Question about Yard Machines MTD Gold 20 HP Lawn Tractor 13AL795T004

1 Answer

I have a 20 hp MTD Yard Machine with a 46 inch deck. I was cutting some thick overgrown grass today and the belt started smoking. I immediately disengaged the PTO gave it a minute and tried to re-engage it. It immediately smoked again. I don't think the belt has ever been changed. Is the problem as simple as changing the belt or is there something bigger going on?

You should take a picture of how the belt is on there now so you will know how to put it back on. check to see if the blades will spin freely with it not running of course. put your hand under it and spin the blade. if they don't spin you may have something wrapped around the spindles causing the blades not to spin causing the belt to smoke. if the belt is cracked or missing any chunks you may want to replace it. take a picture so you will remember how it goes back on.

SOURCE: Lawn mover will not start, was flipped over

The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.
Good Day.

If there is a dip stick add some oil check the level till you get to the full mark. It should take a little more than a quart. If there is no dip stick then there is an oil fill plug down low on the engine. Fill slowly until the oil reaches the threads in the engine housing (almost overflowing). Be sure to replace the plug or you will have oil everywhere when you start it.

Don't just dump the oil in, check the level as you go!

SOURCE: mtd ride on mower cutter blade belts smoke when

probably a bearing out on one of the pulleys. Disengage turn motor off try spinning each one by hand, you may be able to feel the bad one. You may see discoloration on bad one but probably not with deck on machine.

I have a mtd yard man 22inch / mulcher . My question is how do I get the mower to start mulching ?


For mowers like yours, there are straight cut discharge blades (for bagging the grass) and there are more expensive upswept mulching blades. Any holes in the sides of the deck must be covered to mulch as the blade keeps the grass up in the air under the deck, repeatedly cutting it...over and over..till it falls on the ground.So use a solid deck with the upswept type blade.

I need a belt diagram for my lawn mower>


If you don't have the model number, I just found a diagram for mine by Google, by typing in "MTD 46 inch deck diagram" It took me to a Parts Tree site and right to the diagram I needed. There are slight model differences but for years, the 46 inch, three blade deck has been essentially the same.
