Hate to disagree with Rick, but on a Woods 59 the outer spindle pulleys are at different heights. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if the outside pulleys are in different positions on a wider Woods mower.
My Woods manual is in the Cubhouse now, or I would quote the numbers for you.
Well, I did start by saying I had no experience with the wider mowers. But I think the overarching consideration is that the belts have a preferred path and and attitude, which an owner should keep intact. Once the belts are allowed to deviate from the intended path, issues like jumping off will happen. Thanks Bill, for the precision and correction, because we want the readers to have correct information above all.
