I post a similar question over on the John Deere tractor forum but I think this may be a better place to get my question answered. Can someone tell me if there is a belt tension adjustment on the JD 272 finish mower? My belt slips when I get in some high grass and I don't want to replace a $100 belt if I can just adjust it. I don't have a manual for the mower and the John Deere website is no help at all. If anyone knows the answer or can tell me where I can find the manual for this mower in PDF online I would be greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Tony Esposito

About how tall is the grass? you don't want it to be completely tight then you could stall the engine of bust the belt. I'm not sure if it has an adjustment but i'd say yes.

I think there is a spring under the cover and there really is no way of tightening it. The only thing I can think of is if there are more holes that the spring can fit into........might want to drill your own holes to make it a stronger spring.:praying:
