Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
There are no bolt style tensioners on this equipment. There is a cable attached to the handle that engages the mower. The cable runs to a large spring that is attached to the belt tensioner and that is what tightens the belt. It is possible that the belt is off a drive pulley or the tensioner has frozen and will no longer engage, or the cable could be broken. Typically the belt has slipped off a drive pulley or you hit something hard with the blade
