122 PTO squeels

Postby tinnerjohn » Fri Jun 14, 2019 6:22 pm

When I engage the PTO for the mower deck there is a high pitched squeal momentarily. Is this a sign I missed something when I lubed it, it needs a shot of belt dressing or normal? Thanks, John

Not normal unless you are starting out with the mower deck in the uncut grass.

Check the condition of the mower deck belts, deck spindles. Plenty of grease in all deck spindles.

Edit: Worn deck belts would be my first guess. Deck belts usually need to be replaced every couple of years, even the premium quality belts.

My second guess, tension adjustment of the main deck drive belt.

2nd edit. In the process of repairing the spindle on a 42" deck for a 105. I'm up to $210- so far, just one spindle. Need to purchase more narrow framed Cub Cadets for mower parts.
