I am looking for belt size for HABAN 24577 snowthrower to Murray 18hp lawn tractor. Book doesn't provide size info.
I have a Haban Model No. 24577A 42" front mounted snow thrower attachment, which I have mounted to a Murray lawn tractor. I needed to replace the lower drive belt, labeled: V-Belt-Long Part No. 23948 in my Haban manual. I had found it next to impossible to find a replacement belt part number or cross-reference to other brands. I tried many belt sizes and lengths to no avail - belts broke quickly and suddenly after 1 or two uses.
While researching Haban on the internet, I realized that they also supplied snow thrower attachments for Sears Craftsman lawn tractors. A thought hit me at one point in my research... that Haban probably sold the same snow thrower chassis to all manufacturers, but only with different interfaces to the tractors. So I ordered up a belt for a different Haban model that was supplied to Sears, and I think that my intuition was correct!! I have found a belt that works with my Haban Model No. 24577A snow thrower.
The belt that appears to be a direct replacement for the Haban belt part number 23948 (long) is as follows: Kevlar Blue V-Belt 5/8" x 87". It is sold by several suppliers under various part numbers, priced at $20 to $30.
I hope this helps you.
