Deck belt engages but wont stay on


Make sure the belt keepers around the blade spindle pulleys are in place they are designed to keep the belts from coming off the pulley adjust to about 1/8-1/4 inches from the pulley...also make sure the belt tensioner is tight on the drive belt when engaged if it isn't your belts probably need renewed..good luck...

Drive belt keeps twisting and coming off pulleys


Could be the pully are not inline, this would throw the belt when you engage the drive. Could be the wrong belt fitted. Could be wrong tension setting. The twisting element could be that the belt is damaged or incorrectly tensioned.
Many operators consider changing from V belts to Toothed belts because there is less squealing, better efficiency and far fewer disengaging problems

I have a troy bilt pony and the drive belt to engage to blades keeps coming off. I have replaced the belt and the pully what else could it be?


well i would take a long look at the spring which holds the tension pulley in place. if it is weak, or not connected correctly, there will be inadequate tension and the belt can come off. I would also take a look at whatever fasteners keep the deck in place as if it is not kept to the rear, there again will be too much play in the deck belt.

I need to tighten belt for the mower deck, how is that done? it is a 2004 craftsman 17.5HP 42 " deck. Can you help me


Each of the pulleys on top of the deck should have tensioners. These tensioners are usually the type which have a bolt for you to tighten while attached to the pulley. While you tighten the bolt, the pulley puts tension on the belt.

Mower Belt Won't Engage


The fact is that belts don't stretch. They wear down on the sides, causing them to ride deeper in the pulleys and they APPEAR to be longer. Check belt "width" to see if it is less than one half inch. Most craftsman riders use half-inch (AKA: "A section") belts.

I have an older mtd yard machine that throws the belt whenever the engine is started. It appears that the belt is very tight the blades turn free when the belt is not connected so they are not locked up....


I had an MTD riding mower, when the mower started the belt should not have been engaging the blade spindle. They're is a clutch lever which goes down to a simple spring tensioner which engages the blade. You may have the tensioner misaligned which will allow the belt to be desheaved. My old manual told me to hold a straight edge along the engine pulley and the driven pulley, like on a table saw. There should be some deflection in the belt, 1/2" over two feet.

Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the blades to cut the blades turn But they do not engage NO Power.Blades Turn But Not enough to cutthe grass.


Hi Jeff, If you look at the deck, one or more of those pulleys is a tensioner, It pushes against the belt to tighten it, The rest of the pulleys can be identified by the fact that they only have a bolt through the middle, whereas the tensioner is mounted on an adjustable arm with a slot to allow adjustment. It should also be the only one that the belt doesn't go around the pully it just pushes on one side.If the tensioner arm is all the way to the end of the slot, the belt is streched and will need replaced but sounds like it may have come loose. Some of these decks also have a spring on the tensioner arm and those come off from a stick or other debris. Check it out and if you have a problem let me know and I will try to come up with a diagram. If your mower is that new there should be a belt diagram on the deck. i will need a model number of the deck or mower for that. Good luck!
