Customer Question
I have a 2017 48-inch...
I have a 2017 48-inch Scag Tiger Cat 2 with about 150 hours on it. My drive belt broke so I purchased a new one and it seems real small as I've tried every which way to get it around and pulleys and I can't. Is there a trick?

If belt is the correct one, you install the belt on the three pulleys, at drive motors and engine. Leaving it off the idler. Then with i=belt on the three, use breaker bar in the square hole in the idler bracket to pull the arm back and slip the idler against the belt.
