My MYD edger breaks off the adjustment rod any fixes

I've broken two of them. I had a lot of vibration, and the blade was bent. I'm replacing the rod and the blade to hopefully fix the problem. If it breaks again, and I still have the vibration, I'll look at replacing the belt and possibly the pulleys.

Mtd 19 In. 173 CC OHV 3-In-1 self propelled. Drive will not engage. Appears as if the belt is too loose even when the drive control bar is depressed all the way. Is this adjustable? This mower hasn't...

Between the handle and the connection to the drive system, look for adjustment screw or nut and screw on cable. Maybe even check the spring tension, if handle is spring loaded and the spring is stretched it will not engage drive system. If no adjustment to be found then you must get new belt. Good Luck...

Adjusting mtd carb. i there a set turns for the adjustment screws

Basic screw adjustments to start with are 3/4 of a turn from the farthest "in" setting. Don't tighten down on the screws too hard, turn down just enough intil they stop, then turn out from there. After engine starts, you can fine tune the idle speed and then the high speed crews.
