Dont understand your question ... get the belt ... it was designed to fit ... there are probably at least three pulleys. put the belt around the motor pulley and the trans pulley then figure out how the clutch or tensioner pulley interact with it.

Riding mower won't go nowhere it's got drive belt on but won't drive


Is it a hydro? check the release lever some times i forget too. If its gears then try different gear and check that the belt is engaging fully if the clutch spring broke your pedal shouldn't push back up.

While mowing the yard, the mower went dead. I tried to recrank it and it won't crank. The gas pedal goes straight to the floor and doesn't work to crank the mower. I do not know anything about mowers and don't know where the problem could be. Can someone help?

I have a cub cadet mower and it has the hydrostat trans drive and I hit a tree root in the yard and the tractor quit moving. The mower deck still runs so is there a belt broken or what could be wrong?


There are two belts - the main drive belt from the engine to the hydrostatic transmission, and the mower belt that runs from the engine to the mower deck. Sounds like the main drive belt broke or came off. It's not an easy job to replace because it's up against the chassis underneath, and you usually have to remove and replace some parts to get at it. Take a look under there, see if the belt's gone, and decide if you want to tackle it or have a shop do it.
