John Deere stopped mowing?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Our John Deere 108 is getting old but has been reliable until last fall. 


The mower stopped mowing, blades won't spin, replaced with new belt same results. 

The new belt is on correctly I double checked with diagram.


The lever got hard to engage right about the time the mower stopped working. Now the lever is loose. Everything is tight except for the belt.


I'm out of ideas and my wife isn't happy with my "wasted time working on the tractor":banghd:

Any chance there is a shear pin on the drive spindle? 


Edit - a quick google showed that some JD residential decks do have shear pins in the drive spindle. Might be worth a look. Could be a simple and cheap fix. I hope so for you!
