SOURCE: replacing the blades on a craftsman dyt 4000

Not a hard job, but you will need a couple of tools. First, you will need a wrench that fits the nut that is holding the blade on. I prefer a closed end wrench, but an open end will do. Second, you will need a blade changing tool. The brand name is called a Blade Hog. It attaches to the deck and holds the blade in place so you can turn the nut. Raise the deck as high as it will go, attach the Blade Hog, and then loosen and remove the nut. Be sure and pay attention to which side is up on the old blade and put the new one on in the same manner.

hope this helps,

SOURCE: Will crank but won't fire

To run, the engine needs fuel/air mix, compression, and a spark. See if you can narrow your problem down to one of these. Remove the plug, then connect the plug wire and set (or carefully hold) the base of the plug against the cylinder head. Crank the engine and see if there is a spark. If not, the problem is in the ignition system.
If you see a spark, replace the spark plug. Remove the air filter and pour about a tablespoon of gasoline down the carburetor throat. Crank the engine, being careful to stay away from the carburetor in case it backfires. If the engine fires and runs, then it probably is not getting gas (fuel system problem), or not getting enough gas (carburetor or choke problem).
Compression problems are less common, unless the engine has been abused somehow. You can check for compression with a compression gage. Remove the spark plug, install the compression gage in the spark plug hole, then crank the engine with the throttle open and the choke off. If you get at least 60 or 70 psi when you do this test, the compression is probably not the problem.

SOURCE: I can't find a grass catcher attachment for my

Hello, I did finally locate your model number in my Electrolux Home Products catalog, HOWEVER, the bag is no longer manufactured and as near as I can tell, there are no longer any available to purchase. You can still buy the frame and hard plastic top but no bag.

This is a 1995 model so this is not an uncommon thing.

I can look up the part numbers of the available items for you if you want them.

Sorry I could not present you with better news.

SOURCE: how does the grass catcher attach to the L100 ride

Here's the info for your problem. Just in case you didn't realize, you entered your question under the label of PC Desktops. Your problem has nothing to do with a computer. Click here for the website with your info on it. If the link doesn't take you to the website with the instructions and pictures then try this one and enter the info of your lawn tractor until you reach the page with the "how-to" of doing the bagger. johndeere.com Choose operator's manual OMM158914, then scroll down to Installing, and choose Installing Lower Discharge Chute, or choose Upper Bagger Discharge Chute; whichever one works best for you. I hope this is the material you were looking for and that it helps you resolve your problems.

your valves might be sticking due to old gas when you had some or the little rod clutch rod to the carb is disconnected this is just to choke it before it dies out.
I sugest that you clean out the carb out with carb cleaner and also clean the valves.

Grass catcher


What I would do Wayne is contact Ariens through the web site or at their dealership and see if one may be placed on your mower. Each manufacturer has their own set up for grass catchers, so I have not seen one the fits all. If you don't get anywhere Wayne, think about buying a lawn sweeper that is attached the the rear of you mower. If you purchase a good one, you will be very happy with it's performance. I hope that helps you out in some manner.

Wierd grass catcher problem


There are a couple of causes for this. Is the blade height the same on the new mower? Higher blade height could cause a lot of the grass to be blown out from under the deck, and not into the catcher chute.

On the trailing edge of the mower blades is a small 'wing' for lack of a better term. There are two types of blades, mulching blades that have a lower 'wing', while catcher blades that have a slightly higher 'wing' but it makes a difference.

If the season has been hot lately, the grass may not be growing as fast, hence less clippings, and less dense grass could also cause this.

How do I install the grass collector


Assuming that you have the correct grass catcher..... Install the discharge deflector at the deck discharge. This is the smaller piece that bends 90 degrees. It will slide into clips on the deck when you have the deck's plastic deflector raised up. Next, install the bagging assembly. It's pretty straightforward. Lastly, install the plastic chute (tube). Push it in the grass catcher (bagger) opening, and then pivot it over the deflector and down onto it to seat it. Connect the straps.

Best regards, --W/D--
