Question about Troy Garden
The belt was new,broke in less than fifteen minutes.When I brought the mower from service center,I noticed that only fourth gear would work.I could move the gear shifter to the eight speed position no difference,I lowered the deck to mow and engine stalled.I as all my power equipment,I had a hobs meter installed at new purchase.The mower only has 31.6 hours! I have had four belts installed since new 2008.The repair technician said that a lot of Troy Bilt Ponys had numerous problems related to my situation.Any suggestions and a how to instructions,will be very appreciated.The authorized repair center ,told me it would cost me about another $200.00 to access the problem.By profession I am a Airline pilot.I understand the necessity of regular maintenance Has there been any recalls of this matter? Thank You.Terrence Latronis
The bearings may be bad and freezing up, this will cause the belt to smoke and tear up as well as make the pulley wobble . Does it smell like burning rubber ?? If not then you have a pulley out of line and or a pulley that's cracked or broken. Also check and make sure the deck pins are all in place and the locks are down on the quick release on front and side of deck. While the blades are disengaged turn all the blade hubs (shaft spindles) and pulleys to see if the turn fairly easy. Check for play or wobble in the pulleys and blade hubs (shaft spindles), bearings and blade shaft attach to these pulleys. Also check the idler pulley(also called the tensioner pulley for wear and check to see that they are in alignment with each other). It may be a bad transmission shifter plate bearing.
