    The blade could also be bent on one side, making the set up a bit lob-sided, which would be a good time to get a new blade for the mower.

    Stupid sprinkler heads!

    Or, in my case, a one foot long section of T-bar steel fence pole.

    The new belt cost me 50 bucks.

  1. If you just sharpened the blade and now it's off balance, the blade wasn't properly balanced during sharpening. One side is slightly heavier than the other. If you've recently run over something hard with the mower, the crankshaft is likely bent. If it's the blade, that's an easy fix. Balance it by sharpening one end a bit more. If it's the crankshaft...well, you could get it fixed, but replacing the mower would probably be more cost-effective.

  2. The 2 reasons a mower will shake is from the blade or crankshaft.Try replacing the blade and if it still shakes now with a new blade the crankshaft is probably the problem.To repair this would require a new engine, which would be very expensive.It would be more economical to purchase a new mower in this case. If you would like to have a technician check it first to determine for sure, you can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out or to find the nearest repair center.
