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.

Blade belt diagram for an is 2000 61 inch – Ferris IS2000 61"" Zero Turn Lawn Mower 5900586"
ANSWER : I don’t have a diagram but we just had to replace our belt and Here’s how we did it. Note that the shiny gold/silver pulleys make contact with the flat side of the belt while the black pulleys make contact with the u-shaped side of the belt. If you look at the pulleys you will see they have different shapes to correspond with the different shape on each side of the belt. The drive pulley at the back makes contact with the u-shaped side of the belt.Release the tension spring and thread the belt. Belt slips under the middle back pulley with the tension spring released. Then use a spring pulling tool (there is such a thing) or another method to pull the tension spring back over the bolt. Ensure belt is threaded properly with no twisting and nothing caught in the pulleys before firing it up.Hope that helps.
