Thats higher than giraffe pussy.
Into the hooch again, dunno if this will work,
Does anyone else see all the wrong here?
You should set preload to 2/3ish of total stroke. Dampening has pretty much nothing to do with ride height. It just dampens the rebound, why it's also called rebound. Suspension geometry matters. I dropped my wrr's forks down in the triple clamps n it started getting a little wobble. If you make the wrong adjustments it can screw you.
There's more to why I had a problem with the whole post but that's really the worst of it.
Fucking $39 belt for the mower shredded itself two minutes into the second lap. No deck issue, just a belt that didn’t want to live up to its potential.
A friend of mine had belt issues with a Husqvarna lawn tractor going through drive (not deck) belts and the cheap stamped and spot welded frame had broke, causing the trans-axle to shift out of alignment. I fixed it.
Everything on the deck is good. No shit bearings, pulley’s are in good shape. No reason I can find outside of the belt. My theory is that some of the longitudinal belts broke along one edge causing it to stretch on one side, and start to roll/twist. I’ll put a new set of blades on, new belt, and check all the bearings again.
mower only has ~40 hours. I usually put a set of blades on, pull the old ones, sharpen and balance them a couple times a season. A belt usually goes 20 hours on the deck.
Maybe a commercial mower is in order before the spring, but I really don’t want to spend commercial mower money
We actually had a husky push mower back in Europe... Our lawns however are measured in square inches....
Yeah, I mow about 2-1/2 acres. Come on!
BTDT too. Up in Illinois, my folks had 5 1/2 acres of which two were grass and the rest densely wooded acres that needed a metric ton of work.. Guess where my wood splitting prowess came from???
What brand and model mower is it? What brand of belt? Kevlar? Are you sure you didn't miss getting it "under/behind" the guide that keeps it in the pulley? My belts last years and I have acres to mow too.
yeah. It’s routed correctly. Just a bad belt. All factory belts, and I normally change them out of PM vs failure. There’s quite a bit of sand here so I don’t let stuff go to far. I over maintain everything because I hate failures
I also tend to use this one to push back underbrush from time to time. It’s REALLY outside of its comfort zone then
Ok, carry on...I guess you have had a case of bad luck then. Mine get a workout here too as I have a lot of sand for my large yard too. That really eats up the blades and the mower deck. The good thing is my neighbor always tears his up and I get all his old ones when he gets a new one. Some need connecting rods, others the decks are full of holes. I have a small lawn mower junk yard. I always grab the push mowers when they are by the road and 5 out of 6 times it's just the carb plugged up. I haven't bought a new lawn mower since the old Craftsman rider (over 20 years old) that I am rebuilding now due to an oil leak on the lower crank seal and likely some other internal goodies like the sump as it is probably out of round on the bearing surface. I already got a new one and will buy the rest as I go along...
Here is the old Crafstman rider. When you get older you find easier ways to change the drive belt.
And a nice old heavy duty rider that I got from a friend that was going to take it to the scrap yard. This one ran when he gave it to me but he kept the battery. It also has a transaxle that looks like the rear end of a car and that has some issues with some gears and broken teeth or some issues with shifting into/staying in gear. This is a keeper and a project even if it just hauls my dump cart around because of the lack of a mower deck.
And some more...
I love the old rear engine mowers.
add a bagger and it’s wheelie city
My internet neighbor got the bright idea off the internet to pour bacon grease on the dog shit in his yard.
Now my yard is full of dog shit that smells like dog shit and bacon dipped in dog shit.
