    Gravely ZT HD 60 drive belt replacement

    So my drive belt started slipping badly last week, and I need to replace it. I was wondering...will any kevlar 130" belt work?? or does it need to be Ariens/Gravelt brand? I noticed the other branded drive belts of the same length are half the price. Any insight will be appreciated. On a side note the mower doesnt even have 50 hours on it. Is this normal??

    Yes,
    just make sure it is rated for lawn & garden equipment.
    Standard belts have the kevlar fibres at different positions in the belt depending upon it's intended use.
    Oregon , Rotary , Stens & Prime Line all do OEM spec after after belts.

    Do you happen to know the part number?? These sites online are confusing? The belt I need is the belt that drives the hydrodrives. Also, do you know if the clutch has to come off?? I sure hope not..LOL

    No,
    I have no Gravely mowers in the repair run so no parts books for them.
    Look up your mower on partstree or get your hands on the gravely parts book for your mower.
    Type the gravely parts number into the aftermarket supplies web site and their part number will pop up if they have an exact replacement for the belt.
    Most of the on line catalogues from them will have the belt dimensions and you can double check that against the Gates catalogue https://www.gates.com/us/en/ymm/sear...ng/interchange

    Re: Gravely ZT HD 60 drive belt replacement

    Mine also broke at about 50 hours. I had the dealer replace it that time. Now at 200 hours it broke again. I bought the belt at the dealer, for like 30 bucks so at least it was cheap. I can NOT get the damn thing on. I have it just like the dealer told me. I have routed it every way possible and it lacks about 3/4 of an inch from going over the 3rd pulley, no matter what order I try it. It's very frustrating. Anyone have any tips?
