I'm not familiar with the 712, but I CAN tell you about a similar experience with JD188 mower deck.
Fortunately it was in warranty when the problem kept happening. It was throwing the main mower-deck belt which uses both the inside and outside of the belt. After the 3rd trashed belt, I took the whole thing to dealer and told him SOMETHING IS WRONG!!. After a lot of careful looking , it was discoverd that the 1st pulley on the deck was not seated down properly (most likely missed at factory) and so was riding about 3/4" above the other pulleys. The belt would flip off the pulleys and catch on the underside of the outer blade pulleys which had a 'cooling' fan for the bearings and just tear itself up in about 3 seconds. Not even enough time to hit the PTO switch. 3/4" doesnt seem like a lot, but at engine rpm, things happen fast. Perhaps one of the pulleys on your machine has moved and is no longer lined up.
