Didn't fit at all. Waaay too long. We have a Craftsman mower with a 42 in deck so not sure what the problem is.
Parts for craftsman riding mower
Hit a rock one of the kids threw in the grass with the mower. The original belt snapped and a blade was also bent. Replaced belt, easy to do and both blades also easy to do. Should last for awhile.
Rated the belt as average because I a think it is my mower that may be the problem. Belt slips off from time to time even though this is the correct belt for my mower.
This belt works very well.
it was easy to put on and use. not much more to say.
Craftsman replacements belts is much better than other belts
Matched up part numbers from partsdirect.com, picked up the belt at my local store. Installed it and everything is working well. There is a little length variation I think, the new belt appeared slightly longer than the old belt. The tensioner on the deck seems to keep it tight enough to work properly.
