Craftsman is made by Murray Corp. who also makes Murry, YardMan, Lowes, Penncraft, and on and on. Go to your local Wal-Mart, Lawn and Garden Dept. and look for the belt that fits the Murray, YardMan, Lowes, Toro, 42" Deck 14-18 HP. Or take your old belt with you, and stretch them both end to end holding the end loops with each hand. Or you could go to Sears and just tell the parts department what your mower is and they can get you a Craftsman belt. It will be the same one you get at Lowe's, Wal-Mart, ect, probably just cost a little more. Sears doesn't make mowers, they just have their colors and names put on by the manufactorer. And Murray of Ohio is the maker of these.

You will probably need more info.
The belt is listed in your manual, if you have one.
If you can bring the belt in, a good auto parts store will have it in stock.
If you have the model no. we may be able to find the size for you on the internet.

What is the size of the belt on a craftsman Lt1000 21 horse Briggs and Stratton 42 inch deck


do not just buy a belt that is "close" to your size belt. the size of the belt is not always a standard size, there is a width as well as a length and also a power rating , that is critical in belt replacement. you must have the model number of the Mower unit "not the engine model" to get the correct belt. OEM belts are made to certain specifications to withstand certain actions of the mower and the wrong size belt could result in a dangerous situation of the blade not stopping or engaging sporadically, or if it is a transmission belt , the mower may not go forward or not stop moving which again is dangerous.

Make a drawing of the deck routing and pull the belt off the mower measure the width and length of the belt and order one on line or go to a mower shop with the belt and they can size it to the one you need. Do the same for the drive belt.

Model no. 917257660 need belt size for drive and deck


Hello,

The part number for the drive belt is: 140294 the size is Length: 82 1/4", Width: 1/2", Type: Covered

The part number for the mower deck is: 140067 the size is Length: 82 1/2", Width: 1/2", Type: Covered

They are very similar belts so don't get them mixed up the springs on the clutch pulleys may not be able to compensate for the slight difference.

Good luck, if you find this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thank you! Dane

Without the model number, I couldn't tell you what belt goes on the ground drive. That 174883 is a 5/8 x 97" and is your deck drive belt. Your ground drive belt may just need replacing. They will wear thin and loosen up between the pulleys and cause the problems you're having. The old belt may still have the numbers on it.
