Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

MTD 705 drive to mower deck became intermittent then stopped completely. Drive belts perfect and engine running and driving normally. Presumably some form of clutch drive to mower deck is burnt out? Easily repairable by novice? The cutting blades turn OK by hand and are not jammed in any way and belts in perfect condition.

Yes, unfortunately, it's the clutch mechanism.If the machine has seen hard work for prolonged periods of time, or if it is three years old or over.
Apparently, it's 'normal'.
The most unfortunate thing is though, that they're damned expensive!
(Depending on what country you are in).
Not the best news I know, but that your 'fixya'
Good luck finding a cheap new one.

There are two belts, one for the deck and one for the main drive. The main drive belt can be seen on the upper pulley under the engine. Check to see if it has slipped or broken.

My MTD riding mower is losing power to the rear wheels when pulling an incline. It will come to a complete stop. the engine RPM and blade rotaion do not seam effected. What am I over looking?


normally sign of a failing hydrostatic transmission. if your mower has one, start looking for a new one, mower that is as a new tranny will cost more than a new mower.

I need a belt diagram for a ranch king king plus also i need to know the size for the main drive belt


Ranch King is a brand name of the manufacturer MTD.

Product manuals with part blow-up diagrams are available from MTD's web site,
http://www.mtdproducts.com/
Models are identified from the model number printed on a label under the mower seat.
The PTO and deck drive belts are shown on one diagram and the transmission drive belt is shown on another. The Form number on my printed Operator's Manual is 770-10526A (22HP, 46in cut) for Hydrostatic 817/818 models.

Parts can be ordered directly from MTD or other distributors on the web.

It is my experience that original brand name MTD belts work best.

The 22HP, 46" mower deck Ranch King Pro has 3 belts:

The drive belt which runs from the engine pulley back to the hydro drive unit to provide over-the-ground propulsion is part #754-0349.

A mower has either an electric PTO or a manual PTO, not both.

The electric PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs around the electric clutch on the engine shaft (activated by electric switch, not the mechanical hand lever that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0476 for the 46" deck.

The manual PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs off the pulley on the engine shaft (activated the mechanical hand lever to the left of the steering wheel that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0228 for the 46" deck.

The deck belt that goes around the 3 blade spindle assemblies on the mower deck, to drive the grass cutting blades is p/n 754-0349

In my experience, the PTO belt lasts about half a season, the other belts break about every other season when mowing 4 acres weekly.

When deck is lowered blades do not engage


Is the belt in place that drives the blades?
Is the belt at the correct tension?
With the mower engine off.....try to turn each pulley the belt drives and on the mower deck with the mower in up position and or down....do they turn a little......this is to check for a seized bearing on one of the pulleys also look under the deck for something stuck........ jamming a blade.
Also check for the mower belt safety system (which stops the blades quickly when disengaging them) that may be stuck in stop mode.
With the mower engine running.....have some one engage the blades while you look under at the belt system....is the engine driving the belt.....is the belt driving the blades.
DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING......MOVING OR STOPPED while the engine is trying to drive the blades.

Mower stopped moving


If this is a manual transmission, check the drive belt from the engine back to the transmission. With the clutch pedal up (engaged) there should be no slack in the belt.

If it is a hydrostatic drive, check the drive belt and make sure it is tight. Check the transmission fluid level and make sure it is full. Refer to your owners manual as it will describe the fluid check proceedure.
Good luck, let me know.
