Question about Craftsman 22 in Precision Cut Lawn Mower Blade

1 Answer

I changed the blade, and now it won't start!

I have a mulching craftsman self propelled mower. We turned it on its side to change the blade, and I'm not sure what happened, but the cord is getting hung up and won't pull right.

Did you replace the blade with a heavier blade, or an identical one? If the pull cord won't pull, it's usually either the blade or the blade shaft causing the problem. Try oiling the shaft and making sure nothing is obstructing the blade from turning.

If you have a pair of heavy gloves, try turning the blade by hand and see if it moves. Squirt some oil onto the shaft where it meets the mower and try turning it again.

Poulan self propelled 22in blade hit a rock broke tip of blade starts then stalls


Did you bend the crankshaft. To check this out remove spark plug wire and tip mower on it's side and turn blade by hand and watch the shaft the blade is fastened on to. There should be no wiggle motion what so ever and if there is it may be bent causing the engine to not operate properly.

How does the govener and carb linkage work on a Troy-Bilt 2005 800 Series (839) self propelled mower


Have you changed springs? Likely the correct components are there unless you have changed it. Does it run properly and at correct rpm when not in tall grass? Check for proper throttle adjustment first. also check for obstructions (packed grass for instance) under the deck that could be impeding the blade. Lastly, if you have the discharge blocked with a mulch plug, remove the plug. let the tall grass discharge. then run over it again and mulch it.

If the blade control is disengaged, it will not start, engage control. Also check spark plug is connected.

My 21: self propelled yardworks lawnmower leaves a strip of grass about one thiird from the left hand side of the mower when i mulch with it. When I bag it works good.


I'd check your blade and see if it needs sharpening. The mulching mowers need to cut then vacuum the grass up and then cut it again. They must be properly sharpened for this process to work properly.

Looking for 22" blade for a Poulan - PO550N22SH - PN 961120080 - where can I buy a lawnmower blade? Can find the number on the internet, but can't find a dealer that sells this product.


Your Poulan Pro mower is made by American Yard Products and the parts will interchange directly with Craftsman 22" mowers. You should be able to find a replacement at your local Sears store. All of these part #s are also 22" AYP blades:
AYP #'s
406713
192682
157101
335256
114886
141114
Rotary #15-6236
Oregon #
95-043
95-042
95-055
95-023
95-021
95-602
The different #'s should all fit. Some of them are bagging style blades (high lift) while others are designed to mulch.
Online sources will include www.searspartsdirect.com and www.amazon.com

Good Luck!

Craftsman 6.75hp self propelled mower starts and turns off


I think that this is a 4stroke engine and runs on neat petrol.Have you been putting oil in with the petrol like a 2 stroke engine needs because this would account for the smoking.If not the check that you havn't overfilled the gearbox oil.

Can a mulching blade work in a non-mulching mower?


True Mulching mowers have a specific deck design to them, but I would say yes to your question.It's been quite a few years, but I have done this little conversion myself - replace regular blade with a mulching blade. Just make sure the mulch blade does fit your mower. Also, use something substantial in terms of strength to close the discharge opening. There can be a good deal of force placed at the opening from flying debris. You'll also want to make the cover removable, so you can mow damp grass without the cover.

What is the difference in a regular blade and a mulching blade?


A regular blade has a straight cutting edge, a mulching blade is bent to have a high and low cutting edge. Even if you have a mulching blade on, if the grass is too high or wet or you're cutting too low, it won't do a good job and may require a second pass.Raising your cutting height can help. Hope this helps. Dwain
