Why does my push mower vibrate so bad?
A bad vibration in your lawnmower might be the result of a damaged or out-of-balance blade. The tip of your mower blade can be moving at nearly 220 MPH! At these kinds of speeds, it doesn’t take much damage to throw a blade out of balance, causing a severe vibration.
What causes a riding lawn mower to shake?
Deck vibration can be caused by an unbalanced blade, worn pulley or mandrel, bad blade belt or debris caught inside a pulley. Loose nuts or bolts on the pulleys, mandrels or blades can also cause vibration. Remove the mower deck and re-tighten all fasteners. Check for wear on pulleys, mandrels and blades.
