Can I Fix My Wide Deck Lawn Mower Myself?

You may be able to fix some wide deck lawn mower problems yourself. Visit our Riding Mower and Lawn Tractor Repair Help if the wide deck is on a riding mower. If your walk-behind mower is equipped with a wide deck, visit our Walk-Behind Mower Repair Help for advice and troubleshooting tips on finding and fixing the most common problems.

What to do When Your Wide Deck Lawn Mower Deck Won’t Cut Grass

If your mower starts and runs but the blades aren’t turning, it could be the blade belt. Check the belt for damage; a cracked or broken belt should be replaced.

If your mower has manual blade actuators, inspect the belt idler pulley, the blade clutch cable and the clutch lever for damage. On mowers with a PTO switch to activate the blades, the PTO switch or the electric clutch could be the problem. Another possible cause for the blades not spinning is a damaged mandrel pulley.

You can find more information and troubleshooting tips for riding mowers in our DIY repair help content Why won’t my riding mower cut grass?

What to do When Your Wide Deck Lawn Mower Cuts Grass Unevenly

If the grass looks uneven after cutting, check the pattern of the cut. Cuts that look like slanted stair steps could indicate uneven tire inflation. Inflate each tire to the manufacturer’s recommendation and level the mower deck.

Alternating stripes of taller and shorter grass could be the speed of the mower. Slow down while mowing. If a slower speed doesn’t correct the cut, the blade could be worn. Try sharpening or replacing the blades. If the grass looks tattered or ragged, replacing or sharpening the blades should also produce a cleaner cut.

For more details and further tips on walk-behind mowers with wide decks, see our Why does my lawn mower cut unevenly? For riding mowers, check out our content Why is my riding mower not cutting evenly?

What to do When Your Wide Deck Lawn Mower Vibrates

Vibration in the mower deck could be as simple as debris caught inside the deck or in the pulley. Vibration can also be caused by an unbalanced blade. Try rebalancing the blades to see if this corrects the issue. If not, check the belt, pulley and mandrel for damage.

The vibration could also mean loose bolts or nuts. Try tightening the fasteners on the deck to see if this fixes the problem.

Excessive vibration from the deck when the blades are engaged could indicate a problem with the blade drive system.
