Should I Change Transmission Fluid?

1. How do I tell if transmission fluid needs to be changed?

Ok, I just recently learned that the 850 XP that I purchased used had the belt blown on it because the previous owner used the machine in High gear to pull an ice house. The new drive belt was put on roughly 200 miles ago.

So should I be concerned about changing the transmission fluid? The machine has 670 miles on it.
