Why does my lawn mower blade keep coming loose?

If you don't have the key in the slot or the key is broken the blade will come loose. Some adapters have the key built into the adapter. I am with Rivets on this, damaged or faulty blade adapter installation, also the fly wheel key could be sheared causing the mower to kick back.

Why does my riding mower keep throwing the belt?

The drive belt may come off a riding mower because it is damaged or loose. Even when it does not fall off, such a belt poses dangers. When loose, the belt may slip, resulting in friction that, if it creates enough heat, can lead to a fire in the mower's engine.

What does the drive belt do on a riding mower?

The ground drive belt connects the engine crankshaft to the transaxle pulley to drive the rear wheels. If the belt breaks, the lawn tractor won't move. If the belt is worn, the lawn tractor moves sluggishly because the belt slips on the pulley.

Can you turn a riding lawn mower on its side?

Simply take a few safety precautions (such as disconnecting the spark plug), turn the mower onto its side, and start working. Good luck turning a riding lawn mower onto its side, however. These heavy-duty machines weigh hundreds of pounds. You can seriously injure yourself or damage the mower if you do it incorrectly.
