Please help on L306 Woods Belly Mower for Farmall B Tractor

8 posts in this topic

Hi, can someone please help me on a Woods L306 belly mower that I am trying to mount on a Farmall B tractor. I got it all hooked up with all the original brackets that are for the B tractor using the side pto and it is turning on a counter clock wise rotation on me is there any simple way to change the rotation on this. I have a small woods booklet that shows the woods L306 belly mower mounted on it. Please Please any help would be very appreciated. Thanks Bill

Did the mower come off a B farmall? The Woods mower made for the B Farmall turns the opposite direction that some of the other Woods mowers.

If it came off a B Farmall you could have the belt on wrong where it goes between the spindles.

I have the owners manual for the Woods mower but the page with the belt installation will not scan good.

I'm running the L 306 on a Farmall A. I'll check rotation when I get home today. Maybe they are supposed to turn counterclockwise. Is the sharp edge of the blade leading? I have all the belt diagrams too. I could mail those to you. E-mail would loose too much detail.

Can't help on info for the B but remember similar problem with Cub's. Guys would break the belt and come in for expensive new one. Sometimes they would leave and then come back and say "I found a much cheaper belt that fits fine but now mower not cutting for crap!" We would tell them to get longer belt so they could put a twist in it or sharpen the dull side of the blade because it was running backwards.

So this could be your problem? Good luck!

The cub ran the pto opposite to every other tractor. If the mower was set for a cub then it would be backward to your b.

Woods L series mowers rotate backwards. They should throw the grass to the left. (also the bolts holding the blades on are left handed threads.)
