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 :

The MTD model number can be found on your equipment`s identification tag, located in one of several places on your machine. This tag is approximately 2“ x3“ in size and also includes the product name, customer service address, and phone number.
The Model number is eleven characters long and is printed on the left side of the Product Identification Label.
John Deere is made by John Deere. There are several hundred names that can be found on the side of an MTD product, but MTD does not make any AYP, Noma, Dynamark, or Sears product.
In 2012 MTD began building Murray brand products which was acquired by Briggs & Stratton Motors in 2005.
MTD`s current (1997 and later) model and serial numbers are generally 11 characters in length. A character could be a number, dash or a letter. If 0 represented all numbers and/or dashes and X represented all letters, the model and serial numbers should appear as follows: 00XX000X000.
Open or close the pulley to increase or decrease the diameter to the calculated size. Then tightly wrap the belt around the pulley again to measure the diameter to assure the right pitch has been achieved. After you`ve measured and adjusted the diameter to the required size, replace the pulley on the shaft.
The driven pulley is adjustable and the drive pulley is controlled by a mechanical action that will open or close the pulley based on rpm requirement. As the driven pulley is opened, the driven pulley will decrease in speed and the opposite, as the drive pulley is closed the driven pulley will increase in speed.
What year was my equipment built? The 5th character of our 11 character product serial numbers will indicate the last number of the year that it was manufactured. Since 5th character in the example is a 4, the year of manufacture would be a year ending in 4.
Headquartered in Valley City, Ohio, our passion has led MTD to be a worldwide leader of outdoor power equipment with facilities in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia producing equipment for both residential and commercial markets.
Their peculiarity lies in the fact that they can be adjusted as needed, either before or after installation, when the slack of the belt or chain requires correction of the tensioning. This is possible thanks to a simple, intuitive system, one or more simple adjustment slots.
A perfectly tight mower belt can rotate without slipping off but not cause the engine to over-exert and overheat. If the belt does not slip off while working and is not producing unfavorable sounds that indicate wearing off of the belt, then that is the perfect tightness for it.

Need photo of routing blade belt for 42” mtd yard mach.
ANSWER : Hi,
I’m sending you a link for you to obtain a users manual for your mower.
To get the correct manual, you will need your Model Number and Serial Number… the website of the link will tell you how to obtain those from your mower.
The manual would be good to have, anyway and should illustrate the correct belt routing and many other specifics.

Mtd 19 In. 173 CC OHV 3-In-1 self propelled. Drive will not engage. Appears as if the belt is too loose even when the drive control bar is depressed all the way. Is this adjustable? This mower hasn’t enough hours on it to stretch the belt, it seems in great shape.
ANSWER : Between the handle and the connection to the drive system, look for adjustment screw or nut and screw on cable. Maybe even check the spring tension, if handle is spring loaded and the spring is stretched it will not engage drive system. If no adjustment to be found then you must get new belt. Good Luck…
