I just bought a deck for my 310-8, it’s a 42inch rear discharge, it came with a complete parts tractor, but I need new belts for it. Does anyone know what size belts I need?

Dropped by to throw out a question around my 1986 x310-A with a 42" deck. Blew the belt on the deck today so this info was very helpful in getting me on a path to correctly ID the deck, and so now I also know what belt I need. Meanwhile, is it me or is this rig incredibly loud with the blades spinning? I put my ballistic ears on and even those could be a little stronger in the sound blockage department.

Yeah I thought mine was loud too. As long as nothings rubbing or grinding I think it’s fine.

I ALWAYS wear my 30db "ears" before I even start a motor (mowers, chipper, chain saw, pressure washer, trimmer, blower, generator, etc.). Makes them all sound fine to me. :D

Don's got the right idea! Heck I even wear mine so I don't have to hear kids squeal. So, I'm wrestling with the deck belt right now. This was after discovering both spindle pulleys completely scaled. Meaning, thick corrosion inside the "V". I chipped all that away good enough for now. We'll see if pulleys running a belt that are smoother will make a difference. Otherwise I hope to get 2 pulleys and an idler in here sometime soon. In fact, I'll plan on refurbing the whole deck based on lots of great ideas you guys have in the forum.

if the mower deck noise is excessive - this could be the result of a loose idler ... too much movement of the idler ... too loose ... nylon bushings / washers and /or the idler bar could be excessively worn ... spring lost tension (?)

 

one telltale sign - noise increase as idler moves back and forth when deck / blades are engaged 

 

corroded pulleys (inside portion that contacts the belt) can destroy a belt - sometimes in as little as a few hours ...  (just something to consider)

      Selling my trusty WH520H.  ~880 hours (currently used for moving snow when needed so hours may rise) very solid machine, strong and hardworking.  20HP Onan, hydro transmission and hydraulic lift.  Has Matt's foot-pedal conversion for forward/reverse.  Included in the sale is a tall-chute snow blower and 60" mowing deck.  The blower is in excellent condition and is on the tractor currently.  The mowing deck has been a workhorse over the years.  No holes but could use some TLC, probably needs new spindles at some point and could use a couple spots touched up with welder also does NOT have any pulley covers/protectors (see photo).  Tractor has been an incredible tool, very solid and dependable and I'm certainly going to miss her when she's gone.   
       
      Recent maintenance: replaced the plugs this summer, fluids as needed (hydro has about 100 hours on fluid/filter; oil was done in the spring and has about 25 hours on it).  Battery is about 3 years old as are the tires, Terra Trac tires on the rear and turfs on the front.  The seat (with arm rests) isn't in great shape.  I've got a cover for the seat, never used.  It's never really bothered me but new seat cover is included in sale as are 4 hub caps, chains for the rear tires, and some misc spare parts (see photos).  
       
      I've owed this machine about 8 year and put ~350 hours on her.  She's not a show piece but could be restored.  Sheet metal is generally in shape, no rust however the hood does have a couple dings in it.  
       
      I'm only selling because I'm trying to help my son get a small lawn care business started and looking to move to a zero-turn.  The 60" deck is too large for our trailer, the mowing deck lacks pulley safety shields, and we'd like something that mows faster.  My only complaint with this machine is the top-speed (which isn't great when comparing to today's machines) otherwise she's a beast.  They don't make them like this anymore.

      Hello all - Working on my 312-A with 42" deck, 21-12KE01, 1986. In previous posts I mentioned I was not able to make out the model number, but with the help of DIY digital forensic analysis (Yeah, real technical stuff, eh?) I got it figured out. But to the point, I am wondering how far down I will be able to strip the deck with the object being to stop the rust and get a durable finish on it. In particular, after reviewing the parts explosions I can't tell if I will be able to remove the baffles from the main part of the deck or if they are welded. If anyone has some insight on this I would most appreciate your comments.
