    Have fun twisting it on!

    Thanks Gary,

    I looked at complexity of the winding, and I decided I need the new belt before taking off the old one!!!

    When I had to replace the belt on mine, I wondered how am I ever gonna get this thing back on......but on the back of the shroud, inside to the left of the main pulley is a decal that shows the correct way to install it. It' s got a twist or two, but it's really not that hard to put on. If there's no decal, or if you can't read it, go to www.woodsequipment.com & you can download the manual for your mower. Is it a RM59-1, -2, or -3 ? You can find this on the serial # tag. Just my .02, but, I went ahead and got the kevlar belt, been on for 3 yrs & not a peep of trouble. I know this is an old piece of equipment, but I love mine. Bill

    I just bought a RM59 yesterday for $150! Then I came on here searching for info on RM59 and found this thread helpful since there is no decal on mine and I have successfully downloaded an owner manual.

    I'll attach it to my tractor in few hours and give it a very short run just to see how it does. I know the blade is dull and I am just wondering if it need more greasing since I don't want to overdo it. Belt appears to be okay but sometime your eyes can fool you.

    Anyway, just wanted to give this thread a kudo since the answer is already here without having to post a new thread. Thanks to BHeath!

    Quick tip. Blade bolts on the RM59 are reverse thread...

    A question to follow on this thread. Do you have to use the support chains? Also, the blade bolt also has a nylon lock bit on it.

    Oops, forgot. The belts, if visually OK are most likely in good shape. When last replaced, mine looked really ragged but still functioned. For all the abuse they are very sturdy.
