3416 H Belt Help

Recommended Posts


The deck belt (arbor belt) is a 4L860 or a 1/2" wide belt by 86" long.

I use Fleet Farm belts, and the tractor I use the most for mowing, the belt is at least 10 years old. And I am mowing over 2 acres.

I have found that belt life is more dependent on storage than operating. In the fall I always release the belt tension remove the belts and hang them up.

Every old tractor that I have picked has the deck belt still in tension, even though these belts looks like new, none will make more than a couple of mowings most will only hold up for a few minutes.
