Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

Lawn tractor jerks when driving across lawn

Installed a new lower drive belt on an mtd yard machine lawn tractor and now when driving across lawn the tractor jerks every few yards like the belt is slipping and recatching. I ordered the belt part no 954 - 0467 and it appears to be the correct one and it appears I have installed it correctly from all the diagrams I can find. Do you have to install an upper drive belt too even though it does not appear worn? Any suggestions? mtd yard machine model # 13bk608g12484526 17 **** power 42inch deck

Hi there. It sounds to me like you have a worn drive belt. Go to enter your model numbers in the center field and download your manual. It will show how to remove and re-fit a new belt. Take the old belt with you when purchasing the new one. Hope this helps
