    Well, I had my first negative experience with my plugr 855 today. The drive belt broke in a back yard and this damn thing has maybe 2-3 hours on it. I'm going to absolutely lose it if I get to my dealer in the morning and they don't have one in stock. Has anyone else had the drive belt go out this soon?

    no, but they can be bought at any hardware store. just get the size and go get one cheaper!

    have had the hydro go out on us so we thought, but the pulley on top shot its bearings out.

    Thanks for the info. They took care of it first thing this morning when I went in but didn't have any spare belts I could take. I'll be picking up a spare at the hardware store in the mean time.

    hope it all works out. might have been a lemon belt, we get those from time to time.
    they do however stretch easily and need tightened alot, like every day almost it seems. they take alot of abuse i guess
