How hard is it to change the serpatine belt on a 7220

Recommended Posts

My belt started to come apart late last night and I haven't had a chance to dig into it yet to see how hard it is . Amy advice I would truly appreciate. Thanks .

Yep, only tool required is a half inch drive breaker bar to relieve tension on the tightener.  Good luck.

Yeep, I put one on my now ex 1994 CIH 7220 when I had it. Easy peasy. If I can do it, anyone can. Lol....,

Some use a 1/2" some are 3/8" ratchet needed for the tightners

If you have several machines that use a serpentine belt this is a handy tool to have and it has other uses besides belt tensioners. 
FWIW, my (now deceased) Snap On man recommended this particular tool as a versatile, tool that performed well and at a decent price. This was the only model he kept on his truck.
