I have a x300 (2013?)JD riding lawn mower and can someone give me the deck belt size, part number for a 42 inch? I've ordered the wrong one that said it'd fit but is too small.
Yeah is possible but why would one blade cut so much worse now? I slightly sharpened each of the blades the same. You know the bad cut I'm talking about, it just kind of swirls the grass but doesn't really cut it cleanly. I'm almost just ready to trade it in for a new one. Thanks for the reply, I'll take a good look at it when I get a chance.If one blade is cutting OK it makes the belt the less likely culprit. Maybe swap the blades and see if the bad cut moves to the other side?
Thanks for your reply...No I just did a little filing on the blades while still attached. I think I read to be careful sharpening the blades as they have a certain bevel/cut that if it gets changes will not cut well but I don't think I did that. It's really kinda strange as all I really did was put a new belt on. I have not had time to take a good look at it but soon I will. Thanksmaybe double check that both blades have the same orientation (ie, that one isn't upside down)?
I agree, I'm almost sure it's gotta be that i put the belt on incorrectly, I'll find out soon. Thanks for your input.If the blades didn't come off the deck then that takes me back to the belt, in particular the routing of it. It's not easy because the manual usually doesn't have very good pictures, but I'd look carefully to make sure that the way the belt is routed on the deck matches what they show in the manual.
