Your Dixon riding mower and tractor makes your lawn the pride of the neighborhood. Help your riding mower to keep doing its job by giving it regular maintenance and repairing it on those rare occasions when it stops working properly. If your mower seems to be working but isn't effectively cutting your grass, follow these simple troubleshooting steps to find the problem.
A riding lawn mower engine needs regular tune-ups, just as your automobile does. Give your mower a full tune-up to keep it in prime working order, especially when your mower is coming back into operation after the winter. Replace the air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plug and oil. These riding mower parts are readily available at Sears PartsDirect.
Problems with the belts on the mower deck are often the reason a lawn mower doesn't cut grass properly. Check the drive belt if your mower is having trouble moving forward or going uphill. Reinstall the belt if it came off its track, or replace it if it looks worn.
If your riding mower is managing to cut the grass but cuts unevenly, the riding mower tractor mandrel assembly may be the problem. This part may also be involved if you hear unexpected noises coming from the engine. Contact Sears PartsDirect for lawn tractor repair help if you think you need to replace the mandrel assembly.
