It sounds like the blades are not rotating freely and the belt is slipping in the pulley/s. Check the blades for freedom of movement and replace any bearings that appear tight. It could also be the belt tension that is too slack and the belt is slipping when the blades come up against a load. Check the belt tension. Your should be able to turn the belt through no more than about 90 deg with some resistance on a long belt run if the tension is correct. Remember to remove the spark plug lead before attempting any work on the blades etc, and please rate this response.

Yardman troubleshooting


More than likely the bearings on the mower deck that your lawnmower blades bolt to are seized or are close to it .Disconnect the negative battery cable from battery before you get anywhere near the underside where the blades do there business. Better yet, remove battery completely, and have it tested at AUTOZONE for free. While battery is out , check free spin of deck blades. Any resistance or grinding while blades are disengaged >debris , fence wire , rope tarp, etc.. or bearing failure. [DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS PROBLEM AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS INJURY, I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND TAKING IT TO BE CHECKED AT INDY SHOP. ... ALTHOUGH COMMON SENSE WILL GO FAR IF YER MECHANICALLY INCLINED. .. YOU TUBES VIDS ARE A GOOD STARTING POINT. NOTE:BEARINGS CAN BE REPLACED,, WHEREAS A HAND OR A FOOT ...AINT AS EASY. Good luck

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

I need a diagram of how to put the Blade belt on my Yardman 42' riding lawnmower


Yeah, these belts can seem impossible to figure out. There are idler pulleys that press against the back of the belt. The routing is sometimes not obvious. Do a search for your particular model.

My idea is not about the belts, but is about the deck. If the tensioning mechanism on the deck is getting stuck in an intermittant position than the belt may be just tight enough to turn blades while slipping through the pulleys, this may cause enough friction to start melting your belts. If this is the case you will have to remove your mower deck and see what is preventing the mechanism from functioning properly.

Smoke when blades engaged on yardman 42'' yard tractor


The oil on your pulley could definitely be the culprit. You need friction in order for your belts to work properly.

I cannot get any speed from my MTD/Yardman riding lawnmower. I have change the belts. It will engage But just will NOT go very fast. It is a sem-automatic.


Your yardman mower is a hydrostatic model which uses a small hydraulic pump to turn a hydraulic drive motor.Check there is sufficient oil in the transmission. Check the forward/reverse lever travel, and adjust as needed to increase the "throw" to move the swashplate in the hydraulic motor.
