Question about Craftsman 24 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor

1 Answer

I have a craftsman 48" riding lawn mower and when I was mowing I ran over a piece of rope which got stuck around the spindle. I have tried to remove the rope but am not having much luck. Is there an easy way to get the rope off of the spindle?

There is usually no easy way as the rope goes really tight, The best thing is to use an old bread knife with a wavy edge to cut it off.
The hardest thing is getting to it, if you are up to removing the deck and turning it over, that is the best way.

GOOD MORNING, I HAVE A D140 JOHN DEERE LAWN MOW,IT RUN WELL WHEN NOT MOWING BUT WHEN ENGAGED IT SLOW DOWN AS THOUGH IT HAS TO CATCH IT'S BREATH LESS THAN THREE YEARS OLD


Make sure there isn't anything binding the deck belt or blades. Check the spindles for free movenent. If all that is good then it might be the linkage that is supposed to adjust the throttle when the engine is under load or it might be a carb issue...especially if you run ethanol gas in it.

How to remove a stuck bolt on blades on riding mower.


The blade bolt can be very difficult to remove sometimes and will require an impact wrench. If that doesn't work, you will need to heat up the nut only with a Ox/Acetylene torch, then it will remove easily. Do not heat the nut too much or it will ruin the thread on the spindle when it comes off. Remember to heat the nut only.

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

Disengaging blades when mowing completed


the cam plate that the tensioner pulley is mounted on that rotates back around to tighten the belt as the cable or rod is engaged is likely rusted and worn, there is a bushing in this pivot that can be removed and cleaned fairly easily with a abrasive wheel or pad and lubricated upon reassembly.

When try to pull on the rope to start the mower is will not move. It feels like it is stuck. But I can move the blade around. Thank you


I thing the recoil spring is stuck it may be rusty. Its time for a complete maintenance on this mower. But you could try tapping the top of the recoil where the rope coils up into. Bang it a few times as you pull on the rope. this may free it up. Good luck DFD
