Question about Garden

2 Answers

I have a Troy-Bilt riding mower. The belt that makes the mower move in forward and reverse is very loose, like it would need to go around another pully. I can't see where it has one for it to go around. It does not move in forward or reverse when the clutch is let out. Do you think I lost a pully somewhere or does the engine move to adjust the belt?

You may have lost an idler pulley or it has come off its normal route. The belt may be stretched out and need to be replaced.
You can go to www.precisionope.com and find an Ilustrated parts look up to see how it is on there. This model may be found under Troybilt or MTD.

Install new drive belts and mower still wont move forward or reverse.


Belts dont move mower back and forth, there is a bar that engage the hidrolic transfer, perhaps you move it and you have not tracking power, or, there are a series of rods that actuate the hidrolic, coud be that any of those rods came undone, if any of these to scenarios is happening to you, consider have the hidrolics chec out.
Good luck to you.

Need to put a new belt on the rear of the Troy-Bilt LTX 1842


First buy proper belt... Next note how old belt is warped around the pulleys, take a picture or draw a diagram... Remove all covers off deck pulleys, and guards to expose belt completely... Pull and stretch belt off one of the idler pulleys, once one is off the rest will slide off... Reverse procedure for installation... Note: grease all nipple fittings, bearing and shafts to avoid seizing of bearings or bushings.

Mower slips in and out of forward gear but rides perfect in reverse;What do I need to adjust?


Reverse is a different gear set than forward gears. Sounds like forward gear set has a broken tooth. Not an easy fix.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Troy Bilt ride-on mower will not move in either fwd or reverse


Is the parking brake on? Or if it's a hydrostatic (automatic) there is a release lever to push the unit around when it isn't running. Most of those releases are on the back of the machine, and you just push it in for drive and pull it out to push.
