    haha! ya mine stalled for good that day! im not sure if it was just a coincidence or if that's what actually did the damage. the grass has been long and very wet lately...so maybe that was the problem. I also get a lot of grass build up under the deck cover where the belt is...:confused:

    I popped the drive belt on my Ferris shortly after I bought it.
    I was about 300 feet (with slopes in between) away from my truck when it happened, so there was no "pushing it" to the trailer.

    I think I hit something like a low-cut stump - not sure now, but it was dead in the water. I was freaking out because I had never used a WB before and had no real understanding of how things worked on it yet.
    I took off the deck cover and saw the belt had popped off the pulley. I tried prying the thing back on with no luck. I decided to call the dealer and see if they had any suggestions. He was nice enough to help me out by suggesting a way to get the belt back on by using a rope on one of the springs to pull it back to get the belt on. It worked.
    Haven't had it come off again since.
