Blades will not turn on lawn mower


You haven't given enough information of the problem. The blades themselves wont turn when you try to spin them by hand or they wont turn when you engage them with the lever or the switch?

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

I cannot get any speed from my MTD/Yardman riding lawnmower. I have change the belts. It will engage But just will NOT go very fast. It is a sem-automatic.


Your yardman mower is a hydrostatic model which uses a small hydraulic pump to turn a hydraulic drive motor.Check there is sufficient oil in the transmission. Check the forward/reverse lever travel, and adjust as needed to increase the "throw" to move the swashplate in the hydraulic motor.

I have an older mtd yard machine that throws the belt whenever the engine is started. It appears that the belt is very tight the blades turn free when the belt is not connected so they are not locked up....


I had an MTD riding mower, when the mower started the belt should not have been engaging the blade spindle. They're is a clutch lever which goes down to a simple spring tensioner which engages the blade. You may have the tensioner misaligned which will allow the belt to be desheaved. My old manual told me to hold a straight edge along the engine pulley and the driven pulley, like on a table saw. There should be some deflection in the belt, 1/2" over two feet.

Be sure the belt is the correct size and is routed correctly.

If you are not sure, you can download a manual here:
