    These numbers don't seem right . My old broke belt is a bout 101 " inches , the one from my other deck was 100+ or - then I found a chart that said it was 104.35 in . . there are plenty on line I just need the length .

    I am trying to find out what the belt length is on a 48 inch deck for a 523DXI part no. 95-3878 . Dealer wants over $70. I want to find it at a reasonable price.
  5. 2 stage snow blower question

    John , Thanks for the post . I do not think the 523DXI is at fault . The first gear that stripped was my fault . I went over the whole blower greasing and lubricating the chain but forgot the most important . The oil level in the gear box . The second I caught a solid chunk of ice that got jammed and caused the damage . I will have to be more careful . ED

    I REPLACED THE BUSHINGS WITH BEARINGS LAST SEASON. I HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO TIGHTEN THE ECCENTRIC BEARINGS WITH THE ROTATION OR AGAINST THE ROTATION. I HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP.
  8. 2 stage snow blower question

    After a very cold spell I picked up a chunk of ice that did the dirty deed . I have ordered a new gear ,worm and seals . I hope the rest is still OK because all was new . Thanks for the comment . ED

    This is 120 lbs. and works fine for me if I can stop stripping the brass gear .
  10. Plow trouble

    Cleat & Sarge , I bought the plow in 2001 and used it every year on my shale driveway which is about 250 ft . plus up by my mail box up by the road . I replaced the scraper about three times ,welded some small cracks where the blade mounts to the frame and straightened the blade itself two or three times . When I do these repairs I repaint . I am not easy on the blade and leave it on the tractor year round since I bought the 523DXI . I have spread 10 wheeler loads of stone dust and top soil . Salt is not involved in its use .

  13. Plow trouble

    I cleaned out the groves with my Dremel and squeezed the top of the spring . I had the idea of clamps so it's nice to see that someone else thought that clamps might work .
