Just as I was finishing mowing today I heard a faint pop and the mower stopped moving. I just knew this had to mean that the pump drive belt had snapped. While it had not snapped the cogs had separated from the body of the belt. No more cheap after-market belts for me. After this experience paying $45 for a name brand/OEM belt doesn't seem like such a bad deal. Now in my garage replacing this belt is less than half-hour job. In this case it took at least twice as long. Most of the time was spent on stabilizing the mower since the ground was real soggy and the mower wanted to shift as the jack sank. I ended up stabilizing the mower with wooden blocks and was able to replace the belt and finish mowing. The jack I used was a standard wheeled floor jack. I'm thinking there has to be a better way to lift a mower in the field. How do you guys do it?
