Primary blade drive belt connects the mower deck driven pulley to the electric clutch to turn the blades. Wear work gloves to protect your hands when installing this part.
MaxPower, Sunbelt and CRAFTSMAN® are among the most popular Lawn Mower Belt brands. While those brands are the most popular overall, you will also find a great assortment from Briggs & Stratton, Ariens and Honda.
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.
Put on a pair of pants that fits well and stand in a relaxed position. Then wrap a soft tape measure through the belt loops so the tape is snug but not too tight. This measurement is your belt size. You may need to round up to the nearest even-numbered inch.

The “Deck Belt” goes around the pulleys right above the blades on the deck and then to a double pulley. The “Drive Belt” on your mower goes from the transmission, around an Idler pulley then over to the double pulley I mentioned before. The Drive belt also plays a role in making the wheels turn.
There is no specific time length that mower belts need to be replaced. Some belts may last longer than others due to different operating conditions. One thing is for certain though, the more the mower is used, the sooner you will need to consider replacing the mower belt.
A common cause of belt breakage is excessive grass clippings on the deck. Grass clippings can work their way under pulleys and deck covers, causing series problems. Make sure to clean off your deck after every mower use and follow manufacturer recommendations.
Continue to measure around the inside of the lawnmower deck until you record the distance between the last spindle pulley and Spindle Pulley 1. Add up the measurements to determine the total distance around the spindle pulleys. This is the size of the mower deck belt you need.
