Hi,
Check the tensioner to see if it is placing proper pressure on the belt and holding it tight enough...also check the pulley alingment... if one is out of alingment it will eat belts...also check that they all spinn freely and there are no bad bearings...

I have a huskee lt 4200. I keep buying deck belts for it but it keeps eating them up. The tensioner pulley is engaging but the belt flaps around real bad. Ive replaced cable. Caint figure it out.


Clay it may be time to replace the pulleys,including the engine pulley, check all bearings and blade spindles for wear and free movement and if the tensioner is on an arm lube the arm so it move freely.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does my Troy Bilt Pony Mower deck keep running after it is disengaged


-The belt is too tight. It should be free when the engine is running.
-Adjust it. It'll take care the problem. (I'll say it'll need about 3/4" to 1 1/2 clearance)

Good luck

My MTD riding lawnmower is burning thru the new belts I just purchased.The new belts are 954-0371A which replaces 754-0371A. The old style belt lasted 5 years. Even before engaging the clutch, the belt...


My idea is not about the belts, but is about the deck. If the tensioning mechanism on the deck is getting stuck in an intermittant position than the belt may be just tight enough to turn blades while slipping through the pulleys, this may cause enough friction to start melting your belts. If this is the case you will have to remove your mower deck and see what is preventing the mechanism from functioning properly.

I have a troy bilt riding lawn mower and I followed the diagram on replacing the deck belt and it seems to keep rubbing something and burning the belt to smithereens. this has happened twice. have a brand...


Depending on which side of the belt is being rubbed is where I looked. If it is rubbing on the inside, I would suspect one of the blade being bound up and not turning.

If it is on the outside I would suspect something to do with the shield.

I need a belt diagram for a ranch king king plus also i need to know the size for the main drive belt


Ranch King is a brand name of the manufacturer MTD.

Product manuals with part blow-up diagrams are available from MTD's web site,
http://www.mtdproducts.com/
Models are identified from the model number printed on a label under the mower seat.
The PTO and deck drive belts are shown on one diagram and the transmission drive belt is shown on another. The Form number on my printed Operator's Manual is 770-10526A (22HP, 46in cut) for Hydrostatic 817/818 models.

Parts can be ordered directly from MTD or other distributors on the web.

It is my experience that original brand name MTD belts work best.

The 22HP, 46" mower deck Ranch King Pro has 3 belts:

The drive belt which runs from the engine pulley back to the hydro drive unit to provide over-the-ground propulsion is part #754-0349.

A mower has either an electric PTO or a manual PTO, not both.

The electric PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs around the electric clutch on the engine shaft (activated by electric switch, not the mechanical hand lever that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0476 for the 46" deck.

The manual PTO belt the provides power to the blade deck (runs off the pulley on the engine shaft (activated the mechanical hand lever to the left of the steering wheel that engages the mower deck) is p/n 754-0228 for the 46" deck.

The deck belt that goes around the 3 blade spindle assemblies on the mower deck, to drive the grass cutting blades is p/n 754-0349

In my experience, the PTO belt lasts about half a season, the other belts break about every other season when mowing 4 acres weekly.
