    Blade drive belts are easy, anything strange about going up and changing the other two at the same time?

    Is this the one with that short PTO belt and then a deck belt under that?

    Its so much fun to work on those. Tell Exmark to use an electric clutch next time.

    2 belts above the deck belt, one for the hydro and one is an idler belt I think....

    The pto belt is a fun one. To make it easy drop a few things down. We usually take the mounting bolt out for the pivot point on the drum under there. Once you do a few it's about a 10 minute job at most but the first few until you get a rythem can be a pain...

    The one right above the deck belt is the PTO belt. Its what you tension/untension to turn the blades on/off. That one is easy to get off and replace. The hydro one sucks. I do them on a lift and I still hate them.
