The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt closest to the blower assembly. This is the blower drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower) With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't. The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) You can get parts (the new belt) through your local Ariens dealer or jackssmallengines.com Feel free to ask any other questions.

Usually the reason a mower deck is throwing its belts is there is a bearing that is starting to sieze up in one of the quill assemblies, which is the assembly that the blade is attached to . Either that or one of the belt tensioner pulleys is starting to go bad, easiest way to check this is remove the drive belt, take off the cover over the tension belt and remove that belt know check all moving parts for tightness or excessive looseness. Hope This Helps You Don
my cub cadet used to throw the cutter belt too....till i took the drastic step of adding a bit more tension to the belt. this was achieved by drilling another hole on either side of the chassis about 1 3/4 inches to the rearward of the machine and moving the lift arms to the new holes. Viola, more belt tension, and furthermore there is now no interference between the tensioner and the rearmost run of the belt.
outdoor power equipment.com website will show you the diagram you must type in your model and brand? most of the time the pulleys get bent and out of alignment then the belt twists off once that happens it impossible to reuse old belt ? just make sure it lines up and the tensioner is working?
I fixed my mower stalling issues on the L111 by loosening the gas cap. I ultimately drilled a hole in the gas cap and screened the hole. Sounds ridiculous but without that venting the engine would run approximately 20 mins and die. It was also much more difficult to start the next time. Something else to pass along to whomever might view this... I replaced the cranking battery with a battery that had allot more cranking amps and I no longer had hard start issues ( this was after I vented the gas cap). Hope this helps.
You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
