Murray Replacement 1/2-inch X 38.1-inch Auger Belt Drive.
Snowblower belts start to wear out after 5 to 7 years, and should be replaced. You can save money by doing the job yourself.
Use a cloth measuring tape (not a steel one) and wrap it around the outside of the belt. You also use a thin string to take this measurement and place it on a steel tape to get the correct length. Next, for “A” Belts (1/2” width) subtract two-inches from the outside measurement to select the correct V-belt.
For most two stage snow blowers, there are 2 or 3 belts under the cover. One belt will drive the auger, and the other will drive the wheels.
An easy way to determine belt size is to simply “add 2″ to your off-the-rack trouser size. For example, if you wear a 36” waist trouser, then a 38 belt size will be a safe bet. Most will find this simple formula works best for pants worn at a traditional height–close to the natural waistline.

Murray snow blowers, powered by Briggs & Stratton engines, are durable, affordable, and easy to get up `n running on your own.
