Question about Garden

1 Answer

I got a troybilt rider mower. I dont know anything about mowers. I got this from a neglected owner and the final thing that got him to sell. Was the battery charger was wrong and it blew the acid all over below the battery. Causing belt to get dmg and thin in spots. I dont know the belt name. But i took it to orielys auto. They had a belt same size and just a smuge thiner then one that was on. I put belt on the 3 dollys under the batter. Then put new batter in. And started it to mow. Now it cant make it backwards or forward over the small hill nxt to mower. It goes forward and backwards and everthing works. I think its the belts or dolly cause the cord from somewhere upfront comes to a dolly under the batter meeting the new cord i got. Remember i dont know anything. Havnt change oil or sparkplug or filter or anything. And the mower pretty rusty and ate paint all under the batter. I had to shave and rub rust off. Anyway here my info rider move very slow both directions. Got new 1 new belt under batter. Have done mantence yet. I got a troybilt rider mower. Model #13an77tg766 the seriel #1a047b80127 dom= 1/2007 17.5hp 42in blade thanks

There should be a second belt that goes from the engine to the transmission. This could either be slipping due to a mis-adjusted pulley or another bad belt.

SOURCE: cranks but won't start after we replaced one broken belt below deck

try different spark plugs. sometimes because they are new doesn't mean they are good. check the bottom of the old plugs for raw fuel.

SOURCE: disengaging blades when mowing completed

the cam plate that the tensioner pulley is mounted on that rotates back around to tighten the belt as the cable or rod is engaged is likely rusted and worn, there is a bushing in this pivot that can be removed and cleaned fairly easily with a abrasive wheel or pad and lubricated upon reassembly.

Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. Hope this helped Tim

My troybilt rider tb2246 cut off when I engage the blades and now it cuts off when I take my foot off brake. What's wrong? Heeeeelp

You likely have a bad seat (operator presence) switch. If you unplug the switch under the seat & jumper the terminals to the wiring harness and the mower runs, you'll need to replace the switch.

I want to know if i can get a an owners manual for my 2005 troy built push mower. it's model# 12AG839E711. Am i please able to get one?

You can try your model number on their website here. I am unable to get one for you because it requires the serial number of the machine. Input the model and serial number info and you may have it. A decal on the machine will include the serial number.
