Pull the belt cover off on the side of the engage lever and you will see that it is not a wire cable that engages the idler pulley. It's a rod connected to a long spring. Perhaps the spring came off or is defective as it puts tension on the idler pulley against the drive belt when you engage the blades. Further, there is a return spring to pull the idler pulley away from the drive belt when you disengage the blades. Check all the connections for the springs and see that the engage lever is mounted tightly. Also check the idler pulley itself.

What causes the grass to row up?. We've had a rainy summer and sometimes the grass gets a little taller than normal.When it rows up and turns brown the yard is very unsightly. It seems to be coming out...


You may have worn blades that dont overlap anymore.

You should take your blades off and have them compared to new blades and see if they are a little shorter than they used to be.
If not....have them sharpened and put them back on. Check your Swishers belt tensioner to make sure the blades are all turning freely.

I need replacement parts for my 60" Swisher Trailmower / model T1360B1 When I went to the Swisher website, it says its obsolete. Where can I get parts.


I RECENTLY BOUGHT A USED SWISHER FOR $700 13.5 HP 60 INCH I BELIEVE THE MODEL IS 1340D? I'M HOPING I DIDN'T GET RIPPED OFF AND THIS IS SOMETHING SIMPLE..I THINK THAT'S THE MODEL NUMBER I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE THE STAMP O N THE SIDE ISN'T TO LEGIBLE , ANYWAY WHEN I SPRAY STARTING FLUID INTO THE AIR FILTER IT RUNS BUT THEN STOPS. IT HAS A NEW BATTERY, FUEL LINE AND FILTER AND I JUST TOOK THE CARBURETOR OFF AND SPRAYED IT OUT WITH GUNK CLEANER TO NO AVAIL. THE FLOAT BOWL WAS REALLY CRUDDY. I'M WONDERING WHERE I CAN GET A NEW CARB? ARE THEY AVAILABLE? IF SO WHERE? THANKS

I have a pull start swisher trailmower. The cord


the cord could be tanlged up, pull it all the way out and make sure it is round the "bobbin" and not slipped off the side on the shaft. you wight be able to slip it back onto the bobbin with a screwdriver or piece of hooked wire - Also you are using the proper mix of 2 stroke and fuel?, 50:1 fuel to oil, or more for older.worn engines, say 40:1 for old engines, they run better like that - smell nice too.

apart from that... oil the puller mechanism, normal engine oil will do the trick - it can only help.

Left side of mower fell into hole while mowing - blade does not rotate smoothly and when blade spinning at full speed makes loud rattling did i bend one of the prop shafts ?


yes, it is bent, the equilibrium has been thrown off balance, unless you can hammer it back straight, I suggest replacing the blade with a new one or have a machine shop press your old blade back into shape

Swisher lawnmower wont mow


Yes It would. The belt doesn't just wear it slackens also. It will probably turn the blades when not under load but as soon at it attempts to cut grass there is not enough grip.
Replace the belts first and it should be fine.
