The thing you are referring to is a belt most likely. Go to a hardware store and tell them the make and model of your mower. If you do not need a belt you will need a pulley.

The blade on my new skil 3310 won't raise. It came preassembled & has never been used, but the elevation wheel feels locked. I can adjust the angle, but turning the knob doesn't raise/lower blade.


Just as a question and I am not being smart you know that the wheel to raise the blade work counter clockwise.
The other thing you need to check is in your manual here is the part how to adjust the blade for raisin/lowering.
After five hours of operation, the blade elevation/tilting mechanism should be checked for looseness, binding, or other abnormalities. Disconnect the saw from the power source, turn the saw upside down and pull up and down on the motor unit. Observe any movement in the motor mounting mechanism. Looseness or play in the blade raising screw 1 should be adjusted as follows (Fig. 55): 1. Loosen nut 2. 2. Adjust the nut 3 until it is finger-tight against the bracket 4, then back off the nut 3 1/6 turn. 3. Tighten nut 2. The maximum allowable play of the screw rod 1 is 5/32" (4 m). Place a small amount of dry lubricant (such as graphite or silicon) on the screw rod 1 at the thrust washer 5. Do not oil the threads of screw rod 1. The screw rod 1 must be kept clean and free of sawdust, gum, pitch, and other contaminant's for smooth operation. NOTE: If excessive looseness is observed in any other part of the blade elevation mechanism or tilting mechanism, take the complete unit to an authorized service center.

My poulan 18 inch chain saws blade turns but only cuts in about an inch and won't go any farther. It's two days old and worked fine cutting the first 2 trees down.


It sounds like the chain does want sharpening, it depends on what you are cutting ( type of timber, dirty timber,burnt timber etc ) as to how long before it needs sharpening, if the chain comes into contact with the ground below the tree it will lose its edge instantly.

During mowing grass will gather underside of deck leaving 2 streaks on r and l if you turn deck off grass will fall out of deck before restarting u need tgo move or mower will stall from grass build up...


There are a couple of things going on here. First, the blades are likely worn out and need replaced. As they wear and loose some length they can leave a trail. Second, if you have regular blades on a deck configured (by having discharge plugged) for mulching and you are using regular blades, then you can have a problem with build up. Third, you can have clumping problems if the grass is not dry when you are mowing.

I hope this is helpful for you.

I have an old Sears Jig Saw, model 110 25710, that has a broken blade. I need a new blad and instructions on how to remove the broken one, and replace it with the new one. Can you offer any assistance?


Take a look at the point of blade locking to the tool. Should be 2 hexagon bolts. Using the right size tool, unscrew them carefylly, pull out the broken blade, go to your local hardware store, and get a new one that will have the same size on the tail. ( the side that gets inside the slide on the saw). Slide the new blade to the saw, and tighten the bolts back but do it equally twisting them in turns, half a turn each time to keep the blade staying straight.
Whole thing should last no more than 5 min. ( Remember to keep the power cable unplugged all the time you make the change. Your fingers are priceless).

I hit a rock and bent the blade on a yard machine. Replaced the blade and tried to start the mower, but the start rope doesn't come out all the way and recoils hard as I'm trying to pull it out.


I did the same exact thing over the weekend, try adjusting your new blade unscrew the main bolt to the blade about 1/2 turn that should get it spinning again, same exact thing happened to me. Good Luck
