What will cause blades on J.Deere G100 mower to Freely turn by hand without causing Spindles or belt to turn even though Bolts are still tight and when installed Blade turned only if spindle turned


Do Ray:
If the blade engagement lever is in the disengaged position, the belt will be loose, allowing you to turn the blades by hand. If you place the blade engagement lever in the engaged position (with the motor off) it will be hard to turn the blades because of the tension on the belt. If the blades are still easy to turn with the blade engagement lever in the engaged position, you need to replace the blade drive belt!

Blades keep running in all gears on my mtd 420/38


Assuming you have put the blade drive lever into 'disengage' check the blade drive belt tension. With blade disengaged, belt should have significant slack. You may need to adjust the control cable, adjustment is usually on the mower deck; or you may have some debris on the deck preventing the pully to release belt tension

Blades will not engage


when you actuate the "engage blade" lever, two things may occur,
First, a mechanical action, a spring moves to put tension onto the belt.
Second; at the end of its run, actuate a switch (PTF switch) to engage the clutch that moves the pulleys that consequentially move the blades.
if the tensioner is not moving , check if spring has come lose, undone or broken, (more likely in your case) or check the PTF switch.
any other assistance, contact me, good luck.

Blades not disengaging


is the blade engagement system a lever or a switch?
If a lever , then look on the deck where the pulley applies tension to the drive belt for a sticking point. the cable from the lever will be attached to it and it should move smoothly in and out of drive position. sounds like the pulley is not retracting when cable is released. check for sticking of pulley arm or maybe a missing return to idle/off spring is broken or missing.
The deck should disengage as soon as the tension on the cable is removed.

if electric, the clutch itself is always getting power, so a swithc circuit fault is to be expected.

On my 42in cut hydro. Husqvarna, The mower will not disengage until the speed is reduced to a low idle


Before you do anything else check to make sure the blades are engaged on thier seat ( the star) and the blade bolts are tight.
If you have an electric PTO this does not apply to you.
After confirming that your blades are tight check the operation of the PTO cable and the pivot bracket by lowering the deck all the way. Laying on the ground on the discharge side of the mower you will be able to look at the components and see and touch whats not moving freely as you engage and disengage the PTO lever. Look for a stiff PTO cable, stiff pivot bracket, missing return spring, broken spindle brackets and broken deck bracket welds.
Of course you should never work on any mechanical device while it is running.

Craftsman riding mower blades won't disengage


This is too late, but for the next person: There is an extension spring around the cable attached to the blade engage/disengage lever.

On my tractor one end of the spring had the hook broken off or it. Because it is around the cable it is still in place but doesn't stretch when you engage the blade (so can't pull the pulley out and slacken the belt when you disengage).

The replacement is a few dollars and can be bought on ebay or Amazon.

Blade on John Deere L110 will not shut off


Check the cable that runs from the acuating lever to the tensioner pulley on your deck it could be broken or frayed. also check the plastic holder on the deck end of the pulley, it fits in a small groove in a brace on the deck and is held in place by a tractor pin. when they removed your deck to sharpen the blades they may not have re-connected it properly or the plastic holder may be broken and not allowing the proper tension on the cable. if your tractor is equipped with a PTO switch near the lever check the connections and the continuity of the switch...hope this helps.... ;-D
