    .... On a Kubota ZD28 Pro60 deck. How often do you “BREAK”, REPLACE or CHANGE (Hours) your Pro deck belt and what has been your cost :cry:?

    I've got 423 hours on my ZD28 / 60, no deck belts broken yet.

    Did dump a spindle at 6 hours though.

    Other than that, nothing wrong.

    .... Yes, Love it, In my option you couldn't own a better machine. There may be other machines out their that can do something better. But, over all, I don't think you can beat the Kumoto Dragon. Quality all the way :).

    Don't waste your time trying to figure belt life. Just go ahead and keep a spare or two all the time. I have had belts last hundreds and hundreds of hours and then finally break and the new replacement belt turn around and break within 30 hours and it doesn't matter in the least the name brand of the machines as belts come and go.

    Just replaced ours...3 seasons around 400 hrs...cost I didn't even look but I think around 60.00 dollars....oh yeah you have to remove the deck and take the bracket off the gear box to change it.....stupid set up...I don't think I would buy another...love the engine but the hydralics have a lot to be desired....give me a pump and motor setup that I can work on if needed...note...bought a new scag 61 29 Kaw fuel injected unit on Sat. gonna put it to work tomm.
