I have a John Deere L 130 with a kohler engine. I am having problems
with the mower belt. I bought a new one about a month ago. It is
already chewed up and came off a few times.
I spent several hours checking it out yesterday. Nothing is rubbing
that I can tell. The only thing that seemed odd is it seems the idler
pulley is at an angle, and the belt could possibly run the top of the
idler pulley when it leaves the pulley and goes to the pto. Also with
the mower on the back of the belt at the rear deck seems to bounce
I took the pulley off, the pulley seemed ok. There is a large washer
that seems to pivot the assembly. It is doing its job. Spring seems
I spun all the pulleys by hand and nothing is locked up. I will say
when the blades are engaged I can hear a slight roar like the bearing
in the spindles are making noise but when I spin them by hand they
I have a large yard of about 3 acres I mow. I mow it at about a 2 inch
Is there anything I should look for or parts that need to be ordered?
