Bent crankshaft, or the blade is not installed properly

under the mower above the blade should be a allenhead plug

the blade is attached to the mower with one bolt, or possibly two additional bolts with nuts, to a bracket on the bottom of the engine drive shaft under the mower deck. turn the mower on its side towards the carberator (so gas won't drip into cylinder), use gloves and remove bolts. be sure to install the blade with the cutting edge to the counter-clockwise side,looking from the bottom.

there a gears in side the box under the mower. also a belt drives the gears. the belt is connected to the shaft that the blade is on.

I changed the blade belt on my Murray mower. Now one blade stops and goes. If I lower the deck the blade stop . What did I do wrong?

Make sure that mower is off, drain the gas from the system, unplug the spark plug, take off the blade, then replace the blade that you take off.

That would depend entirely on the particular Toro mower you're referring to.

Self propelled mowers are not self driven. The mower has a safety switch which does not allow the unit to turn on itself. A person is required to turn on and steer the mower.

A rotary mower is a mower with a blade

You can change the oil on troy bilt self propelled mowers by making sure, first of all, that the engine is turned off. Remove the oil and replace it with fresh oil.

I've never owned a self-propelled mower, but I would think there would be a lever to engage the wheels for self-propulsion. If the lever is in neutral. I would think you would be able to pull the mower backwards on all four wheels. If there is no lever and the mower is self-propelled at all times, you would have to raise the wheels that are propelled in order to pull the mower backwards.

On my Craftsman Lawn Mower, I have to raise the lawn mower or tilt it on it's side, and underneath where the blade is, there is a large drain plug. Take it off and catch the oil. This is a great time to clean the underside of your lawn mower and either sharpen or replace your blade.....Nothing cuts better than a sharp blade!

A Razor, a lawn mower, and a rollerblade all include a blade. A razor has a blade. A lawnmower has a blade A rollerblade has no actual blade but it has the word blade in its name.

Before removing the blade make sure the spark plug is disconnected. Then remove the nut that attaches the blade to the deck.

For a walk behind rotary lawn mower:Remove spark plug wire (to prevent an accidental start)Tip mower up at about a 45 degree angle (have the air filter up to prevent getting oil in it)Using a wrench turn the blade bolt counter-clock wise to remove the blade (if the blade is difficult use a block of wood to wedge between the blade and the deck to prevent it from spinningReverse the procedure to reinstall

Set the mower on a work tabletop to access the blade(s). If it is a riding mower, put it on ramps. Locate the bolt(s) that secure the blade. Hold the blade in place with one hand while removing the bolt(s) with the other hand using a ratchet and appropriate socket or wrench. Pay careful attention to which side of the blade is down or which way is up so you can reinstall the same way,

Usually a short length of 2x4 can be used to wedge and hold the blade to loosen the bolt.

Not necessarily when to change; but when to sharpen mower blades: The easiest way to know is by observing the way the grass is cut. A sharp blade will make a "clean cut" on the grass blades, whereas a dull blade will "tear" the grass and leave a "ragged" appearance. As far as when to change out the blades, there is no set time interval, you just have to visually evaluate the condition of the blade (bent, badly worn, warped, etc.) to determine when to change. If your mower uses 2 blades, it would be wise to change both blades at the same time.
