One of BOB-CAT’s main pillars is Ease of Ownership which includes
maintaining your BOB-CAT mower. Deck belts and drive belts are easy to
replace due to the square cut-out located on the belt tensioning idler arm.
This square hole will accept a 3/8 in drive ratchet extension, which will aid
the user in having mechanical advantage to remove or install the deck
and/or drive belt on the machine.
The image below shows the square hole, located at “A”, on a (3) spindle
deck mower. Other locations may vary on various mowers.
Refer to the appropriate BOB-CAT Owner’s Manual for proper removal
and installation of a deck and drive belt specific to the mower you have.
