Why does my kubota lawn mower die when i mow in reverse even when i push the button?

Check the blade housing and any build up of waste which can cause too much tension on the blades when they are operating as the unit moves in reverse. The rotor head could could be jamming. With the unit turned OFF try to move the blades clockwise and counter clockwise. There should be equal force required to move the blades in either direction. If not then clear and clean all the area and especially where the spindle comes through the body from the engine. Oil and regrease all required points.

Craftsman push mower won't start

OOOh I don't recomend turning any 4 cycle engine upside down for any reason , i'll bet the starter won't even turn it over now, 1st your gonna need to replace engine oil to proper level , second your gonna need to locate valve (locker) this canbe ident by a small tube comming from it to carb , remove this cover and clean/drain oil from here and last remove spark plug tilt engine that direction and remove as much oil as you can attempt to turn engine over with key off by hand or with jumper on starter several times to get it moving again , clean plug with solvent and reinstall , also reinstall valve cmpt cover and tube , attempt to start might take several tries to get fresh fuel over to cylinder to fire or you might need to reclean plug several times

My machine does not cut the grass evenly. The right blade does not lift the grass the same as the left. New blades, new belts. Deck is clean underneath. Spindle bearings are quiet and blade turns freely....

Does the mechanism that raises & lowers the deck do it evenly at both sides, if not, is there any way of adjusting it? Where there any spacers that you might have missed before fitting the blades?

I have a single cylinder Ranch King riding lawn mower. Model # 133K6796205. Bought in 1993. I need to know what type of oil to put in it? I am also having a problem with the grass collector. Even if...

Hello You can use straight 30 w oil most engine manufactures agree for summer equipment now for winter where it gets cold like in a snow blower the request you to use 5-W30. As far as your grass collector check your blades #1 to see if they are the correct blades for that mower. #2 yes the engine will overheat as the clumped of grass will slow down the blades causing more load on the engine.This is not a uncommon problem wet or damp grass will clump up even if you do not have a grass collector,it will stick under the deck again causing problems.Hopefully this helps.
Thanks Ben

Shaft turns when I try to tighten the mower blade

Remove the bolt, washer and blade. Use a wire brush or sandpaper to clean the end of the shaft and the blade where they make contact. Clean both sides of the washer. Clean the underside of the bolt head and the bolt threads (with a wire brush). Put just a little oil on the bolt threads and on the underside of the bolt head. Reassemble.

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.
