Question about Craftsman Hydro Ground Drive Belt

Open Question

I have a model #917.28870 lawn tractor. I recently changed the ground drive belt due to slippage. It worked fine for the first 8 hours or so and is now slipping as before. The belt was replaced exactly as it came out. with a craftsman belt, are there any adjustments? if so where?

It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.

Go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Enter the model number that is under the seat. If it's a lawn tractor, it will start with 917. That will get you to all the diagrams of the mower.

What size belt does my lawnmower take its a Craftsman lt2000 model# 917.275762


How would someone know that,
unless they had the same product ?

You have no owners manual or service
manual?

All you have to do, is remove the old belt,
& read the numbers on it

You can stop by any small equipment shop & give
them the old belt or the make & model numbers & they
will look up the new belt

Fix a motion drive belt squeals on a Craftsman 24 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model


If I understand the issue correctly, the belt that drives the machine's transmission squeals. When does it squeal? When engaging the clutch? When in motion?
Typically it's the condition of the belt. It's likely slipping due to stretch, wear or from an oil leak causing it to slip, or simply due to a loose idler pulley, worn idler pulley bearing, broken spring. Look for all that stuff. Look at the drive belt and inspect for wear, cracks, fraying, missing rubber, etc. Replace it if any of those conditions are found.

Toro manuals


If the belt has quite a few hours it may have stretched enough to cause it to slip. May have to replace it. I replaced mine and works fine now. As a short fix you can spray with a belt dressing and will work for a while if the slippage is not too bad. The can will specify for slipping belts.

Craftsman lawn tractor model 917.270821 ( Auto trans)


Check the fluid level in the transmission. If the fluid level is low, the trans will act as if it's slipping.

Cratsman lt2000 lawn tractor will start but will not move forward or backward. I tried changing the drive belt, but that didn't work.


Is the transaxle pulley turning? If so have you removed the rear wheel recently and possibly lost the square key that fits on the axle?check those two items first.If ok it probably has a broken gear or shift key in transaxle.

LTX 1000 CRAFTSMAN /42 IN. DECK BELT LODGED ABOVE PULLEY AND STOPPED MOWER AND BROKE BELT. IS THE BELT SIZE 96 OR 97 INCH? THE BELT HAS DONE IT TWICE/STCK BETWEEN THE PULLEY AND THE THING ABOVE IT.


Without the model number, I couldn't tell you what belt goes on the ground drive. That 174883 is a 5/8 x 97" and is your deck drive belt. Your ground drive belt may just need replacing. They will wear thin and loosen up between the pulleys and cause the problems you're having. The old belt may still have the numbers on it.
