My mower had a recall on it's carburetor; apparently some were catching on fire. Have you replaced yours yet if your model is one that was affected?
EDIT: The 300 series gas mowers aren't much lighter than the diesel models; if you want to decrease weight, you would have to go with a 200 series.
Yes your right the pulleys are not common. Someone was having an off day at the factory. My carburetor was not recalled.
As far as the diesels go I might consider a diesel in the 200 series, but I have no plans of buying a new machine in the future, afterall I bought a KUBOTA!
