How to adjust a drive belt on a Craftsman riding lawn mower that begins cutting grass before it is engaged? Answered


i recently bought a used riding mower from craftsman. the belt broke on it right after i got it home. i have replaced the belt according to diagrams but it is still to loose to turn the pulleys. i am wondering how can i adjust the tension on it to where i can use the mower

either the belt is to short or the handle that engages it is bent somehow so it stays on. You may want to consult a professional.
