    Tractor & Equipment Maintenance
    Morning, I'm hoping this is the right forum area for this, as I consider it maintenance and not repair. Do I need to purchase the Tech Manual TM138819 for my X580, or is it relatively safe for someone to disassemble/reassemble their own mower deck. I'd like to power wash mine as it's very...

    Mower had been working fine this season, but when I was sharpening the blades, I noticed the secondary belt (one that goes around blade spindles) was worn, so I decided to replace it.
