assembly then drops down so you can remove the drive belt

Hi. I have an Alko T18-102HD ride on lawn mower that is starting to go very slow in reverse and forward. It gets to the point of slowing to a stop when reversing up a slope. I fitted a new drive belt...

I had the same problem with my Alko going slow in forward and reverse. Believe it or not the problem is caused by a build up of grass cuttings around the hydro clutch mechanism. If you follow the mechanism from the foot pedal you will probably find the actuator is being prevented from engaging by a build up of old grass. Clean it out and you should find it restores normal operation. This has happened to me a few times so now I blow out the grass on a regular basis with an air compressor which stops me having any problems. It also stops a hefty bill from the service dealer :-)

Belt slipping have tried to tighten, just bought used

When the belt slips, it can be 2 different places. The trick is to look at the front roller when the belt slips. If the front roller stops with the walking belt, then the drive belt (between the motor and front roller) is loose and can't be fixed by tightening the walking belt. If the drive belt is slipping, it needs to be tightened or replaced. I need the brand and model number to help you further.

The belt keeps slipping off on my Alko Highline ride-on mower. I need a manual so that I can double-check that I am putting the belt on to the pulleys correctly, and also to see it there is anyway that I...

Check and see how much play you have in the belt the way you have it installed. If you have a lot of play you have the belt the wrong way around the idler. The flat side of belt (outside of belt) goes up against the idler. It might take a couple of tries to get it routed properly but you should be able to get it fairly easily.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
