How can I raise the mower deck on my Troy-Bilt Bronco 13YX78KS011? On the highest setting (5)it mows very short. After mowing only once on setting (3) the pulley has ground a groove on the adjustment

We have only had the mower less than 5 months. Bought from Lowes as a returned mower. We have changed the deck belt at least 2 times.

I hope you have a warranty.. I did have a mower that I had to removes some shims from between the engine and the frame to keep the belt from being misaligned. but of course that has nothing to do with the deck height.

many of these units use the starter motor as the generator to re-charge battery. check voltage regulator & wiring.

SOURCE: Swisher 60 deck belt breaks after mowing about 15 minutes.

Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. The belt is snapping clean. You are correct in your assessment to what the problem might be. We checked all the above and did not correct problem. We put three washers on top of small idler pulley to bring it down and better align routing. Bought heavier belt at auto parts. Believe the bolt head was touching belt where it routed throught to larger idler pulley."

SOURCE: I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting

There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

Troy Bilt zero turn Mustang Xp 50" deck height. My


raise the back as high as you like but unless you raise the front as well it will still cut short. If you want it higher and there appears there is no adjustment left you may have to re thread the adjusting screws to shorter dimensions or if it is on levers you may have to drill new holes further up the bars.

Troy Bilt XP self propelled mower


Normally an indication of poor air flow. Replace air filter. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaned to ensure choke is free to operate. Go real slow in tall grass, some mowers don't have the torque to do tall grass, only use 1/2 of the deck width and have side discharge open.

Need help on replacing drive/transmission belt on 42" Troy-bilt Bronco. Access under the battery box? Do I need to remove entire mowing deck?


I believe their is a plate between the seat and steering wheel. Unscrew the plate and you will see drive pullies, push in and lock brake, this should supply enough slack for you to reach under the seat remove old belt and install new. It is a real pain.If brake can not be locked you need someone to press it while you do the work. Removing the deck will really not help because you will not be able to reach transmission pulley under seat.

Own a Troy Bilt self-propelled model #12A-466-M011 for a year now. It worked great when first got it. Now it will not clear the grass underneath so cuts off every 15 feet and have to manually clear grass...


I had the same problem with my Troy-Bilt self propelled lawn mower. You have to use the grass catcher if your grass is high. Also, I mowed wet grass and it made my belt slip off the pulley and created a new problem, somowing wet grass is definitely not a good idea.
