Replacing Riding Lawnmower Blade Belts.

I discovered on a Craftman Riding 3 bladed mower that there is an easy way to replace the belt for the blade pulleys.

The mandrel cover of the Left side blade is the only part you need to remove to replace the belt. You can insert the belt under the right side mandrel cover and onto the clutch pulley before finishing on the left side of the mower.

The tensioner or idler pulleys will contract when you pull on the belt. When you get to the left blade pulley you can turn the pulley with one hand and guide the belt with the other hand. The belt will walk right up onto the pulley. Attach the cover and you're done.

I like my method because you can stay away from a hot engine and replace the belt without waiting for the motor to cool off. You are also not fighting the mower clutch or drivebelt with my method.

How to change drive belt

Tom, see pages 23 and 24 from the link below. I have the same tractor but with the 22hp engine. It is much easier to remove the mower deck to replace the drive belt. Make sure your brake is set as this relieves tension on the drivebelt system. Good luck.

Drive belt broken or slipped of pulleys, hydrostatic drive filter(s) plugged. Should be one or those, Roger. Follow the drivebelt with your hand (disconnect battery to be safe) and see if it hasn't slipped off the engine drive pulley, idler pulleys, or axle pulley. If you tractor is hydrostat, may be time to replace filter.

Lawnmower keeps slipping power drivebelt over rear sleeve

Usually, when the machine throws belts, the best thing to do is to replace the belt. Sometimes they are worn out or stretched, and you just can't tell it. I had a pristine looking belt on a pretty new mower doing the same thing. I replaced the belt, problem solved.
Best regards, and happy mowing! --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!
