Yard works 4.5hp 42" cut lawn tractor cuts fine when mower deck is up on 4, but when it is lowered it cuts out and won't cut the grass.


4.5 hp will not power a 42 inch deck any way you cut it quite likely the blades need sharpened real bad .motor needs to run fast when tryng to cut also as that throws the grass out of the deck

I have a mastercraft ride on lawn mower .... model # 13A0678G515....the drive belt broke and there are no numbers left on it.......i got the mowerwhen i purchased the property and have no manual .....it...


For parts, 18006681238 is a toll free number (at least in Canada) to MTD (who made this model for Mastercraft). The part number is 754-0371A for V-belt 'B' x 74.04. I got this from the original manual. The phone number came from under the seat of my ride on mower.....yeah, it's the same model. I bought mine in 1999.


Hope this helps.....

Check that the cutting tip of the blade that is cutting lower is not bent down. Also park the mower on a level surface and lower the deck and check the gap under the front of the deck is even. If not, there are levelling adjustments on the top of one side of the deck. Regards Phil

My tractor cuts uneven when i am cutting my yard


Check your blades common problem with uneven cut is a bent blade. Next find a level spot like a padio and take a torpedo level place it on the front center side to side not front to rear. On one side or the other you should see a J(jay) bolt with a nut tighten to raise losen to lower.

The mower is not cutting even. we changed the blades and leveled the deck but can not seem to fix the problem


Everything sounds and looks good but the cut is uneven. I would think the only possibilities are a freewheeling blade, or an upside down blade. Neither situation is rare. If neither of those is possible I think I would set the whole thing up on jack stands and make sure nothing is going akilter in the mechanism which raises and lowers the deck, one side could be hung up.

Left side blade cuts about an inch lower than right side , the left 21" when cutting is about an inch lower than the right 21", looks terrible, checked tire pressure and that was not the problem


measure the height of cut from the ground to the bottom of the deck all the way around, if it is the same the blade or bearing housing is at fault, if it is lower on the left look for a bent or broken mount from the deck to the tractor on that side.

I need the battery size for a 2005 21hp 42" cut craftsman rider


Most Lawn and Garden batteries are the came size, if you are referring to amp rating I like to go on the larger side I believe you can get between 175 to 425 cca (cold cranking amp) batteries. On a 21 hp I like to stay no lower than 275. I have tried lower amp batteries and sometimes on start I get a hesitation.
