I broke my new toy

Recommended Posts

I finally got a good day to play with my new 416H with sickle bar mower. I put on the new belt and started mowing like a champ. It's fun to see these very tall, very skinny weeds falling down like timber. This thing can ruin a patch of blackberry canes and wild roses in a flash. All of a sudden a heard a noise and saw a spark and the belt flew off. I turned it off and looked and found the pto hub (terminology?) had broken off. It was hanging down at an angle. I plan to take the front off to get a better look during the daylight hours. Has anyone heard of this happening? Can it be fixed?
