    Hi all, I just got a 737 Ztrak and it was a demo. It now has only 40 hours on it and i was doing a job and a belt snapped. The one that runs the blades. How could this be? ( please dont just say "buy an Ex") Could it be the way i start the pto?

    Engage blades at low throttle. I have found that blade belts can break anytime. I had a time two years ago when the day after I put a new blade belt on my Toro it broke, I had it again this spring too, but a week later.
