Sounds as though you have the belt on improperly. Or is the clutch not engaging to turn the belt?

When I engage the lever for the blades to start cutting, the blades don't engage


Check for bad or loose belt also see if you are missing a shear pin in one of your drive pulleys. See if your lever to engage the blades is actually putting driving pressure on the belt. Could be a spring is missing as well.

When I engage the blades nothing happens. Any ideas?


I have a YTH 150 with a similar problem. The mower has an electrically powered clutch which is activated when you engage the blade button. If the drive belt has no tension on it, engaging the clutch doesn't do anything because the drive wheel will just spin but the blades won't. Look for broken tension springs on the mower deck and replace.

The belt that drives the blades for cutting has broken and I need to replace it. I have a Craftsman LTX1000 lawn tractor and I've misplaced the manual. The belt is 96" long. Not sure where to...


With the mower off.
Look on top of the deck.Find the pulleys for the blades then find the engine pulley.There should be one more pulley that is the tension pulley.Watch that pulley as you pull the engage blade lever,while still turned off.The belt will go on the blade pulleys,and the engine pulley,it needs the tension pulley to push it tight.So you need to make sure it goes on the inside of the tension pulley.If you get the belt on and it does not engage,just remove it and replace it on the opposite side of the tension pulley.

well yep it is,,,look at the deck first to check its not tight to turn look for sezed up bearings,,,then check that the drive belt/s are tight and not flopy and slipping also it would be a good time to check the cutting blades they need to be sharp and not blunt or they strain the belts and start them slipping too also the engine wont like the extra load put on it

Mower cuts off when blade is engaged.


Not familiar with this model, but a thought, check for a kill switch.

Install belt on toro mower model 70041


For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
  1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
  2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
  3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
  4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
  5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.
