Not every time but most. Not turning full speed but still turning. Any ideas. thnx
Sounds like the clutch break is wearing out. How old is the machine?
5th year using it...3rd full time
Too much tension on the belt would cause it.
Too much belt tension and or the two belt guides at the engine pully too far apart,Engage the deck and adjust the guides to 1/8 inch from the back of the belt with a little foward tilt,This should take care of it.
My DC never had a clutch brake. They would coast down for almost a minute after disengaging. Customers would always walk up and I was always afraid they'd stick their foot under the deck thinking the deck is off.
Maybe you should check the rear guide adjustments also,The blades should stop spining within 30 sec.
You have a spindle with bad bearings. I had the same problem and replaced the bearings. And now no problems with blades that keep turning.
I second the brake pads.
Choppers don't have a blade brake.
