My 2010 Ferris IS3100z with 61" icd deck has 75 hours and threw belt at least 5 different times before belt finally broke yesterday. Checked idler spring tension length each time after reinstalling belt...it was correct. Would happen on first engagement at highest mower setting.... except for when belt broke...was just mowing.
Called dealer and there is a 3 week backlog for warranty work.They service alot different brands.
He further informed me the belt would not be covered under warranty so I could purchase the belt to keep mowing.
They would put me on list to look at mower and call me in 3 weeks for problem that MIGHT be covered under warranty.. I believe a mower belt should last more than 75 hours.
Really cant wait 3 weeks ...not going to purchase belt and take chance of weakening or compromising belt integrity because back pulley may be the culprit?
The mower has been great except for this glitch.
Any suggestions would be apprciated!
Aroddy could you please provide part number for Omni belt and larger idler pulley?
Need to order from you or someone?
