Question about Mtd LAWN MOWER PART # 683-04163B FRAME Assembly:RIDER

1 Answer

I am working with a Murray MTD Pro 42'' dual blade deck. I need to know how to adjust the cutting deck and remove the blades for sharpening.

    I'm sorry, I have never heard or seen a Murray MTD brand anything. I need to know which one it is and the model number located behind, underneath, or behind the seat. If it is a Murray the model number will look something like 42508X92 and if it is a MTD the model number will look something like this 13A345678. If you are removing the blades yourself, tip the mower back on it's rear end. There should be brackets there just for this purpose. The nuts on mower blades tighten as they turn to assure they won't fly off during use. So you are probably going to have to use an air wrench to remove the nuts (should only be one per blade.) They are right hand thread nuts. I can't help with the deck adjustment until I know what kind of mower you have. I hope this helps.

Ihave a craftsman ridding mower model #917.289900 new belt for the deck new blads it still leaves miss cut in the middle anybody know why?


usually if its missing cut it's not rotating fast enough, or the other thing it can be the blades have not been sharpened. some companies that make blades don't sharpen them so they can be handled, it will have a leading edge and you need a sharpening stone to put a cutting edge on the blade. and the blade has to be put in the right way round. flate top cutting edge bottom.

Yard works 4.5hp 42" cut lawn tractor cuts fine when mower deck is up on 4, but when it is lowered it cuts out and won't cut the grass.


4.5 hp will not power a 42 inch deck any way you cut it quite likely the blades need sharpened real bad .motor needs to run fast when tryng to cut also as that throws the grass out of the deck

How do i replace a blade that had fallen off. 42 inch tractor. The main problem is how to get underneath the tractor?


To replace blades, belts, sharpen blades, etc. one must remove what is called the cutting deck from the tractor.
Once the deck is off the tractor, pull it out, turn it over and you can work on the blades.

On a two blade deck, such as yours, there is generally an overlap between the cutting coverage of the blades so that you do not leave a mohawk. This does not work well on turns however, and the sharper the turn, the more grass is left. Overcoming that issue brings you up to a 3 blade deck. If your mower is leaving a strip of uncut grass while cutting in a straight line, somehow you are running blades for a smaller deck, thus there is no overlap. The mandrels are offset, one slightly in front of the other so that the blades do not hit each other. I would measure under the deck and see how long a blade could be and still fit within the deck and not strike the other blade, then ask a parts store to sell you something longer than what you have now.

If tires are the correct inflation, check the angle of the deck. The blades may need to be sharpened. There is a blade balancer you can purchase. If one blade is not as sharp as the other, it will have a little more weight on one side than the other.

Ajusting mower deck on husqvarva lawntractor been trying to make it level,has two cutting blades and this mower is not very old bought it last summer,


I think the two bladed units are 42" and down in size. The 48" are 3 bladed units. There are instructions in the manual for leveling the cut. If you do not have a manual, look on line for a manual, google it. First step is to get the mower sitting on a level piece of concrete. That way you know which corner needs to be raised or lowered. Then make sure your blades are mounted correctly. Usually you can see the adjusters, threaded bolts and nuts, or pins. Usually the deck comes level and gets **** up by someone taking the deck off to swap or sharpen blades.

Clipper blade sharpeners are availale but the cost of these typically start at about $300 and go as high as several thousand dollars. This makes it unaffordable for home use.
For affordable, professional clipper blade sharpening, I suggest you contact the folks at clipperparts.com

Your clipper moves at just one speed. There is no way to 'speed it up' if it is working correctly.
