Question and Answers

Q:

Lawn tractor blades not engaging Pxt175g42

A:

Thank you for your question.   I am sorry you are having a problem with the Poulan Tractor model PXT175G42.  I assume the engine will continue to run when you attempt to engage the deck. If this is what is happening I recommend checking the belt routing first. If the belt is fine, have someone move the lever while you watch the idler arm on the deck. The cable should tighten up, move the idler and tighten the belt.  If the cable is fine and the idler it is not moving, the pivot is likely rust. To fix this loosen the pivot bolt and soak the pivot with WD-40. Then work it back and forth until it is loose. Once free, tighten the bolt and check the operation. I hope this is helpful.  Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the mower.   Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct.    If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a  Sears technician.  Here is a link for the website:  Sears Home Services.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Steve,

Husqvarna home products made your tractor. This same manufacturer makes Poulan and Craftsman tractors that have a model number that starts with 917. The manufacturer usually will not change the main parts of the tractors for exclusive labels. They usually put different options that only that model has. I am almost positive those baggers will fit your tractor. To be sure, you can contact the bagger manufacturer at 1-866-576-8388. Tell them you want to know what Craftsman baggers will fit your tractor.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Steve,

I am sorry. I was working on so many fit ups lately I guess I spaced it off that they only make our snow equipment know. I ran the number of the mower deck to one of our models. The bagger that fits the tractor will be 24897. I posted a link to that bagger below. Just click on the link to be taken to the bagger.

Thank you for using Manage My Life! Mark T.
