make sure the pulleys are aligned and then check for burrs or sharp steel cuts on the pulleys as for the battery check for a short or bare wire.

you probably have the belt on wrong, check your manual to see if you have it on right.

SOURCE: mower blade belts keep breaking on my toro riding

When you go down to the local belt store, tell them you want a green stripe belt (heavy duty for lawn mowers), it costs more but lasts 3 times as long. Might also check the blade swing on your mower, if it spins for a number of revolutions and doesn't growl, then you know the bearings are good, and you are not using a good quality mower belt

SOURCE: Snapper Zero Turn mower. Blade will not engage. Any suggestions?

I am not sure what type of blade engagement mechanism you have (ex. clutch, tensioner/idler pulley, etc...) but make sure that the blades can spin freely with the belt taken off of their pulleys. It could very well be that one of the pulley bearings is seized.

SOURCE: How do you replace a drive belt on a husqvarna cz4817

i just replaced my belt on a cz 4817. On one side there should be a bar with a spring on it. If you sitting in it it will be on you left side mounted on the deck itself. Push the bar in for about an inch and then up over the lip thats the belt tension spring. you should now be able to remove your old and put the new on. If you need the diagram to show you how to lace the new belt let me know and i will email it to you. good luck

Is it possible to tighten a loose belt on my cub cadet RZT-54 ZERO TURN RIDER.model number 17AFCACK009


HI,
I assume you are reffering to the mower deck pulley...however, the belt that drives the two hydraulic motors work the same way as deck pulley system.
First, there is no manual adjustment on the pulley system. Rather there is a spring loaded pivot arm to which an idle pulley is fastened to. The spring pulls the pivot arm in such a way the it forces the idle pulley to keep the belt tight at all times. The same setup is used on the ground drive belt.
Sometimes these springs become disconnected or break so that no tension is placed on the belt to keep it tight.
Check the tensioner spring to ensure that it is connected properly and applying tension to the belt. Otherwise, you may have the incorrect belt installed, the belt is routed incorrectly or the belt may be stretched out and need replacing.
Here is a diagram to clarify, the spring is the dark black item;

Mower drive belt keeps breaking on h5518 honda


They may make a Kevlar belt that fits your mower, which may stop the breaking. But may cost twice the amount of the original belt. Seems like it may be worth it to me?

Belt for self popelled mower keeps breaking? Cannot keep a new belt on pulley


Check that the pulley isn't seizing up and causing the belt to snap, also be sure you loosen up the self propelled mechanismn by spraying down with WD 40, too much belt tension can cause this, but it rather seems like the belt pulley seizes and the engines drive pulley keeps turning causing the belt to overheat and break or stretch and come flying off.

Swisher 60 deck belt breaks after mowing about 15 minutes.


Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?
