This is a new kind of clutch failure the pulley got ripped off. Well not ripped it failed due to fatique I would guess. Not a good design, if I would have noted this I might not have gone with sw20.

To keep the belt on they have two positions.....when deck is high you
use the upper pulley.. Just over 3 years heavy use.

I have a Ferris 36" hydro that I bought (new) last spring.

I've never even used the upper pulley yet. Seems a PITA to have to move the belt up just to raise the deck a bit more.

Obviously, I've not cut any overgrown lots with it set at 3".

Those clutch's need to be babied. Throttle down when disengaging the blades. 3 years is decent though. If you treat them right they last forever.
