    Has anyone had a problem with the deck belt on a60" lightning with a32 hp. propane B&S?
    I lost the first belt with42 hours on the mower.
    Badboy sent me a new belt at no charge.
    The second belt tore up with 82 hours on the mower.
    I haven't called Badboy yet but was wondering if anyone else was having a belt problem.

    First i have heard of it. I would guess a bad pulley or something out of alignment.

    Also make sure you are engaging your pto at half throttle and then speeding the engine up after it is fully engaged.
