X324 Powerflow - Belt rubbing / destroyed

Frank
X324 Powerflow - Belt rubbing / destroyed

I have a one season old X324 w/ the 48" deck w/ rotable wheels. Since the day I bought it the belt to the powerflow unit has rubbed on the steel of the mowing deck. Yesterday the belt failed.

If you take a look at the attached image I've noted where it rubs.

What is the 'normal' clearance? I don't see an easy means of fixing this. It doesn't appear that the Powerflow unit can be slid forward.

Any suggestions?

Frank

Frank I contacted the local dealer where I purchased the mower and they were very apologetic. They were aware of the problem, but were surprised that the belt actually broke.

They hustled out to my house and made the repair. They ended up grinding the part down so that the belt had clearance. It seems they were also able to move the powerflow unit forward a bit and that also added some clearance.

I used the mower for the remainder of the season without any problems.
