If you have a self-propelled lawn mower or a lawn mower, your lawnmower will have a blade rubber drive belt or multiple belts to transfer power from the engine to the blade. Sometimes these belts begin to wear, or encounter other problems. Today, we will discuss possible possible problems with the blade rubber drive belt and its symptoms, and how to solve these problems.
The rubber drive belts can be loosened during operation, thrown from the pulley and loosened. Once the belt falls off, the blade will stop spinning, and when you try to push the lawn mower, you will notice the resistance because the self-propelled function disappears. You will also hear the engine speed faster - the belt, shaft and blade are not resistant. Driving the belt off may damage the wires inside the belt, as well as the main body of the lawn mower and the engine.
Sometimes during use, the rubber drive belts slides with rotation, does not get the proper traction, and sometimes causes the blade to jump or lag. In most cases, this is because the grass is high or wet. High grass is hard to pass, which means that the blade will have more resistance when spinning, causing the belt to slip. Wet grass also offers more resistance while water is lubricated.
You should always look at your rubber drive belts and see how it is worn. If you seem to change the belt more frequently than expected, you may have problems below the deck. All of the drive belts are worn to some extent, so the longer the time, the greater the degree of wear, which causes sensitive parts in your lawn mower to malfunction or damage.
The blade drive belt on the lawnmower is the last thing that usually happens when the lawnmower begins to fail, but it may be one of the main causes of the difficulties in the mowing process. Make sure you keep up with it and if necessary, bring it to the professional if you feel the level of maintenance you need to handle the level that you can handle.
