  1. Re: Always ending up with strip of uncut grass near discharge side?

    Ah, that would make sense. I haven't been able to mow for the last 3 weeks due to rain, so it was pretty high. When I mowed previously (first mow of the season) the grass was much shorter and I...
  2. Always ending up with strip of uncut grass near discharge side?

    Sorry if this is the wrong section, but it is landscaping related :smile:

    Anyway, whenever I mow it seems half the time I end up with a long strip of grass that isn't being full cut - this is on...
  3. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    Got everything back up and running pretty perfectly. I apparently adjusted the clutch wrong and didn't measure between the two actual plates and instead measured between a plate and the metal frame,...

    Got my correct belt. I adjusted the clutch as noted, but think it may still be too loose. How freely should it spin when turned? The clutch as well as all the blades turn very easily with the belt...

    Thanks. I have to ask though, what does a rocker cover look like?
  6. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    I ordered an original belt versus the generic one. I did at least get things going enough to mow today. I can't engage the blades on the storage (highest) setting, but the others work well enough. ...

    Thanks - glad I actually own a set of feeler gauges.

    Far too late for not touching them. Any idea how freely the clutch should spin? Might help with adjusting them back.

    Yes, without the belt the arm moves and sits next to the other pulley.

    I...

    Pretty sure it is on the right way - same way it has been for a number of years.

    I did find that the clutch was seized because I tightened the 3 screws around it. I guess when those are...

    Seems the final issue is from my replacement belt not fitting. While it may be the same length, the rest of the dimensions don't seem correct and so the idler pulley is hitting the frame.

    Yes, they are correct. The manual and the deck diagram are the same.
  12. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    This is on a 3 spindle deck and no more adjustment that I could find. This only happens on that long run going to that one spindle - nothing else has such a long distance between them.
  13. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    Okay, got everything bad together. At first the thing would instantly die when the blades were engaged - I had to actually run it for a while without blades and now it seems ok.

    Belt shaking is...
  14. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    My manual says to grease all the points every 25 hours I believe. That includes the front casters and all 3 spindles.
  15. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    While waiting on the parts I do have another question - how do you know how much grease to put into each grease point? I have just been doing two pumps. I also know you need to grease the new...
  16. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    Okay, so it seems they don't sell this at the Lowes around me anymore - replaced with Craftsman.

    Took the belt back off and tested the blades - no wobble, but I did notice that while the center...
  17. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    Up too high to fit in there. As much as I try, I cannot unloosen the bolt holding that thing on - tried both directions and barely get any movement - probably why it ended up being in that position.
  18. Mower deck Re: Husqvarna Z254 - belt shakes very badly and engine tries to die when blades engag

    If I posted a picture, would it be possible to tell if the position is correct?

    Just put on new blades, so can at least remove that from the equation. I bought a mower lift to make maintenance a little easier so I will check this stuff out this weekend - or try. Not sure on...

    This is for a 2015 model - always run pretty well, but last year there was a lot of vibration when the blades were engaged - you can see the belt vibrating a lot, especially on the left side.
