SOURCE: I can not get my mower deck to turn when I pull

Your switch could be bad, or the voltage needed to turn on the PTO may not be up to par, or you may have a safety switch that won't let you start the PTO. I'd start with the safety switches.

How to change pto belt on club cadet 1046


To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1046 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ) You need a 5/8" socket to get the bolt out of the PTO pulley assy.(electric clutch). If you don't have an impact wrench take a spark plug out and push rope into the hole. This will bind the cylinder and keep the drive shaft from turning. Remove rope and replace plug when finished. Battery and/or spark plug wires should be removed for this process for safety.
The PTO may be stuck on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Lower engine pully on drive shaft, below pully "keys". It may be difficult to remove. Spray with "PB Blaster" or similar bolt loosener spray. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, make a diagram to help.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO pulley is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Torque bolt to 38-50 ft. lbs. using the rope meathod as described before. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again

I need a schematic for installing a cub cadet LT1050 drive belt. The old belt broke and I'm just not sure how to replace it. It appears you need to remove the clutch for the mower blade firat.


To replace a transmission drive belt on a Cub Cadet LT1045 or LT 1050 you need to remove the deck, preferably put the front wheels up on blocks or stands, unplug the PTO power (directly under the engine, which can be a pain ), use an impact wrench (you need the speed of the impact wrench because the engine will turn) and a 5/8" socket and reverse the bolt out of the PTO.

The PTO may be sized on there so you may want to tap it with a hammer and a block of wood carefully to release it. AT this point remove the 4 engine mount bolts from underneath (1/2" I believe). You will need to remove the left steering nut and arm to have access to the 4th bolt. Do not remove or replace engine mount bolts with impact wrench or bolts may break. Loosen old belt from tensioner pulley. Place pry bar under engine to slightly lift engine and move aft to expose belt from pulley and remove from pulley. Remove old belt from engine pulley first, transmission pulley last. Remember how belt goes around pulleys before doing so, draw a map if needed.

You'll need to put the belt on the transmission pulley first then thread the belt up to the engine pulley. Carefully push engine back into place and exhaust pipes into forward muffler will take some patience. Bolt engine back on being careful not to over tighten bolts. Place steering arm and nut back in place. Thread your belt back through the pulleys and tensioner (make sure your spring is strong enough to tension the belt or buy a new one).

The PTO is "keyed" on the shaft. Replace bolt and washer. Put your deck back on and you're ready to mow again. Give yourself an hour for this one.

I have a 1040 series tractor when the PTO is not engaged belt comes off pulleys because so loose. Tractor purchased April 2010 only has 12 hours on it


You have 2 options for this repair:

Option1. Your Cub Cadet comes with a 1 year warranty. Go to www.cubcadet.com to find your nearest servicing dealer. Do not take it back to the store you bought it from, unless they have an on-site repair shop AND will honor the Cub Cadet warranty.

Option 2. The belt guide(s) are either missing or mis-positioned. There should be several guide pins that stick down from the chassis and should be positioned very close (within 1/4") of the PTO drive pulley and the PTO driven pulleys. All these pins make sure that the belt stays close to the pulleys when disengaged. The belt is supposed to be pretty loose when disengaged, but the guid pins will keep it on its track. You can also go to www.partstree.com and look up the illustrated parts listing for your exact tractor. Sometimes the pictures will be detailed enough to show you where the guides are.

Good Luck!

Check your mower deck spindles and belt. If belt is slipping at all the PTO will not engage.

Belt keep coming off cub cadet 1042, all parts on deck have been replaced with new parts & still the belt comes off every time


my cub cadet used to throw the cutter belt too....till i took the drastic step of adding a bit more tension to the belt. this was achieved by drilling another hole on either side of the chassis about 1 3/4 inches to the rearward of the machine and moving the lift arms to the new holes. Viola, more belt tension, and furthermore there is now no interference between the tensioner and the rearmost run of the belt.

Cub cadet lt 1018 blade will not engage when i pull knob up


It sounds like the PTO is not engaging. This is the pulley on the bottom of the crankshaft and the belt for the deck goes around. It may be time to buy a new electric PTO to solve this problem.
Go to www.precisionope.com. and put your information in. you should find a part number you need there.
