Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348

Want to change blades on Craftsman 42" mower

Need to get blades off as one is vibrating, but Cannot get blades off as I cannot see how to keep it from spinning when I crank on the nut. I guess I will try and power wash under the deck tomorrow to see if that gives me any clues. I think the loose blade may have ground off the "star" that keeps it in place under the nut, as when I push up on it, I cannot feel it catching on anything, so I may have a more complex problem on that side. I tried getting the blade off on the other side too, but could not stop it from turning, as I need to sharpen the blade. Is there a hole somewhere to jam a screwdriver into to keep it from spinning? What is the trick?

I believe that you need a block of wood which will fit into the deck to stop the blade from turning. I use a 1x6 block it fits perfectly. Did you remove the deck? Try www.ehow.com. should have a video that shows you.

Check your spindles, especially the shafts in the spindles. If one of them is bent, it'll make the blades vibrate as they spin. You can find replacement shafts and spindles at Partsbuggy.com.

Craftsman 42" Tractor Blade Problem


sounds like either the spindal bearings are shot or maybe the spindal shaft is bent. check for up and down slop at the blades. then turn blades towards each other and check that the heigth lines up. also chec the idler pully to make sure it is not slapping around.

Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.


Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....
