Question and Answers


How do I adjust the brakes on my lawn tractor? Model 917-286450


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Locate the brake rod that connects onto the right side of the transmission. There should be a nut that adds/removes tension to the coil spring on the rod. Turn the nut to give the spring less pressing tension on the lever it connects to (on the transmission) and this should cause the brakes to ease up some. There are some great YouTube videos you could watch to get a feel for the procedure before tackling it. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
