One of the blades will not cut in heavy grass and the tension on the pulley seems more slack than the blade that will cut


Sounds as if the deck belt is stretched. Replace the belt and make sure it is routed correctly. When the belt is off of the unit, make sure each blade assembly rotates without resistance. One of the mandrel assemblies could be seized.

Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?

Need a troubleshooting manual for a craftsman mod. 917.287070


Went out to cut grass and the blades will not engage and when I put it in gear it does not move. Belts are intact. I cleaned the deck of dirt and grass. Still nothing. Just replaced the cable to engage the blades last year. Cable seems to be working.

I have a model 944-604810 riding lawn mower and find that it leaves a trail of cut grass even though it is equipped with a mulching blade and a new mulching cover. It would appear that the grass is not...


yes that is most likely the cause of it, also, you have to cut more often when mulching, and the higher the cutting deck, the more likely the grass will blow out without getting mulched enough. More than likely, the blades are dull, and/or the grass is too high, or possibly even wet if it is high.

Riding mower


If the grass is very tall (more than 10") you will have to slow down to less than 1 mph, if you have a mulch kit on this unit, remove it to get the grass out as quickly as possible. Also, sharp blades & a level deck are important.

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
