Question about Toro Garden
I have a toro riding mower and I am continuously having to replace deck belts because the lawn mower keeps shredding them. I have tried different kinds of belts. Its to the point its costing a lot of money and becoming a headache. I know people talk about adjusting the pulleys but I do not see any way of being able to adjust them. They have always been off. Please tell me what I can do because I cannot afford replacing it with a new mower or for someone to repair it.

I have the exact same model MTD tractor with same problem. It began when the bolt that extends through the idler arm assembly broke and subsequently damaged the pulley. Upon examination of the broken bolt, I found that the threaded end that extends below the deck is significantly smaller that the rest of the bolt. I got a larger bolt with the same size threads, bored out the hole through the deck and it made the whole idler assembly much stronger. the deck still has some vibration and some unusual belt harmonics, but it appears to be working. Compared to most other tractors of this size, this deck is very complicated.

Your mower should have a lever on it that you move to raise or lower your deck. The lever will normally have the slots that it locks into numbered like the trans gears if yours is not automatic.

SOURCE: 42" deck belt shredding
One of your pulleys is frozen and the belt is just going around it without it turning. Pull the belt out, remember where it goes, and find the pulley that is frozen. Get it replaced. Hope this helps.
