Just bought a 36" Gravely walkbehind. The belt that runs around the deck just broke with 8.5 total hours on the mower. Probably 6 hours or so of actual cutting, and never used it in anything more testing than St. Augustine.
Is this normal? I would think I could get a lot longer than that out of one. Anyone know of a reason why it might go?
Here is a picture if it helps:
