    Not good seeing those prices
    One advantage with Honda spares it's either cheaper through boats or buying a part off e.bay being a Chinese copy
    But u guys make close to 100k a year you can afford it

    Hi RED,how long a run do you get out of the drive wheels.
    I’d like to get a spare drive belt as I’m on my second one plus is there any place that does a good deal on MM bulk blades as the local dealers here are wanting to get rich on these sales

    I’m kinda eating my words here re mulchmaster but I’m going back to using it as my main mulching mower as the Honda HRU and HRX can’t leave the best finish on well manicured lawns where the MM turns it into dust,this is only showing itself as a problem during the dry seasons as the MM does what I need to show best results.During winter i go back to Honda for the extra hp

    Allmowerspares never replied on that belt.
    The green belt on the 550 are they the same quality as the current belts on current model MM ?

    Running standard (polyester) A section belts with 'reverse bend' ie serpentine path really shortens their life.
    They cost a bit more, I think you could get a much longer life using a kevlar cogged belt as they are more flexible and much better at handling reverse bends.
