I have a 1987 Toro GTS Self propelled walk behind mower- My question is that it runs fine but but seems to be slippling and can't get out of it's own way

  • Check for belt stretching even if it looks good. Next possibility
Is worn smooth, or oily surfaces on drive wheels. Can you tell if it slips on drive wheel, or those driven. Some Hondas have belt tensioners which can be too loose. See if axle on drive wheel is in a slotted, rather than round whole, meaning you could loosen/retighten while putting pressure on it to lengthen distance to driven wheels.

I have Model YTH2548 riding mower. The RPM's are set as high as they will go but the mower moves along very slowly. Could the drive belt be slipping? Is there a tensioner pully that may need to be...

When you raise the front or rear of the tractor, and push on the belt (engine off of course), is there a lot of play or slack in the drive belt. At this point from what I have read, the issue is the drive belt, and is slipping when in gear and when it heats up. The next thing to do would be to replace the belt, but I not sure if this procedure is an option for you. When you inspect the under side of the tractor, and inspect the moving parts and pulleys, if any of these components are in need of replacement, you will be able to tell by either rotating them manually or visually inspecting them. At this point due to the low hours, I suspect the drive belt is stretched out, and is considered a maintenance replacement part procedure.

Craftsman front wheel self-propelled, push mower: belt keeps slipping off tension pin. Also, the wheels don't rotate as rapidly as when I first bought it last year.

Make sure the pulleys are aligned perfectly straight and replace the old belt with a new one. The pulleys have an allan head set screw you need to loosen to adjust the pulley.

Belt seems to be slipping

good evening. I would suggest checking the tine bearings as well alignment. I had (have) a 2003 mtd rear tine which blew the entire bearing box for the second time. The times should have little to no flex when push or pulled. Fortunately, MTD came good for the first rebuild even though my warranty had expired...they covered the parts and labour was all mine. If the tines seem properly working, possibly try out this website to get the 100% correct belt....hope this helps.
