Is the belt overly tight? My mower was doing that to, turned out the belt called for was 1" longer then the belts i was buying for it, making the belt really tight and it kept over heating from rubbing and failing. I would run it for a while then shut everything off and see if the belt is hot, also check that the bearing are not hot, could be friction somewhere causing the belt to heat up and fail.

SOURCE: Drive belt comes off the rear pulley.

Hi, this is a easy solution. on your drive pulley, there should be three belt keepers to keep the belt from coming off. ( belt keeper is a 1/4" dia. rod that goes over the pulley)

Without the model number, I couldn't tell you what belt goes on the ground drive. That 174883 is a 5/8 x 97" and is your deck drive belt. Your ground drive belt may just need replacing. They will wear thin and loosen up between the pulleys and cause the problems you're having. The old belt may still have the numbers on it.

SOURCE: G-110 deck belt keeps jumping off pulleys

check for a broken belt tension er or maybe grass clippings under belt area, check for a broken or loose pulley bearing, even a bent shaft on the deck.

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?

Posted on May 28, 2010

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."

Can you show me the correct diagram for the drive belt on a 44in Dixon zero turn mower


Hope this helps. Serpentine Blade Drive Belt
1 Lower the mower deck to its lowest position.
2 Route the serpentine blade drive belt (part number 6109) onto the V-pulleys located on the mower deck. One double pulley is located at the front of the deck near the center. The other two pulleys are located near each side of the deck. Route the belt around the outside -- the side toward the outer edge of the mower deck -- of each pulley. For the double pulley near the front of the deck, route the belt around the lower pulley (part number 6058) only. If pulleys are fitted with belt guards, work the belt in between the pulley and shield.
3 Push the idler pulley toward the center of the deck with your hand. The idler pulley (part number 6059) is the fourth pulley on the deck and is located near the rear of the deck. It is the only movable pulley on the deck. Wrap the belt around the side of the pulley nearest the edge of the deck. Release the idler pulley to place tension on the belt. No adjustment is necessary because the serpentine idler spring (part number 6065), located on the idler pulley, adjusts the belt to the correct tension.

When running the mower, it shuts off immediately when trying to engage blades(pto)


Hi Digger:
I've two possibles come to mind for you to check.
1) Engine OFF - Make sure that all of the blades and pulleys can turn freely.
2) Engine OFF - Double check belt routing. Move engage lever ON/Off and look at what movement happens. It may be that the belt is on the wrong side af a mounting flange and binds when engaged.
Cheerfuls.

Look under the the left foot rest,there is a belt installation diagram. It will show how to install the belt correctly. It is real simple to replace belt,but the belt must be installed on the pulleys,correctly or it will fail,every time. Sincerely,Brad Locke

How do I reattach the deck to my riding lawn mower


do you have a pto lever that tightens the belt? if so theres a bracket on top and in the back that holds the cabble but first you must attach the spring to the pulley that's on a arm that releases and tightens the belt, there is a hole on the arm closer to the pulley itself hook that up and pull with a little strength and put the end of the plastic of the cable in that bracket and with a carter key holds it in position and then try your lever then make sure nothing is rubbing or under a strain, hope this give you some idea of what to do

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

I have a Sears Garden Tractor with a 48" mower deck. By working in long, thick grass I broke the mower belt -- not the one that transmits power from the engine, but the belt that sits in a pulley on...


I believe that tensioner pully has to be loosend up and moved.
Here are the instructions for this.
  • Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.

  • 2

    Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.

  • 3

    Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.

  • 4

    Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.

  • 5

    Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.

  • 6

    Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.

  • 7

    Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.

  • 8

    Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.

  • 9

    Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.

    Another possibility, is a broken spring or a tight/ rusted idler pivot arm.
    with the engine off & the deck down, engage the pto & pull on the belt to see which pulley is the tensioner

    Belt has jumped out twice in spite of beltguards


    Check and make sure the beltguards are on tight. You want them close to the pulley so the belt will not fall off the pulley, but won't touch the pulley. Also when you engage PTO do it slowly.

    Good luck

    Broken belt


    This is actually pretty simple:

    Remove Pto guard on mower deck

    Stand mower up on back stands

    Pull the friction disc away from the drive disc

    slip new belt in between the friction disc and drive disc pushing all the way through

    release friction disc allowing to come back in contact with drive disc

    loop belt around engine pulley

    let mower back down

    route belt around mower pulley

    loosen guides on idler pulley

    route belt through idler pulley

    with engine off move pto lever to tighten mower belt

    adjust guides on idler pulley allowing 1/8" from belt

    tighten bolt on idler pulley

    release pto tension

    install mower pto guard

    and you should be ready to mow
