The way to Replace a Drive Belt on an Exmark Turf Ranger

After the drive belt on your own Exmark Turf Ranger starts to go, you might experience squealing which comes out of the deck as the belt rubs against components it normally wouldn’t touch, slipping of gears as the belt malfunctions or an entire breakdown of the machine once the belt snaps. Even if you’re not experienced at replacing the drive belt on the Turf Ranger, together with the correct directions, you ought to have your mower ready to go again quickly.

Lower the mower deck to its lowest place. Eliminate the four pins and spacers that hold the mower deck instead of detach the deck in the linkage. You’ll find two pins at the front and 2 in the back. Put the pins and spacers aside for reinstallation after drive belt replacement. Slide the mower deck from underneath the machine.

Eliminate the center cutter belt shield to gain access to the belt that is damaged by removing the bolts which hold it in position with the proper sockets. Eliminate the cracked or worn belt by pulling it in the pulleys that hold it in place on the mower deck. Discard the old belt.

Insert the belt between the drive wheel discharge bar and the clutch drive sheave. Make certain that the belt fits securely in the groove of the sheave. Wind the belt around the clutch.

Slip the other end of the belt to the stationary idler groove. Slide the spring-loaded idler aside to make way for the belt. Install the belt on the inside of the idler. Tug the belt to position by wrapping it around the mower deck drive sheave.

Reinstall the center cutter belt shield and tighten the bolts which hold it in position. Slide the mower deck back under the Turf Ranger, and reinsert the pins and spacers that connect the deck to the linkage. Adjust the mower deck height.
