SOURCE: How does the belt go on a 18/44 Lowes Mtd mower

You should get the same belt that came with it, they tend to last alot longer ! Most of the time the deck has the diagram on the deck to show how belt goes on,sometimes under the pulley guards, you can also type in your model in google you should get good results.I can also help you with getting belt at a good price.

SOURCE: How do I tighten the mower belt on a lt1000?

It is kept tight by a tensioning pully. If it is loose, replace it.

You need a new belt, if that's the original belt then itshe time for a new one as that original is worn....it happens... the belts are made to be tight already, there is no adjustment.

if by floppy do you mean that tips move up down 1/2 inch yes this is normal, if they move more ck spindle bearings ill bet your missing a few balls in there , and nope no belt should have chunks missing , and yes defective belts will slip and not get proper blade speed from engine to blades
clean out belt path after every use , that belt guide path is a magnet to sticks and stuff collecting there , also allways use kevlar belts , not ones from a car there not 4 to take the heat a kevlar belt will

What causes belt shredding on swisher pull behind mower, 44" cut, 11.5 hp


how old is your trail mower? have you checked the pulleys for the belt drive? possibly the pulleys are loose, or the shafts holding them are worn and wobbling causing a misalignment of the belt, in turn shredding the belt. also check the pulleys to make sure they are smooth, allowing the belt to move cleanly

Swisher 44" mower starts and runs but engine bogs


The engine in this machine seems to be powerful. If you can remove the belt from the pulley that drives the blade. Try turning the pulley buy hand. If it turns tight or not at all this is your problem. The unit that is the pulley to blade assembly is seized or ready to seize. Sometimes they are designed to be taken apart and repaired, and sometimes they are not. Did you check for a grease fitting within the pulley to blade unit?
I would like to hear how this works out for you. Best of luck.

I dont believe there is a shear pin on your blade spindles, what I have found on these machines is the the spindle nuts on the balde spindles sometimes loosen or wear and no longer squeeze the pulley on the blade spindle. To make this process easy on your self you need to tighten these with a impact wrench. However if you dont have access to a impact wrench you can use hand tools and block the blades you are trying to tighten with a wooden block. Just make sure you block the blade you are trying to tighten
