Turbo Head On A Simplicity Deck
Full Disclosure: I did not buy this unit from Mowers Direct. Writing this piece to the persons out there with failed turbo head units from Simplicity. You are not alone.

I too had early turbo belt failure, could not finish a half acre lot with a new belt. Turned out the pre-stamped mounting holes were such that the belt tension pulley would hit the deck drive pulley as the belt stretched under load. Moved the mount holes out 3/4" and that got me a year out of each belt.

Anyone Else Having Issues With Belts Lasting 1 Cutting?
I thought this would be ideal for me. I have a Regent 48" deck and got this and triple bagger. This thing EATS belts. I rarely can get through a cutting of a 1/2 acre before belt starts to disintegrate.

I have more luck with some non-Simplicity belts, but it's not that much better. I am surprised this wasn't recalled. Anyone else having issues like this?
