I have a Troy Bilt Super Bronco model 6605 riding lawn mower. When I move the lever to engage the blades, it seems like the pulley's are not moving right because I get a burning smell right on the front main pulley and it seems like the belts are not moving and since they cannot move they burn. Why is this and what can I do?
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
I would check to make sure that that the belt isn’t pinched somewhere around the pulleys. See if they are movable with mower disengaged and off. If they are hard to move, they most likely have pressure keeping them from moving.They would create a burning smell even though they are not moving. The main pulley while engaged does rotate and if the belt is touching but not moving, it will rub enough to make the odor.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Worn or broken blade drive belt – If the riding mower blades are not spinning, the blade drive belt may be worn or broken and unable to engage the blades. If the belt is intact, inspect it to see if it`s loose or slipping on the pulleys then replace it with a new one if necessary.
Failure of any mechanical component, a broken hose, or clogged filter will cause tractor hydrostatic transmission problems. But the most common issue will be the oil itself. In the transmission section of your operator`s manual, you`ll find a section that covers oil viscosity.
The reasons why mower is not moving forward or reverse is that the battery is dead, or due to clogged fuel line. Additionally, malfunctioning transmission, or a broken drive belt, also a faulty spark plug, even when friction wheel isn`t in contact with the friction plate, or damaged Tires.
In most cases, the water pump is binding up, causing the pulley to stop spinning. Replacement of the water pump will fix your problem. The pulley will need to be replaced if there is damage from the belt on it. If there is no damage, then the pulley can be reused.

ANSWER : Hello, The friction disc is the thing to look at. Tip the snow blower onto the front. remove the angled cover to inspect the disc. It is easy to remove and inexpensive to replace. This could need replaceing once a year, or might last for over 10 years, it is dependant on your use. The only other reason you might have for not moving is the wheels are not pinned or the drive belt is off or broken.
