check for a broken belt tension er or maybe grass clippings under belt area, check for a broken or loose pulley bearing, even a bent shaft on the deck.

SOURCE: mower quits when engaging mower deck of husqvarna yth 2348

Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.

How do I get tension on the belt that drives the deck. The belt goes from the PTO to the deck but is not tight. When you engage the PTO there is not enough tension to drive the deck.


You either have too long a belt or it is routed incorrectly. Do a Google search for you make and model deck belt routing or look up on jackssmallengine.com

I have a Sears Garden Tractor with a 48" mower deck. By working in long, thick grass I broke the mower belt -- not the one that transmits power from the engine, but the belt that sits in a pulley on...


I believe that tensioner pully has to be loosend up and moved.
Here are the instructions for this.
  • Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.

  • 2

    Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.

  • 3

    Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.

  • 4

    Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.

  • 5

    Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.

  • 6

    Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.

  • 7

    Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.

  • 8

    Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.

  • 9

    Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.

    How do you put the drive belt for the hydrostatic drive on?


    You'll be working underneath the mower, so it is helpful to raise the mower chassis up -- at least in back. Use your automobile jack, then put jackstands underneath the chassis to do this. Take off the deck drive belt first by releasing the idler spring(s). Unbolt and remove the "anchor" that keeps the PTO clutch from rotating. Disconnect the electrical wires leading to the PTO. Release the tension on the idler for the hydrostatic drive belt. Now you can thread the new hydrostatic belt over the engine pulley and around both wheel motor pulleys. The idler pulley presses it inward to provide tension. Refasten the idler spring - a pair of channellock pliers works well to hold and pull the spring. Now reinstall the wires and the PTO anchor, then the mower deck belt. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks!

    I have a cub cadet RZT 54 that was purchased in the spring of 2009. The mower cranks and runs fine but the blades will not engage. Have looked at electrical connections and everything looks fine.


    Do you hear a "clunk" when you engage the PTO switch, but the blades don't turn? If so, then check the mower deck belt - is it properly threaded, and tensioned by the idler pulley? If there's absolutely no sound when you engage the PTO switch, the problem is likely electrical (even though everything looks OK). The PTO switch, PTO clutch, and the reverse lockout switches (near the bottom of the fwd/reverse control arms) should be checked. I don't think there's a separate fuse for the PTO on your mower, but there may be a relay. Even though these parts and connections look OK, they can fail internally. Best bet is to get a multitester and check each of them with the ohmmeter function.

    Another possibility, is a broken spring or a tight/ rusted idler pivot arm.
