Please help with this squeaking sound!?

For some odd reason when I engage my blades on my 61" surfer it makes a squeaking noise at first as get going. For instance Squeak----Squeak----Squeak----Squeak--Squeak--Squeak-Squeak-Squeak-Squeak. Starts off slow then speeds up. My dealer said I needed to just tighten my belts so I let them do it and I too have tighted them, but it works shortly then as I am mowing and have to keep engaging them and disengaging them they start squeaking again. Please help me work this kink out.

Thanks,
Wally

Wally24,

I am not sure what the cause might be but your dealer should be able to isolate the noise. It could be the belt or it could be the pulley or a bearing. I would take it back to the dealer and let them look into this again. Please let me know what you find.

Thanks,
