    Any time you use a sulky with a belt drive you will burn belts fast.
    I would use some belt dressing at the first sign of slipping. Once they start to slip it seems they can wear out fast. Belt drives and sulkies are just not a great combo unless you are on flat lawns or weigh 90 lbs.

    Brian,
    Check out my thread "Dual belts on a Toro WB". I haven't figured out how to link up to other threads. I posted a pic of the dual belts. Hope this helps.
