SOURCE: 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?

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. The belt is snapping clean. You are correct in your assessment to what the problem might be. We checked all the above and did not correct problem. We put three washers on top of small idler pulley to bring it down and better align routing. Bought heavier belt at auto parts. Believe the bolt head was touching belt where it routed throught to larger idler pulley."

What is the best way and how to remove mower deck for cleaning


Why do you think you need to remove the whole deck just to clean it and sharpen the blades? What kind of design would that be, manufacturers wouldn't sell too many lawn mowers if you had to remove the whole deck just to do what you're asking

Swisher xzt 60.. while mowing grass pushing the arms forward the blades slow way down.. how can i fix this issue? I just put new deck and engine belts on..


Swisher is proprietary in the service arena for information. The most common cause of the issue that you are describing is belt slippage. This could be due to oversize belt length. improper tension, loose pulleys etc. Also when you look at an area that you have mowed after one day, if the tips of the grass are yellow, the blade is not sharp enough.

Mower is the Swisher ZT 2660 runs great. Blades slow then stop during cutting, I changed belts (drive & deck). Last year you advised it maybe the electric clutch. Question is that a do it yourself...


I have this mower and had this same problem. It turned out the bolts holding the motor to frame backed out and were allowing the motor to tilt, and then the belts would slip and burn up. Check all motor bolts for tight, and if not tight change bolts and lock washers. Lock washers were not originally on these mowers.

Check the all wiring from the engage blade button back to the electric clutch for worn spots that may be grounding out on the frame.

Deck plugs up, will not discharge, especially in taller grass, tried different blades nothing works.


the one thing I have noticed with my swisher 60" is my grass have to be dry or the deck will clog and because of the mulching deck it is not recommended to cut tall grass.
