New Record - 42 min on mower belt before breaking
I have an older Cub Cadet HDS 2165 that the mower belt (engine to mower) keeps breaking. A little history. I have had this tractor for about 6 years and the first two everything was fine, then I started breaking the engine to mower belt. At first the belt would last for a couple of hours of mowing, but that time between breaks has come down to this most recent one of 42 min. I have had it to the dealer several times and every time but one he has not been able to find a cause for the breaking. The one time he found a spindle bent, so he replaced the spindle and pulleys. The blades turn freely, I have raised the height of the blades and this last time it was barely cutting the top of grass. I will appreciate any advice on what could be causing the belt to break?
