I've always run belt driven mowers. I just ordered the 44 Dually. Any advice to give a guy with ZERO hydro experience?
make sure you check the hydro fluid at the start of the day when you check your oil. a hydro is easy to figure out. just run it on your property and you'll get the hang of it in about 30 minutes. be sure and post some pics when you get it. :waving:Alas, if only I had an older brother with experience to lean on.
I bought spare belts, blades, a spindle, a full rear tire assembly (so I can address flats at home, not on the job), mulching kit, and matching BOP thong. I'm hoping to keep breakdowns to minutes - not days...Get a replacement belt for the hydro and learn how to replace it before it breaks. And be sure the idler pulley is always good. If you let these belts rip themself apart they can tear up stuff and on some units they are as difficult as heck to replace.
That's great! :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:Here's what you will need to do: after about 2 laps on a yard on that hydro, take it over to your trailer and park it. Then go and get a gas can. Take the gas can over to the belt drive mower. Pour gas over belt drive mower. Light match and throw on belt drive mower. Run away. You will not use the belt drive again!
