Good evening Gentlemen,
I am on my 5th belt of the year. 1st I crossed the Ingersoll # to a 77" belt. This belt had no tension on the spring. Dropped to a 76" belt. This put good tension. 75" in a pinch but too much pressure. Every thing is spinning free. Nothing seems to be bent. My initial thoughts were, grass was too high (4' in upper field, 3' in lower field) but now all is manageable height and deck is raised all the way. Any thoughts would be great. P.S. they are Tractor Supply belts.

CCI uses a 9/16" wide, bare rubber belt. TSC carries 1/2" and 5/8" belts. The 1/2" may be bottoming out in the pulleys and slipping. Also the kevlar belts seem to NOT like the twists and turns in the CCI tractors. Best to get your belts from one of our trusted dealers ;)

Cheers,
Gordy

Thanks Gordy. I told my wife you guys would say I was using the wrong belt.

Belts matter. For lots of reasons.

OEM belts are best because they meet the original design.

Here is a chart showing standard v belt cross section dimensions





The Case OEM belts measure: a = 9/16" b = 7/16" Θ = 40
As you can see there are no standard belt sizes that match that cross section.

What you don't want to do is use too small of a belt...
(You also don't want the opposite of the problem depicted here - using too large of a belt)
