    How long can I reasonably expect a hydro pump belt to last on a Lazer HP? Mine broke today with only eighty-five hours on it.

    What is the easiest way to change it, off-site? I asked the same question in another post in another forum (I had a bad day today), but thought I might ask at the source. Other than this, I'm pleased enough with this product that I talked a friend into buying one for personal use.

    Life of this belt has to do with how much grease the idler receives. This grease point tends to get missed often. With proper greasing you should get hundreds of hours out of it.

    The way I have helped a customer before is running it up on the trailer ramp. Like the way you can change your blades. The hardest part of the job is getting the spring off and on. I use a piece of rope to help me out. This seams to work good for me.

    Thanks, Fred.
