Are the belts that turn your blades supposed to be shakey a little bit? I never noticed it until one of my workers went by me and I could see between the top of the deck and the footboard (on my lazer z) and I noticed that the belts kinda shook a little bit. Are they supposed to be really tight? thanks

I believe that a certain amount of shaking...or vibrating between pulleys is normal for belt driven spindles.

all belts have a tight spot somewhere and the spindle pulleys might not be exactly perfectly round.

and, in the case of my deck, one belt remains tight while the blade engager pulley causes a little vibration when it is engaged.

the tight belt has very little vibration.
