The spindle bolts probably came loose and fell off. Look at the other spindle. Take one of the bolts (and nut) to the hardware store and get a matching set for the ones that were lost. Bolt the spindle back on - you should be good to go...

Hi,

You will find the diagram on the left side of the deck as you sit on tractor by left foot. It will be located under the foot pedal that has the routing diagram specifically for your Troy-Bilt mower model. Note that owner's manuals may not have the most current schematic.

Also you can check this link to download the diagram:-

One or more of your drive belts is in need of adjustment or replacement, maybe. Possibly, your electric (or manual) PTO clutch could also be adjusted. You do have the spring tensioner on the deck engaged, right? You say the engine doesn't bog when this happens so I am inclined to think "clutch" and/or "PTO belt" to the deck and/or the "deck tensioner" are the things to check.

The tensioner will be the easiest, it is a handle on the left side ON the deck. Has a BIG spring on it. Make sure it is engaged.

Is yours a Troy Bilt manufactured in Troy New York or is it another manufacturer (MTD?). Troy Bilt is actually out of business, having sold the Troy name to a variety of makers depending on the model line. I don't have the run down on who makes what any more (tillers, chippers, mowers, blowers, trimmers, etc.), but Troy Bilt of Troy, NY is no more. :-(

I have a 16 HP Troy with 42 inch deck driven through a electric clutch. I also have a "grass pump" on my deck. Important maintenance tips: Keep the bearings greased, keep the deck clean underneath. The belt on the deck should have the tensioner released when you are NOT mowing. Keep the blades sharp and in good repair. Mow with engine at full speed. When you get to areas of heavy growth, slow the tractor down (hydro drive) or reduce to a lower gear (gear drive). NEVER adjust speed using the "clutch" (hydro drive or gear drive). When you engage the blades (electric or manual) always have the engine just above idle, bring the engine speed up slowly to preserve the belts and reduce stress on all components.

I am sure this is the fix for your trouble. If there is anything else or if I missed the ball, please let me know and we will go further.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Those units are self adjusting. No way to adjust it. It sounds like you have a bad idler pulley or a bad spindle bearings, which would cause the pulleys to be out of alignment.

Where Are The Greasing Points


Grease points on your mower should include the inside of the front wheels, and steering on both sides near the tires. Depending on the type of deck spindles and bearings you may have a few points on the deck to grease.

I hope this helps.

I own a 42" Troy Bilt zero turn. The PTO switch


What the problem is (im not sure if they are called this) but the deck pulley brakes are worn out.
Basically if you look under the rider frame side (on top of the deck). There are on each side for each spindle pulley a flat metal tab. On the underside of that is just like a brake on your car. So when you raise the deck the pulley brakes hit the top of the pulleys and stop them from spinning. Which cause the blades to stop spinnign. There are probably turning at 10% of there normal speed. If that sound like what its doing check the brakes.
They are a replaceable part. Sorry I just cant remember exactly what they are called. Over the years they just wear out like a set of brake pads on your car. And the mower cuts and just work fine. Thats where I would start. When they wear out, the friction material is gone. Best Reguards, Premium FixYa Support

I have a troy bilt riding lawn mover, it cuts the grass uneven, changed blades thinking it was the problem, but it wasn't. do they have any kind of adjustments for the blades?


The best bet is to work on the deck with it removed from the tractor. You may find the bearings are out in one of the spindles. Quite often someone hits something and the deck housing is bent where the spindle bolts to it. Use a tape measure and measure the distance from the deck to the blade. Compare the two spindles (3 if it's 3 blades) . You'll find one spindle is tilted so that it is not 90 degree to the deck. What I do is once I've located the offending spindle, and which direction it is tilted, I remove the blade, slide a piece of pipe about 4' long over the spindle (usually 1-1/2 or 2" pipe) so it clears the hub and bend it. Then I reinstall the blade and measure it again.
