SOURCE: remove pulley on mower deck spindle

These are generally held on with just one large nut, I recommend you use a impact wrench otherwise it mau prove difficult ( you wont be able to hold the spindle tight enough) and certainly you will need a impact wrench to reassemble the spindle

Toro 52" need a spindle shaft for the deck,part no.78-6710 hard to find & very expensive,maybe there is some used ones around the countryside in Oz on a retired mower deck?


there is three on ebay by your part number. Toro Wheel Horse Mower Spindle Shaft 78 6710 $54 is about average for this type of repair. But if yours is straight and just wore at the bearing area you can JB Weld it back to size .

I have a Toro model number 20622 auto start go forward and backward the blade won't turn it's like it's got a break on it how do I get this to work when I pulled the lever nothing happens


Anon, a lot of these Toro decks do have a type of brake on one of the idler arm and pulley to stop blade. You will have to get a repair/service manual if your owners manual does not show it. Normally can be seen in deck belt installation diagram. If blade brake checks out OK, it is possible one or both blade spindles bearings are seizing.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to fit the mower deck belt on a ***** LT130?


The best way is to remove the deck from the mower. At this time you should grease the pulleys and spindles. there are four post that hold it. two on either side and one in the front. they are held by cotter pins. lower your deck level down makes it easier. you will have one engagement cable that just pops out it has a spring on it. then slide it out from the easiest side or pick the mower up and pull deck out . at this point it will be apparent where the belt goes and do your your other maintenance of cleaning and lube. factory says lube spindles every 8 hours of use.Then put it back under and re attach.

One side of mower wont turn


Your spindle may be seized. try turning the side by hand. Try moving it back and forth. If there is movement then your bearing in your spindle is bad. I f no movement than check under your deck to make sure nothing is stuck holding the blade from turning. You will probably have to replace your belt as well

Mower blades speed slows down in thick grass, the engine speed remains constant 217D


Hi, check that the belt is not worn and bottoming out in any of the pulleys and also check that none of the deck spindles are stiff to turn with the belt removed. Regards Phil.

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.

Useful diagrams for removing the cutting deck, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14794

For deck belt diagrams, http://216.213.143.2/ProAuthor/ManProc.cfm?ManualID=425&ProcID=14796

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.

Mower leaves uncut strips between blades.


measure blades on a level surface.place each blade side to side and see if their is a difference,all measurements should be the same,if not you have a bent deck or a spindle that is bent.

Replacement blade position.


The blades have such a close tolerance tip to tip on a V belt deck that it makes no difference where they are positioned, On a 3 blade deck the center spindle is forward of the two outer spindles. So for that reason you still get a quality cut. Most all commercial units use a V belt and have a good quality cut.
Some john deere mowers have a timing belt with cogs like a car and their blades have to be in time
90 degrees perpindicular to each other and locked down and if you strike something then the timing will be off and your back working on your mower instead of cutting grass,and the belts are twice as expensive than a v belt.
