I need help changing the be belt on a Dewalt 734 planer.

Installing a New Belt
NOTE: No tools are necessary to install a belt. The use of a
screwdriver or other tool to pry or stretch a belt may cause
damage to the pulleys and ultimately destroy the new belt.
1. Remove the crank handle.
2. Remove the two hex screws from the top, right side of
the planer.
3. Remove the two, small cross head screws securing the
side panels to the top of the planer.
4. Lift the side panel up out of the slot in the base and
remove the panel from the machine. Notice the grooves
inside the belt.
5. Start the belt on the top pulley (P) with 3 grooves on the
pulley, as shown in Figure 22.
6. Guide the belt between the lower pulley and the height
adjustment screw (Q), as shown in Figure 23.
7. With three grooves engaged on the large pulley, rotate
the pulley clockwise. Keep pressure on the edge of the
belt to keep the grooves engaged on the small pulley.
8. Continue pressure on the side of the belt and rotate
the large pulley while hopping the belt further onto the
pulleys, as shown in Figure 24.
9. All of the belt grooves should be engaged in the final
position and the pulleys should rotate smoothly.
10. Reinstall the side cover and the screws. Do not
overtighten the self-tapping screws.

The belt is not broken, but came off the pulley....cannot figure out how to put it back....Margie

Hello, I will try to help you. There are usually 3 belts on a riding mower. Most often the belt which connects the motor to the blade pulleys is the problem belt.

Assuming this is your problem belt, you need to open the hood of the riding mower and unplug the sparkplug. You do this for safety so the engine will not try to start while you are moving things. Then take off the shield which is covering the blade pulley on the side you step over to ride the mower.

You will find the belt laying on the mower deck. If the belt is still good, you leave the belt on the pulley on the far side of the lawn deck alone. Then loop the belt around the motor pulley in the bottom front of your machine.

There are thin metal guides which the belt needs to run in between. The guides hold the wobbling belt in position to continue threading around the pulley.

Now you will finally come to the last pulley on the lawn deck. This will be the pulley that was under the shield which you removed. You will find that the belt now seems too small and that is because one of the pulleys has a spring.

The tension from this spring is needed to keep the belt from jumping off. Strong hands and perhaps a crowbar will compress the spring on the pulley to allow the final pulley to be threaded with the belt. Sometimes you have to turn the last pulley as you guide the belt onto it.

If your belt jumps off due to a branch derailing it, this happens. But a belt that jumps off because it is wobbling means either the belt has stretched longer or the tension spring is weak.

A TIP: When you start up your mower deck, always have it raised. Your motor is better aligned with all the pulleys when locked in the upright travel position.

After you mount the belt, move the pulleys to make sure no twists exist in the belt. Then reinstall the plug wires to the top of the sparkplugs and close the hood. That should take care of it.

How do I replace the belt on 42" MTD riding mower 600 series?

Remove the plug wire.Lower the deck all the way.Make sure the pto is disengaged.Put the belt on both of the deck pulleys.Now make sure to run the belt inside of the tension pulley.You should have some one else raise and lower the deck so you can see which side of that pulley you need to be on.Now you can put it on the pulley at the front of the mower.

The pulleys all have guides on them.The ones on the deck will move so you can get the belt on.The front pulley has a guide that can be removed very easily it just pops out when you push on it.The tension pulley is the hard one.I wear a leather glove and just roll the pulley till the belt slips in.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

I have very recently purchased a 125/38" MTD. Not sure how old but appears in reasonable condition. I have used it for about total of 4 hours over past two weeks. Today I have a problem... the large...

My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem. You said that the "Pulley" is loose when the blades are disengaged. I hope you meant that the belt is loose, because the pulley should never be loose. If it is loose, you should remove the pulley and make sure the KEY inside the center hole is still ok. Sometimes when the pulley gets loose it chews up the KEY and allows the pulley to turn on the crank. If the KEY is ok, just reinstall the pulley and tighten it.
I believe that your belt is probably just stretched and worn. The mower deck belt gets it's tension from lowering the mower deck. the lower the deck the tighter the belt. Just replace the belt. I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane

I have montgomery ward riding mower and cant

Line up the deck where it needs to be, and lower the lever....the hanging links should come close to where they go, then use the pins (or whatever) to insert into the hanging levers....Leave the handle lowered, then hook the belt onto the engine pulley, then line it up with the pulley on the may have removed the belt guides, so put them back on...They help keep the belt from falling off.
Check your work to make sure things look right...You should be done.

Maintaining Riding Mowers Regular maintenance can reduce repairs. pagetools_04a.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif
Components of a typical riding lawn mower. (click to enlarge)
It's fun to ride around the yard on the mower, watching scrubby grass (and weeds) turn into trimmed lawn. However, when the grass looks as bad after you mow as it did before, or the mower doesn't want to start, riding mowers aren't as much fun. That's when it's time to put on your Fix-It Club hat and have some more fun.

A riding lawn mower is a gas-powered machine for cutting grass. The engine turns a rotating blade that cuts the top off the grass blades to a specified height. The operator sits atop the mower on a tractor-type seat with speed and height controls nearby. Riding mowers also can be used to pull small utility carts for other yard jobs.

To remove the mower deck:
  1. Make sure that the parking brake is locked.
  2. Place scrap lumber under the front and rear of the deck.
  3. Use the deck lever to lower the deck.
  4. Remove attachments from the deck.
  5. Remove the blade drive belt from the front pulley.
  6. Remove the front and rear deck fasteners, following instructions in your owner's manual.
  7. Use the deck lever to raise the deck.
  8. Remove the scrap lumber.
  9. Remove the deck from under the mower.
To adjust the drive belt:
  1. Remove the belt from the large idler pulley.
  2. Remove the belt from the adjustable idler pulley.
  3. Carefully remove the spring-loaded large idler pulley.
  4. Loosen the adjustable idler pulley and move it slightly toward the rear of the mower to tighten it[md]or move it toward the front to loosen it—and retighten the pulley.
  5. Replace the belt.
  6. Check belt tension and readjust as needed.
