Question about Swisher Zero-Max 60-Inch 26HP Zero Turn Radius Riding Mower
A mower with 35 hours should still be under warranty, and a belt shouldn't break at 35 hours unless you ran over something that got caught in the belt. I would take this unit back to the dealer - it is their responsibility to repair or replace your mower.
Here is my advice on how to change a main hydro belt. To get enough room to work, jack up the back of the mower (put blocks in front of the front wheels first) then make sure the back end stays up with jackstands under the chassis, or use bricks or blocks under the rear wheels. No matter what, you'll be laying on your back working in a cramped space. So don't tackle it if it's the dealer's responsibility.
If you've replaced the belt but can't get it tight, check that the idler arm spring is hooked up properly so the idler pulley presses in on the belt to tension it.

Hello, I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP as deserved. Thank you! Dane
My name is Dane and I am going to try to help you solve your problem. I've done a little research on this mower and I believe your problem could be your drive belt. Swisher Part number 6046 which is a 47" belt. I have found your operators manual at the following link:
I didn't know if you had the 06-046 model or the 07-152, but the belts are the same for each. Once a belt becomes worn they will give the symptoms you are discribing. You can replace the belt per this manual and all should be well.
I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP as deserved. Thank you! Dane
