Tucomse moer 5.5 Won't speed up when cutting tall grass.


These push-mowers have a limited power, when you hit tall grass there is much more resistance on the blades. Even higher power riding mowers can stall on tall grass.

Sounds like you installed the blades backwards, so the blunt edge of the blades are hitting the tall grass. This would cause the engine to bog down and almost die.
When replacing blades, always note the direction of the cutting edge. If possible, take a digital photograph of the old blades so you can refer to the picture so you can be sure of the direction.
If you go to Sears.com and search your model number, you should be able to find an owners manual that tells you how to install the blades.

Replace stripped gear


This sounds to me like a simple governor issue, and to be more precise a tensions spring. Along with the the linkage rod from the governor arm to the carburetor should be a small spring as well, check it and make sure it hasn't come loose or even fallen completely off. This spring works to make the govorner transitions slower and smooth and eliminates bouncing back and forth of the gov. I hope this helps.

Have you been mowing high grass, and how long has the belt been on? if you have mowed tall grass or belt is older than 2 years old it needs replaced, most don't realize how much a belt stretches from mowing tall grass. I hope this has been helpful.

My briggs and stratton twin cylinder engine runs good until I try to mow with it. The engine dies down and will cut off unless I disengage the mower.


If you are cutting to much grass this can happen or if the throttle control is not in fast speed (rabbit). If it is in slow speed (turtle) it will tend to die down in tall grass or wet grass. Good Luck...

Why does grass get hung up in the chute for a rear debagger?


Typically, wet grass or tall grass will get caught. Mow only when dry and make sure your blades are sharp. Mow with the engine at full speed [VERY IMPORTANT] adjust your ground speed by using the proper gear for your conditions. With the engine at full throttle, choose a lower gear when cutting higher grass. Make sure the air outlet of the rear bagger is unobstructed. It has to be able to breathe.

I trust you will find use of these techniques will lessen the clogging rate you are experiencing.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

I have an early-2000s Troy Bilt Bronco, 42 inch deck, 18hp Briggs Inotek engine, hydrostatic drive. It broke or threw a drive belt (not for the mower deck, but a transmission belt). How to you go about...


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?
