Question and Answers

Q:

mower deck vibrates

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. You are right it could be the belt or mandrels. When the tractor is turned off, look under the deck and check the blades. If the blade is bent, it could cause the vibration. Then grab the blade and move it up and down. It should not have ant play. If it does, the bearings in the mandrel are bad. If the bearings are fine, remove the belt and inspect it. If you fined any bad spots, the belt has to be replaced. While the belt is off inspect the pulleys. here you are just making sure there is nothing stuck in it or bent. Usually we find it is just the belt. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the tractor.

Thank you for your reply. If you have replaced the mandrels and blades, I suspect the problem is going to be the belt. Before you order the belt, double check the condition of all the pulleys. If they are ok just replace the belt. As for the washers, they should go between the top bearing and the pulley. Then the large nut is on top of the pulley. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
