Drive clutch, PTO clutch? Issue as in not turning?
Does the tractor drive during the 1.5 hours? Do the deck blades spin during the 1.5 hours.
How many belts have been gone through? What condition are they in? My machine had a frozen
tensioner pulley and the belt heated up to an extreme heat, heating up the transmissin pulley to
such an extent it would blister my fingers. Even with that heat the belt would cool, work and not
split/seperate layers or break. The edges of the belt became slick and polished.
The thing to have done was check it out as best you could before getting it to a dealer. Worse case
remove the deck, check that. Look at all the pulleys, PTO, guides, break, drive clutch & etc.,
and see what is going on. Since it's at a dealer you might as well have them give an estimate.
