Hello all, trying to set up the mower for the first time on my mf 12. I'm a bit confused as to how many total belts it takes....Not including the hydro belt and the belt on the actual mower deck, Is it two more belts needed with part #'s Gates 6850 and 6830?...any help is appreciated..Thanks, Joe

Hi Joe,
Yes, there are two belts. One, the 6830, runs from the engine pulley to the mule drive and around the engagement idler. When the engagement idler is released, it tightens the belt and the mule drive starts turning. The 6850 belt runs from the other pulley on the mule drive back to the right angle drive on the mower deck. There is a spring that pulls the drive toward the front of the tractor, and keeps tension on this belt.
