On a manual engage I have some choice as to how fast I push that handle
into the belt, but on my PTO-driven Z the only time I could get away with that
was when it was brand new... I try that nowadays and it just cuts off on me...

Fair enough, on my 48" I also noticed the pulley brake system would lightly rub against the belt,
removing that POS mechanism seems to have helped.
Makes me wonder if the Z has some POS mechanism that get a little too close to it, too.
