Hello, David, W/D here.
It may be time for a new belt. I have a new Husqvarna and it needed a new belt after one year. Curiously, the replacement belt has lasted much longer that the original.
Best regards, --W/D--

I need help putting rear end back together on a 10 hp30 Murray riding lawnmower


Safety and Preparation Serious injury can occur if the engine or mower blades accidentally start while you are working with lawn tractors. To prevent this, drive the Murray lawn tractor onto a flat work surface and disengage the mowing deck cutting blades. Engage the parking brake to keep the mower from moving; chock the wheels with a wooden block or brick. Adjust the mowing deck to the lowest position. Turn off the engine and remove the key from the ignition. While not necessary, you may even wish to disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Mowing Deck Removal You must remove the mowing deck on a Murray lawn tractor to gain access to the belts. Remove the adjustment rod hairpins, followed by the adjustment rod pins from the front left and right sides of the mowing deck. At the rear on the left and right sides, pull out the retaining hairpins and slide the mowing deck suspension links from the adjuster plates to separate the rear mowing deck from the frame. Remove the blade control rod stud, including the hairpin and washer, from the top of the blade control lever shift linkage at the left rear of the deck. Remove the front hanger rod, including the hairpin and flat washer that hold the rod in place. Loosen the belt guide retaining bolts with a socket wrench and remove the engine stack pulley belt so you can slide the mower deck out from under the tractor Transmission Drive Belt Installation Slide the new transmission drive belt between the engine stack pulley belt guides, over the belt guide plate and under the engine stack pulley. Fit the transmission drive belt around the top engine stack pulley. Push the free end of the transmission drive belt up through the transmission shifter hole in the lawn tractor floorboard. Slip the transmission drive belt loop over the transmission shifter. Pull the transmission drive belt down through the transmission shifter hole. Fit the transmission drive belt around the transmission drive pulley and tighten the transmission drive pulley belt guide retaining bolts to hold it in place. Fit the transmission drive belt flat side around the idler pulley. Slide the idler pulley onto the idler pulley stud while holding the belt in place. Tighten the transmission idler pulley retaining nut with a socket wrench to secure the idler pulley to the idler pulley stud. Mowing Deck Drive Belt Installation Pull back on the right side mowing deck mandrel pulley spring-tensioned belt retainer. Guide the new mowing deck drive belt around the right side mandrel pulley and release the belt retainer. Pull the drive belt spring-tensioned retainer away from the mowing deck idler pulley, guiding the deck drive belt around the idler pulley. Fit the mowing deck drive belt around the left side mandrel pulley and under the rear mowing deck cross link rod between the right and left side mandrel pulley. Slide the mowing deck under the right side lawn tractor frame, reconnecting the deck to the frame in reverse order of removal. Engage and disengage the mower deck while driving the mower to test the belt for proper operation.

DECK BELT KEEPS COMING OFF--


MOST probably needs a new belt. Or, if you recently replaced belt, it's the wrong size (too long).
Make sure you get right sized belt, and get Kevlar belt - non-Kevlar belts wear out and stretch sooner.

Drive belt slips on Husqvarna YTH21K46 riding lawnmower, installed new drive belt and it slips. mower is 2 years old


I had this same issue. New belts and correct routing did not solve the problem. The issue with my mower was the tabs that come off the frame that you bolt the transaxle (the drive for the rear wheels and axle) had almost completely torn/cracked away. This allowed the transaxle to tilt forward under a load and slip the belt off the rear drive pulley. You see no mention of this at the dealer or company sights. The tabs are so thin this is going to happen, in my opinion, in time. I reinforced this area with 1/4 inch angle iron and have had no further belt issue.

The belt that comes from the engine to mower deck keeps breaking. I've owned the mower for years and I have to buy atleast 12 belts per year. The problen is really bad now. A belt per cutting. I've...


I own a Craftsman rider, DTY 4000, 25 HP Kohler, 48" cut, 137 Hrs. It eats a belt about every mowing or two. Did all the stuff you did. Good luck from Sears. Had cousin who is owns a lawn & garden repair business look at it today. Says the prob. is this - The drive belt pulley (elec clutch) has too a narrow "V" and the angle of wear between it and the deck when the deck is in the lowered (mowing) position is too severe. If you notice with the deck in the fully raised position the pulleys line up perfectly. Then drop your deck and see how tightly bent the belt is downward and it makes sense as to why(my) belt would first roll over then break in a few minutes. The elec clutch pulley is sold as one unit PT No. 179334 $250.00, but I'm sure it would come with the same narrow V pulley. Waiting for word from my cousin. My last Sears Mower. Cannot even sell it in good faith.

The belt dry rotted and flew off without me being able to remove it myself, now I need to know how to install the new drive belt.


To install the drive belt you will have to remove the drive belt first.
Follow the procedure: ---
Park the tractor on a level surface. Set the parking brake and remove the key from the ignition. Study the belt replacement guide decal located underneath the left foot board for proper belt routing instructions.
Remove the mowing deck by first moving the attachment clutch lever to the disengaged position (toward you). Move the attachment lift lever all the way forward to lower the mower housing to its down position.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off engine pulley (it hangs directly beneath the engine). Remove small retainer clip that holds the clutch spring to the pulley bolt located at the center of the mowing deck. Remove the large retainer springs (two of them), then slide the belt collar away from the mower housing and off the housing bracket.
Disconnect the anti-sway bar rods from the chassis brackets by removing the retaining cotter pins. Disconnect front links from the mower deck by removing retaining cotter pins. Disconnect the suspension arms from the rear mower deck brackets by removing the two cotter pins.
Move the attachment lift lever all the way to the forward position to raise the mower suspension arms to the full up position. Slide the mower deck out from beneath the tractor.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off of the stationary idler pulley and the clutching idler pulley. They are both located immediately adjacent to the engine pulley. Be sure the belt is already away from the engine pulley, as well.
Push the drive belt slack toward the rear of tractor. Remove the drive belt from the Trans axle pulley by taking it over the trans axle pulley while compressing the movable belt keepers surrounding it. Remove the old belt from the tractor by pushing it clear of the center span keeper (located beneath the Trans axle pulley).
Install a new drive belt by following the reverse of the instructions for removal. Test the tractor and mower for normal operation.
 Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Swisher 60 deck belt breaks after mowing about 15 minutes.


Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?

Belt slipped on the poulan self propelled lawn mower


The belt hopped off likely due to grass or other things getting in-between the belt and pulley near the blade. You should be able to remove the cover on the top of the mower deck, remove the belt from the pulley under the cover, place the belt back on the pulley near the blade and then on the pulley under the cover. If the belt is shiny on the sides or you see black powder caking the inside of the cover or area's around the pulleys or the belt looks like it has chunks missing from any part of it the belt should be replaced. local hardwares, automotive and DIY centers that carry outdoor power equipment parts can match it up with the one the manual recommends using.

Tip: Keep the blade sharp, I recommend buying a couple blades so that you can always have a sharp spare installed while the other is being sharpened, change the blade as soon as the sharp edge is gone and becomes somewhat rounded on the cutting edge. If the lawn produces a lot of dust or there are lots of bald patches this will dull the blade quickly as will chopping up stick with the mower, if this is the case take steps to improve the lawn and keep the sticks picked up before you mow.
Change the oil before using it in the spring and after each 50 hours of use (more often if its used in a dusty area).
I recommend using a synthetic oil unless the manual specifically states not to.
When mulching mow in counter clockwise circles, when bagging mow in clockwise circles and in either case overlap about 1/4 the width of the mower for a complete smooth cut. after each mowing allow the mower to cool then tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor (where the air filter is) and wash off the stuff stuck to the bottom, you may have to use a putty knife on the real thick or stubborn stuff. This will reduce corrosion over the years and keep the mower running and mowing efficiently not mention it avoids blowing into the air backteria produced as the clippings of past mowing decay (it makes me sneeze).

Hi re live chat


From the motor pulley it goes inside the 2 idler pulleys, and then outside the drive pulleys.
Although near on 2 years on, I hope you figured this out already...
