Lever on left side by axel

Recommended Posts

This lets the mid PTO pivot forward, loop the mower belt, or sickle mower belt on the pulley and pull lever back towards the rear, helps to install belts I believe.

I believe the lever you speak of is to tighten the idler pulley against the belt for the mower deck, and perhaps other equipment driven from the center PTO.

The earlier models didn't have it, but the increased horsepower required a bit more tension on the cross-drive belt to deal with pulley slip. It is possible to change a belt without releasing it, but it is certainly easier when it is slack.
