    Posted: 20 May 2022 at 6:52am
OK, my loaner's deck belt got FRIED, when neighbour decided to 'brush cut' NOT 'trim' her 12" tall ,kind damp grass.
According to the AC130 parts book, there's FOUR different belts ! and 2 different widths of 'pulleys' (though no part nums for pulleys.or picture....)
It's a 42" deck, 23hp machine.
belts are either 91.xx or 94.xx inches but no 'chart' of the combos...
kinda hard to believe the same setup can use belts that are 3 inches different.

curious like my cats....

I will ask my son tomorrow as he has the tractor with the 42” cut. If I may offer some advice, he has had a issue with broken belts lately so he dropped it off at the dealer to have them look at it. $400 later, a new idler pulley, idler pulley arm, and belt. Also ground down the top of the bushing that the arm rides on as they were poorly manufactured and allow too much play in the arm resulting in broken belts as the idler arm moves up and down too much as the mower belt is in operation. Also advised not to run it in any notch below the 5th from the bottom as the deck goes too low to maintain proper alignment. His only has 104 hours on it

Thanks ! I bought 3 , 92,93,94" belts Put the A92K belt on ( 4L94.0" )
Cut 1/8th ac of 12" grass down to #6 on the deck lever.Only problem was no rope on the discharge lever and the kinda wet ,long grass kept plugging up....
Seems like were 'good to go'.
I wondered about the  'not less than 5', TERRIBLE angles !!!!
I'll inform the 'cutter' to keep at 5 from now on. She's a city girl who loves to cut grass for her 99 year old father-in-law.

Still 'miffed' about docs saying 4 different belts and NO info as to which it's supposed to be.....

Jay the Simplicity part number for the belt is 1732955SM. They charged him $49 bucks for it. It doesn’t say the length. It definitely has a deeper V in it than the belt from TSC.

The book for these mowers are horrible. Very little info online as well. It’s a decent mower, just avoid hitting objects like tree roots with it! I think that’s what my daughter in law did! She said she grazed it but these decks are not built very heavy so apparently the shock bent the idler pulleys also.

  Howdy AC720Man,
  I still have same belts and blades on my AC130 All Wheel Steer.  But need to replace all. Do you have part numbers for Blades and the Secondary mower drive belt also ?

Thanks Kurzy

  Thanks Charlie,
  Found a simplicity dealer in Billings. Give my lawn tractor numbers and all 3 belts and 3 blades coming. Not cheap!  But when they come I will get chance to measure up and maybe look at after market for next time.

Thanks Kurzy

Just saw the post and I couldn’t give you the info. Like Charlie said, different deck sizes. 3 blades or 2, so they take different sizes. A suggestion is to stay with the Simplicity brand belts. He has tried different brands and they don’t last. The pulley takes a certain width and deep V to keep it in line with the idler pulley or when it jumps off it breaks the belt, bends the pulley and the arm.
