SOURCE: Craftsman riding mower noise when blades engaged

With blades on and engine off reach under and wiggle each blade up and down. If you have excess play you will need bearings.

SOURCE: how to adjust the mower deck on my murray rider,

Park the tractor on a firm, level surface. . .
At the lower end of the lift/lower travel slot, there should be a plastic cover which you pop up so that your blade lift handle goes all the way down (it should say something about blade level on there somewhere. . . . .
After you have the handle in this position, look at the front lift arms of the mower deck and find the 2 large wing nuts, one on each side. . . . .
Loosen these while the deck is down and then retighten them Your deck is now level and will lift to its highest recommended position when you raise the lever

SOURCE: i have a bolens 38 inch riding mower. it cranked

did you try depressing the clutch to disengage everything regardless of being in neutral? and it sounds like a pulley bearing went bad.try to spin the pulley with your hand and see if it moves.take the belt off to the mower deck and that should keep them from turning when you go to start it.

Testimonial: "thanks. at least i can crank it and get it to a trailer instead of pushing it. i really appreciate it.......cb"

SOURCE: how do I raise the blades

there should be a big bar on the right side of the mower that changes the deck height. if it only going up a little look for a height limiter dial on the other side of the mower about where the height adjustment bar is on the right side.

good luck and be careful!

How to level the mower deck


There are many possible answers, but the best way I've found and for all types of mowers is:
Put the mower on a level garage floor or pavement area. Rise the mower deck to the highest level. By hand (everything off, of course), position both blade tips to the furthest outside edge of the mower deck (widest from tip to tip). Use two wood blocks or equivalent sized objects and place them under the blade tips. Find something that comes very close to the blade but doesn't touch. This is so you can see a gap for reference sake. Adjust the linkages (usually long links, from front of tractor) until the spacing is the same between both blade tips and the objects under them.
The manual has you measuring the blade tips. I find blocks or spacers easier...

How do I level the deck on a John Deere X500 mower


FInd and buy a deck level guage (makes it so much easier) photo.25191349-sc2hyhwnmj3wm0xvqhiyjoyo-1-0_0.jpgAdjust the front tire pressures to 14 psi. Set the rear tires to 10 psi. Make sure that the mower is on level ground,concrete driveway or garage floor. Set you deck height knob to 2.5 inches. Move the blades to where the blade tips are pointing to the side of the mower deck. Level the deck side to side by adjusting the lift link nuts,15mm or 17mm wrench. Get the side to side as level and possible and close to a number or mark on the guage. Move the blade tips to the front of the mower deck. Check the front to back and have a 1/8" to 1/4" lower on the front of the blades than the back. 18mm and 19mm wrenches for the front adjusting bracket.

My Craftsman Lawn Tractor is making a whining sound and a burning odor when I have the cutting deck engaged. It stops as soon as I dis-engage the blades.


it sounds like the deck and or the belt needs to be adjusted and aligned. 1st make sure mower is OFF and blades are disengaged. check to make sure the deck/blades are free of harden grass, twigs, branches, and that they are free moving. 2nd make sure belt is in its correct path. 3rd make sure the deck can be lowered and raised without obstructions 4th make sure no parts have been bent and the pulleys are parallel to the deck and the deck is not cracked or broken by the blades hitting something hard and the deck being damaged. 5th the belt adjustment needs to be tight but not over tightened (see a service dealer).
hope this has been helpful. contact me if you need further help.
Thank you.

Check that the cutting tip of the blade that is cutting lower is not bent down. Also park the mower on a level surface and lower the deck and check the gap under the front of the deck is even. If not, there are levelling adjustments on the top of one side of the deck. Regards Phil

My Cub Cadet i1042 tractor shuts off when the blade is engaged. This happened after I ran over a ***** and/or stump. Every time I try to engage the blade the engine shuts off.


Check for bent blade against deck housing.Possible you bent something on mowing deck,check all spindles and pulleys.You could have something hung on blade and making contact with deck. Rarely will the motor be hurt from hitting object on rider.

How do I adjust the deck level on a Husqvarna riding mower?


Not sure if you are looking for the nuts and knobs or how to level? Most newer decks have knobs for adjuctments. I park my mower on a concrete level surface make sure all tires are at the correct psi then with tape measure check front left and right at bottom of deck for same measurment. You can also put a 2 ft level on the deck and adjust.

It sounds like your mowing deck is too close to the ground. Can you adjust the blade height with a lever? I have a Craftsman riding mower, my deck height is adjusted manually with the use of a locking level shifter, be sure yours is set to the proper minimum height and this will eliminate driving the blades into the turf.

Mandrel on right side has broken 3 times have only done 7.3 hours


It sounds like your blade is hitting the ground when you are mowing.If you have high spots in your yard the blade will cut into the ground and the mounts on the mandrel will break. Make sure the mower rake adjustment is set correctly,the mower blade should be level or a maximum of 1/4 inch lower in the front.This adjustment is done with the adjuster bolt that runs from the front of the mower to the frame under the muffler, it may have one or two rods connecting the mower at this point. Also make sure the wheels are set down far enough so they can prevent the deck from scalping,they have five different mount holes,if they are up in the highest they will not do anything.Unfortunately these mower mandrels will not take a lot of punishment and they can break when the blades contact anything like dirt or tree roots. Your ultimate action may be just to mow the grass a little higher to keep from scalping. Hope this helps.

It's fun to ride around the yard on the mower, watching scrubby grass (and weeds) turn into trimmed lawn. However, when the grass looks as bad after you mow as it did before, or the mower doesn't want to start, riding mowers aren't as much fun. That's when it's time to put on your Fix-It Club hat and have some more fun.

A riding lawn mower is a gas-powered machine for cutting grass. The engine turns a rotating blade that cuts the top off the grass blades to a specified height. The operator sits atop the mower on a tractor-type seat with speed and height controls nearby. Riding mowers also can be used to pull small utility carts for other yard jobs.

To remove the mower deck:
  1. Make sure that the parking brake is locked.
  2. Place scrap lumber under the front and rear of the deck.
  3. Use the deck lever to lower the deck.
  4. Remove attachments from the deck.
  5. Remove the blade drive belt from the front pulley.
  6. Remove the front and rear deck fasteners, following instructions in your owner's manual.
  7. Use the deck lever to raise the deck.
  8. Remove the scrap lumber.
  9. Remove the deck from under the mower.
To adjust the drive belt:
  1. Remove the belt from the large idler pulley.
  2. Remove the belt from the adjustable idler pulley.
  3. Carefully remove the spring-loaded large idler pulley.
  4. Loosen the adjustable idler pulley and move it slightly toward the rear of the mower to tighten it[md]or move it toward the front to loosen it—and retighten the pulley.
  5. Replace the belt.
  6. Check belt tension and readjust as needed.
