Why does my drive belt keep breaking on my rider
i replaced the drive belt on craftsman rider lt 1000 and it cut 80% of yard then belt started smoking then broke
I put a new belt on and it kept jumping off and I was slipping the belt under the plastic guard on the left side of the deck. After 3 times I felt a metal piece that is to hold the belt on the pulley under that plastic guard. I had been putting the belt over the metal piece, it would still turn the blade for awhile then jump off.
Check to see if your pto clutch is sticking or even stopping during operation if so this will cause the belt to snap
