I dont believe there is a shear pin on your blade spindles, what I have found on these machines is the the spindle nuts on the balde spindles sometimes loosen or wear and no longer squeeze the pulley on the blade spindle. To make this process easy on your self you need to tighten these with a impact wrench. However if you dont have access to a impact wrench you can use hand tools and block the blades you are trying to tighten with a wooden block. Just make sure you block the blade you are trying to tighten

SOURCE: Swisher 60 deck belt breaks after mowing about 15 minutes.

Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. The belt is snapping clean. You are correct in your assessment to what the problem might be. We checked all the above and did not correct problem. We put three washers on top of small idler pulley to bring it down and better align routing. Bought heavier belt at auto parts. Believe the bolt head was touching belt where it routed throught to larger idler pulley."

What direction to tighten the nut on the cutting deck of a Swisher 44inch rough cut trail cutter?


If this is just a mounting bolt it will be right-hand threaded meaning that with you looking at the nut/bolt, the nut will turn clockwise to tighten.
Some blade bolts (and some old car lugs nuts are left-hand thread on one side of the car, as is the left pedal on a bicycle) are left-hand threaded and it can get real exciting til you figure out you hand to turn them counterclockwise to tighten

What causes belt shredding on swisher pull behind mower, 44" cut, 11.5 hp


how old is your trail mower? have you checked the pulleys for the belt drive? possibly the pulleys are loose, or the shafts holding them are worn and wobbling causing a misalignment of the belt, in turn shredding the belt. also check the pulleys to make sure they are smooth, allowing the belt to move cleanly

Change belt


Changing the belt on the swisher 44' rough cut - mine is a model RTB134412v. You have to remove the belt guard (4 bolts) and then the 6 bolts holding the engine on to the deck. Lift (or tilt) the engine up and loop the 1/2"x50" belt (I got a husky replacement belt at tractor supply) through the wire belt guides and around the engine belt drive. Then loop the belt around the larger blade drive. It takes about 30 mins or so. Hope that helps.

They are 1/2" V-belts. The lengths are 47" and 122". I have found that the blue kevlar belts last the longest. http://www.vbelts4less.com has great prices.
