SOURCE: Problem mowing my lawn.

I had the same problem and I already found those recommended solutions\ causes on the web:
1. The motor isn't on full throttle.
2. The blade is upside down.
3. The grass is too high when cutting it.
4. Overlap your cuts.

It helped my problem/ I hope it will help yours too!

Unless you adjusted the old belt when it started to stretch you either have 1. too long of belt or 2. (most likely) routed the wrong way in relation to the idler or "mow" lever pulley.

SOURCE: mows crooked

Riding mower decks are typically canted (offset) to avoid this issue. Double check to verify the new blades are the same length as the original blades.
Not all mower blades are created equally, universal replacement blades do not adhere to the same standards as OEM blades for size, hardness or many additional standards built into the OEM blades when the mower deck was designed.

SOURCE: Strange noise from deck of Toro LX426

The engine wont have an impact with the deck because its belt driven. It sure sounds like you have a bad set of spindle bearings,just turning it by hand you wont hear any noise it has to be going fast to hear it. The noise may be coming from your clutch instead of the deck,and it sounds like the deck. Have these things checked out.

Why does it bog down in grass maybe 6 " high?


The likely cause of this is that the grass is too high for your mowers deck. You should try just mowing about 1/3 of the blade at a time (if you can) until you reach your desired length, so if you grass is 6" high, only take off about 2" at first to reduce the stress on your mower. Set your mower deck to it's highest setting and give it a shot.

Also, be sure that the blades are sharp, and if you don't have mulching blades, you should get some! Grass this high will leave long clippings on the lawn which can suffocate the grass, mulching blades will chop up the clippings into smaller pieces, which is beneficial for your lawn!

Finally, make sure you aren't mowing wet grass. If you mow when the grass is wet the clippings can stick together and clump up under the mowing deck which will cause excess strain to the mower and maybe even cause it to shut off.

If none of this works, you may want to use a string trimmer to remove the first two inches of your grass and then continue mowing as normal!

Hope this helps! Happy Mowing!

How do I replace the blade belt on a ranch king lawn tractor?


Turn off the mower completely and clean out beneath the deck with a mower-cleaning tool to remove any built-up grass deposits. As debris collects inside the deck, the blades can't move freely and you'll have unusual patterns or unevenness forming in your lawn as a result. The mower-cleaning tool scrapes this debris off and restores the deck to proper function.
Measure the height of the mower deck with a ruler when the mower is on flat ground. The deck should be an equal distance from the ground on all sides to ensure an even grass cut. Adjust the leveling bolts on both sides of the deck as needed to readjust the height until it's even. If the mower hits something like a rock or a large stick while mowing, it may knock the deck off balance.
Inspect the deck for any dents or warping. Use a rubber mallet to carefully straighten any dents in the deck if the deck is metal. Plastic decks generally need replacement if they crack or warp.
Remove the deck for a more thorough inspection or cleaning as needed. Remove the grass catcher and take off the pins or mounting bolts holding the deck in place. Lower it to the ground and pull it out from under the mower. Unhook the cutting blade from the underside of the deck with a wrench and set it aside.
Sand off any rust with sandpaper and use the mallet or a hammer to eliminate any remaining dents or warps.
Reinstall the deck once any corrosion or dents are fixed.

Ariens Sport Zoom 1440 blades engage slowly


check that the grass has not bunched up around the spindle and shaft in such a fashion that it is jamming the blade to the deck and acting like a brake

Replaced blades on LT 1018 series and the blades are making a grinding noise. Followed operators manual instructions, purchased proper replacement parts. can you help?


You did what you were supposed to do, new blades, proper installation, and you were happy with what you thought was going to be a good outcome. The problem is that the new blades are hitting the deck area. Old blades ware down , your mower deck was bumping into stuff . Now you have to go under with a hammer and hammer back the dents where the blades are hitting. You did very well to start, but now to finish you have to do a little bit more. You will be mowing again in no time. Good luck.

Lots of smoke when I engaged stuck blades - now runs roughly


Most likely what you did was burn one or more spots on the belt. When the blades and belt stop turning, like in tall grass, the engine doesn't stop and will burn flat spots on the belt at the engine pulley. Every time the flat spot hits a pulley, it will jump and can set up a bad vibration. Run your hand around the sides of the belt or take it off and you will feel or see the thin spot(s) on it. Replace belt.
