My helper was mowing with my Honda push mower.. The handle started shaking.. a lot.. It will start up at first pull but is not cutting well. The blade is turning but the mower is vibrating so much it bothers you hands to mow. The blade is not hitting anything and nothing in wound up around the blade.. What else could cause this problem

It sounds like the blade may have hit some thing hard .
You say the blade is turning is it turning level or is it sort of swaying as you may have ofset the drive pin.
Worst case.. new mower as it can cost a lot of money to repair drive
I know as i have done the same thing a few years ago

How to start it


      Stand behind the lawn mower. Use one hand to hold the engine stop lever in the operating position. Use the other hand to hold the recoil starter handle. Slowly pull the recoil starter handle until resistance is felt, then pull quickly to start the push mower engine.

My 22" MTD Yardman push mower runs too slow to cut much grass. How can I adjust it to run faster? It has no speed selection that I know of, only the handle bar that must be held tight to keep it running....


These inexpensive mowers are not made for large scale mowing. They're set to run as fast as they do and have low compression (read that as low power also) to make them easy to start and operate. About the only thing you can do to make it work better is keep the air cleaner clean, use fresh gas and keep the blade sharp so it cuts the grass easier. Mowing more often also means less cuttings under the deck so it works more efficently.

19.5hp 42" cut. Shakes when mower is engaged to cut


how hard does it shake? and does it mow?
most lawn tractor will shake a quick almost violent shake at first then it should vibrate quite a bit more while you are mowing this is just caused by the power being pulled from the motor to power not only the drive but the mowing deck. its normal.
if its worse than what i described you may have a bigger problem, if there is excessive clanking from the deck your blade may be loose/installed upside down.

Bent Shaft???


Check that the blade securing bolt is secure. While you're there, have somone SLOWLY pull the starter rope. It will be obvious if anything is bent to the extent you describe.

If this machine has a blade clutch, engage blades while you do the pull test (DISCONNECT PLUG WIRE!!!!)
