My Steiner 450 is eating belts. I replaced my Maine belt this past winter, it was freezing cold and sucked. Now my PTO pulley is hitting frame, suggest I replace belt or spring so I am replacing both. When I took PTO belt off I noticed my main belt is missing about 15 to 20% of the teeth so I need to replace that AGAIN !

Is Kevlar the answer or are there other issues?

Also, what is the trick to put tension spring on ? I had an incredibly tough time putting that back on the last time. I think I am likely not seeing a trick that the pro’s use.

Thanks for your time

It could be that the spindles are binding or just worn out. And yes it is a pain to remove and replace the belts.

Probably help if the belt is left out in the hot sun to warm up. ....

Thanks for the reply. I was able to fix a few days after. Replaced spring and used Kevlar belts. I got smarter and replacement this time was much easier. Also, surprisingly, both belts on front of mower are the same size/part number,
