Mower blade direction

Recommended Posts

I have had this happen to me more than one time. Do not feel bad about getting the belt on the wrong direction. Maybe you can consider cutting a discharge shute on the other side and sharpening both sides of the blades ;-).

Thankfully my 716H came with a sticker on the mower deck showing how to route the belt.[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]

Help!! I just bought a 3112h with lots of cool attachments. Drove 12 hours to pick it up, when I got home I ran it over the lawn to see how nice the lawn was going to look an..... looks bad! Barely cutting at all. After some inspection on this full restored jem, I notice the blades are spinning the wrong direction!!!!! Can anyone help?? Kirby

Check to see if the deck's drive belt is twisted in the same direction as the one shown below. Sounds like it is not, and you'll need to take it off and reverse it ... http://www.simpletractors.com/images/mower1_ops/figure3_small.jpg

Backward turning blades are considered a annual rite of spring at our house.Audrey ,my favorite B210 operator, always needs a good laugh after a cold PA winter,but I usually fail to see the humor. Jim

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
