Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

Hello I have a husqvarna YTH22V46 riding mower that doesn't want to move. I have changed drive belt in the spring and it worked fine but now mulching leaves the drive has slowed. I have replaced the belt again but it still moves very slow or not at all. Is it possibly a bad pulley or tension spring?? THANKS

Bleed the air out of the transmission. Pull the lever at the rear of the garden tractor and disengage the transmission. Then fire it up and press forward pedal for ten seconds, then reverse for ten seconds. Do this a total of three times, then re-engage the transmission. I had the problem you did, but after reading you had questionable success changing the belt, I read the freaking manual and saw that you should do this when it's brand new. I figured it couldn't hurt, and voila, I could pull inclines again and go much faster.

It is quite possible that one or the other of your pinions (item 55 in parts manual) has gone bad in addition to the wheels. Start the mower, engage the drive and lift the back end just enough to clear the ground and see if both wheels turn. If only one wheel turns, attempt to stop it from turning by setting it on the ground at an angle, if the opposite wheel does not turn, you will need to inspect the pinions.

SOURCE: Can a mulching blade work in a non-mulching mower?

True Mulching mowers have a specific deck design to them, but I would say yes to your question.It's been quite a few years, but I have done this little conversion myself - replace regular blade with a mulching blade. Just make sure the mulch blade does fit your mower. Also, use something substantial in terms of strength to close the discharge opening. There can be a good deal of force placed at the opening from flying debris. You'll also want to make the cover removable, so you can mow damp grass without the cover.

SOURCE: gaining access to change a drive belt on mower

the belt cover should have screws with the heads on top of the deck, then there is a guide which keeps the belt in the engine pulley with 2 or 3 bolts you might be able ot get it on the gearbox with just those off and a bit of prying etc.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

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.

It sounds like the transmission drive belt is slipping. When you pull the pedal back you are increasing the tension on the belt. You may also want to make sure the spring that pulls tension on the idler pulley is in tact. Hope this gets you in the right direction.

I think the hydrostatic drive belt broke on my 20hp Husqvarna riding mower. how do i go about getting to it to see if that is actually the problem? Everything runs fine, except that it won't move. sc,...


The drive belt is the topmost belt, next to the frame of the tractor. So jack up the front end, lower the deck and take a look at the engine shaft if there is a loose/broken belt laying up there. If so then you are right. You will have to remove the deck to replace the belt. There is a spring loaded tensioner, released by the brake pedal, so you will need a confederate to hold the pedal down for the last step of install. Begin by putting the belt around the big pulley on top of the transmission first, then the engine pulley. If the belt is in place then you most likely have a fried transmission and they are so expensive prepare to get another mower.

you probably need to adjust the tension. if you look somwhere near the drive belt then you see a spring. tighten the spring to tighten the belt.
