I had both my front wheels wobbly - so I cut shims from a tin can - wrapped the axle of the wheels with the shims and then inserted them back into the plastic bushes. It was a snug fit - but helped quite a lot.

Hi judycdenn

You can get replacement wheels from most decent hardware stores, either with ball race bearings, or just plain old plastic bushes. they don't cost much, I would take in my old wheel to get one that fits.

But before you go buying spares for the mower... you should read this

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

How do I get the back wheel to stop wobbling and rubbing the side of the mower?


Hello. My guess is that if the wheel is not bent or broken around the spokes and is snug on axle, then you have a wheel bearing out. Simple to find and replace. Good luck.

I would take it back to the store and ask for warranty repairs since it is so new. That's ridiculous. If that doesn't work, try Sears Parts on-line or on the phone. They are better than most other manufactures.

I have a Craftsman, front wheel drive mower. I have replaced the front (drive) wheels every 6 months for the last two years. The plastic gears on the wheels just get chewed up. What is the problem?


Must be a bad mower that got thru the assembly line somehow. I have owned a front wheel drive Craftsman mower for 7 yrs and have never had one single problem with anything on it.

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

Make sure you are putting the wheel on the right way. The rim may be off-set. The longer part of the hub should be on the inside.
