Did it just start or did you replace a belt,then it started.
Check idler pulleys,when the bearing goes they seize up as they heat up.
Check for proper routing,be sure the belt isn't rubbing on any pulley guides.
Just as TJR345 says - you need to take a close look. With the belt off use a straight edge on the pulleys between each other which will show if any are out of kilter. Spin each one by hand and feel for resistance or wobbling.
All the deck pulleys are metal. Check belt guides for rubbing. Another area is the deck adjustment bolts. They sometimes rub the back of the belt when the deck is raised up. They can be trimmed if they are rubbing. This happens mostly on the right side but check both sides to make sure. Depending on deck size and serial number some of these belts are quite long and will whip if the pto is engaged at high throttle.
So I just got the 60HD broom for my x758.
For all you guys that have been using them for a while, any tips or advice on using them?
storage and removal?
it’s only me on my own I don’t have a few guys with me.
Any advice would be really appreciated
I have an x758 with 54" deck, and I also have the mulch kit, and a bagger.
I have the stock blades, and another set of blades (that look pretty stock) that came with the bagger or mulch kit.
I was just wondering, for quality of cut, mulching capability, and bagging/lift capability...
So I purchased a new X758 with 54HC drive over deck and 54" snow blower at the end of the 2018 mowing season. My plan, at the time, was to keep it for the next 20 years, then buy another new one for my retirement years.
So much for making plans.
My job will now have me moving to a new place...
