    Hi

    Me again :hammerhead:.....but I seem to have developed a Deck Belt problem...

    Like so:
    06 42in with 17 Kohler


    Belt Popped off under regular mowing conditions. Fixed
    Half hour later it comes off again. Fixed (cleaned clippings from pullys etc)
    Half hour again. Fixed
    1 Hour Off again....Ugg

    Has done it in three differnt positions mowing.
    Once all way up.
    Figure it'll pop off 1st thing in morning when we crank up.

    Any Ideas? Stretched belt or something?


    Thanks

    Well a belt could stretch after the initial couple hours...
    When you are putting it back on is it nice and tight?
    Make sure there is not a stick or debris caught inside one of the spindle pulleys.
    Otherwise, the machine is still new, take it to the dealer and let them take care of this under warranty.

    Hey

    I belive that I have been collecting clippings n mulchins spewed all over top of deck so I think from now on I will just remove the covers over the Pullys and give them s brush to clean debris out from under cover(s).

    Think (Hope) thats what been making her jump.

    Thanks

    It would have to be packed pretty bad in there for that to be the reason.
    I would get it back to the dealer if that doesn't take care of it.
