I have a troy bilt pony and the drive belt to engage to blades keeps coming off. I have replaced the belt and the pully what else could it be?


well i would take a long look at the spring which holds the tension pulley in place. if it is weak, or not connected correctly, there will be inadequate tension and the belt can come off. I would also take a look at whatever fasteners keep the deck in place as if it is not kept to the rear, there again will be too much play in the deck belt.

Replaced deck belt and it keeps coming off,whats wrong?


The belt tensioners on top of the deck need adjusted, or you make have to adjust the pulleys to tighten the belt. Sometimes if you have the deck lowered to low to the ground, uneven terain can cause that. If you have everything adjusted correctly, simply raise the deck another notch and mow.

Why does the drive belt keep coming off?


This is usually caused by a stretched belt or a broken or disconnected bracket causing the deck to go out of alignment. Also check to insure your belt guides are in place (usually close to the pulley on the deck) they assist in keeping the belt in the groove, there should be two, close to the pulley.

Deck Belt keeps coming off


I assume you mean the engine pulley by "front pulley"? Is the belt guide still in place? It bolts to the side of the frame and runs out to the engine pulley to hold the belt on when it's disengaged. Sound like your's may be missing/broken off
