I can understand needing more information but is a forum with fellows that have never seen your mower the place to ask first????
Would not the repair shop/dealer that actually did the work maybe a better place to ask???
I have not replaced the hydro dive belt on a CUB Cadet but I have done a lot of them on JD lawn mowers. You have to remove the mower deck, the rear fender deck, on some models the electric deck clutch ( drive belt above it and belt threaded through the clutch mounting bracket), Then you have to remove one of the tightener idlers to thread the belt through the tightener, then loosen the belt guides around the hydro drive pulley. Then you reverse the whole thing. So if everything went perfect it would take and 1-1 1/2 hours. Any trouble doing any of the other stuff and it could easily take longer.
All I am saying give the benefit of doubt to the fellow that actually did the work. YOUR tone in the post makes it CLEAR you think the dealer over charged you. So it would seem you would rather be mad about it rather than asked and find out what work was done.
Also think about what it costs to keep the doors open on a business. Many on here complain about the cost of dealership repairs and parts but then in the next post complain about there not being many dealers left so they can buy their parts locally. To be blunt. Even if the dealer made a $100 profit on your repair he would be hard pressed to keep his doors open repairing lawn tractors only. The only guy that can do it cheaper ,and still stay in business, is a one man shop that is semi retired and just looking for pocket money.

It's a dealer! If he'll screw the customer on the bill, I have no reason to doubt he lie to him on the questions.

Might as well ask here, if he asks at a dealer the the thieves will just charge him for the answers.

I am not mad. I had asked in my subject line for any Cub Cadet mechanics to reply because though they haven't seen my machine, they may have seen not hundreds perhaps, but certainly dozens. It is an ongoing model, Home Depot has them on the floor. From that experience they may be able to make a general statement, having seen some that have had no care or respect, to some machines that have been babied and well maintained. Any mechanics, JD, Kubota, or otherwise are of course welcome also to respond, And JD Seller I do value your opinion and you made good valid points. My mind was and is not set in concrete when an opinion is formed. I well may be dead wrong.
