Your LT1045 model is fit with a single cylinder Kohler engine. Perfect for large lawns, steep and even uneven terrain, your 18-inch turning radius will keep your lawn looking professional year-round.
There is no specific time length that mower belts need to be replaced. Some belts may last longer than others due to different operating conditions. One thing is for certain though, the more the mower is used, the sooner you will need to consider replacing the mower belt.
A common cause of belt breakage is excessive grass clippings on the deck. Grass clippings can work their way under pulleys and deck covers, causing series problems. Make sure to clean off your deck after every mower use and follow manufacturer recommendations.
For a belt drive system, the motor torque required during constant velocity is simply the total axial force (Fa) on the belt multiplied by the radius (r1) of the drive pulley. Notice that the efficiency (η) of the belt drive system is included in the torque equation.
A: Your mower has two belts. Both play a role in making the blades turn. The “Deck Belt” goes around the pulleys right above the blades on the deck and then to a double pulley. The “Drive Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission, around an Idler pulley then over to the double pulley I mentioned before.
Today, most serpentine belts are expected to last anywhere from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Some belts can last significantly longer than this, while others give out before 60,000 miles. Make sure to check your owner`s manual to find out the recommended belt replacement time frame.

The problem: electronics will not engage.

The unit was mowing and running when I moved to another location and started the mower it started fine.

Unloaded and went to engage the blades but they would not engage. Got off the machine to check things out belts etc. were OK got back on the machine and it wouldn’t start even the hour meter failed to light up.
