Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

My 22" MTD Yardman push mower runs too slow to cut much grass. How can I adjust it to run faster? It has no speed selection that I know of, only the handle bar that must be held tight to keep it running. Air filter is clean. Oil level is full.

These inexpensive mowers are not made for large scale mowing. They're set to run as fast as they do and have low compression (read that as low power also) to make them easy to start and operate. About the only thing you can do to make it work better is keep the air cleaner clean, use fresh gas and keep the blade sharp so it cuts the grass easier. Mowing more often also means less cuttings under the deck so it works more efficently.

By crossing the terminals on the solinoid you have taken this component out of the picture, so the problems has to be in the engine or the starter, if the auto deco valve in the engine is not working the engine will be sluggish to crank over.

I have a mtd yard man 22inch / mulcher . My question is how do I get the mower to start mulching ?


For mowers like yours, there are straight cut discharge blades (for bagging the grass) and there are more expensive upswept mulching blades. Any holes in the sides of the deck must be covered to mulch as the blade keeps the grass up in the air under the deck, repeatedly cutting it...over and over..till it falls on the ground.So use a solid deck with the upswept type blade.

Why do grass get stuck in lawnmower than it starts to turn off


This can be happening from a couple of reasons, first if your grass is too damp this will happen with almost any mower, wait till the lawn dries out before cutting, you may be cutting the lawn when it is too high, try cutting it twice a week maybe this will help, you may try to raise the cut setting eliminating the amount of grass clippings that you have accumulated, if you are mulching or using the bag be sure the chute is clear, and lastly be sure you are running at a higher speed to push through the terrain.
Happy Mowing!!

I have a yardman 46 in cut riding mower, it is leaving grass in the middle. I have put new blades, change the belts, put on a new tention spring, so what is my problem?


Well one of the spindle assemblies, could be running a little slower on one side then the other. But I would take a guess that you are trying to cut grass, way too fast for the mower. Try running a ground speed a liitle slower and see what happens.
Good Day.

MTD Yardman push mower runs fine for awhile then cuts off.


Try buying a new plug first but if it continues then I would say that there is debris in the carb.
