I assume the front wheels are the drive wheels. There is a cover over the belt, on top you'll see a plastic cover, if it drives from the bottom you'll have a metal cover under the deck. Eigther way remove that cover which ever one it is. This will expose drive and give you acess. They tend to collect alot of debri and rust clean before remounting or repacing belt.

What would cause a troybilt self propelled mower 12a-466m011front wheels to lock up when pulling back? Also why would this continue when mower is off?


There could be several things. Have you recently changed the belt? Was it an OEM belt? i have seen loose trannys cock in such a way as to put the belt in a bind and not let it slip when reversing. More likely is that there are dogs on the wheels and one or both aren\'t releasing.

Troybilt self propelled mower front wheels lock up when pulling back


most have small leaf springs that let it toggle back and forward, if they brake can cause this problem. Then it may just need the wheels removed, clean the parts and lubed

How do you adjust the drive cable on a troybilt self pro pelled md# 12A-446A711?????


Unfortunately, you cannot adjust it. If you have an extra space to move it lower than it was on the handle you can do that. You might have to get a new cable. Or the belt may need to be replaced. Do you hear a grinding noise when you try to engage the self propel? If so the transmission may have gone out. The most common problem is that the belt has jumped off from where it needs to be and it is no longer turning. To check to see if the belt is off, you will need to put the mower on its' side, the side with the oil level check is the correct one. You will need to loosen the cover over the drive belt. This is done by loosening one or two bolts that hold it in place.The bolts should have 3/8 hex heads. You may have to maneuver the cover a bit to see if the belt is in place. If the belt has jumped above the pulley for the self propel then you will have to install a new belt.

I have a troybilt xp, and the self propel fontion


Does the drive shaft going to the wheels turn at all?

If it doesnt you may have a unsecured pulley on the engine.

If the shaft does turn when you engage the tranny your next stop is taking the wheels off and checking the wheel clutches. Sometimes called sprag clutches. They are probably both stuck in the unlocked position. You need to clean them up by removing all the greasy material covering them and putting them back together with just a few drops of light oil.

I hope this helps. Good luck and be careful!

My self propelled high wheel mower doesn't go


If this is a TroyBilt 34068, check your belt to make sure it is still on the transmission pulley. If the belt is in place, start it up, engage the transmission and observe both axle ends where they protrude from the center of the wheels, if one of them is turning, you have somehow lost the square key that locks the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you will be good to go

Troy Bilt 33'' Replaced the self propel v belt and now the mower will not disengage from drive mode, also very hard to shift gears


If you didn't by the Troybilt belt, try that. I had the same problem with a Napa belt. Going into drive as soon as I grabbed the operator presence button, not coming out of gear etc. When I switched the the Troybilt belt, the problem went away.

Self propel belt is too tight to put back on


the best way to install it is to put it on the motor shaft first and then to start putting it on the large pulley at the top and roll it on these belts can be hard to put on.
