Sounds to me like the belt is too tight and not grabbing, the squealing noise is the sound of motor pulley spinning on the belt. This could also happen if belt is worn out. I'd try adjusting the belt. Hope this helps.

Blade is turning wrong way


The blade drive belt on your MTD edger makes a half twist in its pattern. When the belt was installed, it was twisted the wrong direction. Remove the belt from the blade pulley and reinstall with it twisted the other direction. Before you start the edger again, visually inspect the belt and make sure it is not touching anything other than the pulleys.
Good luck!

I have an older Craftsman's Table Saw. I use it for a few minutes an then it looses its torque and can't saw no matter the thickness of the wood. Is it the motor?


Is it with belts connecting from motor to blade , or is it direct drive ( like in a circular saw) ? Belts do wear and need to be tightened or replaced. If it is direct drive, is could be the motor contact brushes on the armature that are burned or worn. They will allow the motor to run but not give the power when called for. Brushes are usuall y accessible from the outside of the motor from small plastic (bakelite) screw caps (2 of them). Finallt, it could be the blade lock nut and tension washer. This you will know because the blade will begin to snow and not cut the material, yet the motor sounds as if it is running standard speed.

Blades do not seem to have enough rpm at full trottle it leaves grass standing, have replaced all belts,tension spring,deck bearings,deck pullys,mule drive and front pto. new blades. what have i missed....


Are your blades rotating the right direction? Check to make sure that the blades are leading with the cutting edge as they spin. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence or anything, but on occasion we all goof on something, and I've actually had a few people bring me mowers that acted exactly like this, and I found that the blades were upside down, or they had the belt routed incorrectly and they were spinning the wrong direction.

Replacing the belt on a Murray Riding Lawnmower.


The simplest way, is to take hold the belt, with the tension from the engine pully/clutch mechanism, then to follow the shape around the rest of the cutter mechanism. (You don't have to worry which direction the belt travels,)
Bearing in mind, the tensioner direction.
Then, you will see the correct route, very quickly:)
Hope you can manage, with that.

Need to know what size and hoe to change belt for yardman 46" cutting deck for blade model # 13a0771h055


If you are missing the manual, for the said model,
I have found that the simplest way, of figuring out the correct route for the belt, is to remove the deck, and hold the replacement belt above the mechanism, with the tension from the engine end.
Then 'mock up' the replacing proceedure, bearing in mind the correct direction the tensioner/s, move in.
Then it's not too difficult to figure it out the correct route.
Hope that's clear enough, good luck.

BLADE DRIVE BELT ADJUSTMENT


Well, most riding mowers have a "pully idler", meaning once you have the belt on there (and it is the RIGHT size), the idler automatically gives the belt tension when you engage it (in fact, the idler pully is what IS engaged when you engage the belly mower).

Couple things to check (super simple):

The Belt. Look to see if she is wore smooth out.
Sometimes....they WILL stretch on you, instead of busting/coming apart, and give you noise (when she is engaged, but wore out enough to flop around a little)

The Deck Blade Bearings. Straight away, that is what it sounds like, or bent blades.

Check your Blade Bearings (super simple):
1. Pick up your deck to the highest high setting (mower off, just sitting).
2. Reach under, and grab your mower blade (do this for both sides), and TILT your blade UP (meaning, don't LIFT the blade straight up).
Seriously, jiggle it at a TILT. If you feel some slack in the bearing, the bearing IS shot. Straight up and down is most of the time OK, IF it is VERY little play on your blade bearings. As you do it, look at your belt pulley directly on top, if you see that pully bobbing....

However, if you grab one side of the blade only, then tilt the blade up, and she moves.....
Bearings need replaced, both the upper AND lower bearings PER blade.

They are not hard to replace, and not expensive either! (Though unfortunately, most are "sealed" junk nowadays!)

Bad Bearings show up (make themselves known) in only a few ways: Tons of Noise (grinding, squealing) & Vibration.

Go check them thar Bearings!

Two drive configurations


Direct-Drive Motors are linked directly to the blade and transfer all of the motor’s power to the blade. Belt-Drive Motors have a belt that transfers power from the motor to the blade. In belt drive systems, the motor can be offset away from sawdust generated during operation, causing the motor last longer. Belt drive systems require slightly more preventive maintenance than direct drive systems. So you'll need to check the belts for wear and proper tension periodically.
