Need help finding a v-belt for Simplicity 40" Two stage snowthrower

Recommended Posts



New member here that needs to find a source for a V-Belt to fit my 1997 Simplicity 40"Two Stage  Snow Thrower.attachment. It goes on my Broadmoor of the same vintage.

I've browsed a number of forums and referenced material all to no  avail. The part # is 1713712SM. I called eparts and was told they do not have it and I would have to call Simplicity. Can anyone cross reference this for me so that I can get it somewhere besides Simplicity?  

If I have this posted in the wrong place I apologize.

The part number you listed is incorrect - it's for a belt guide.

I believe the correct belt number is listed with the snowblower hitch rather than the snowblower "head" parts manual.  If you have a mfg #1692040 or #1692041 hitch for your tractor (the hitch used for a single stage snowblower), then the belt part # is 1678241SM - a 139" HA belt.

Interesting! The MFG No for my thrower is 1693242.  I got the belt part number from eparts and confirmed it today with Simplicity who is of no help. They indicated they have not had it in stock since 2012. They did show it as a 40" belt. Thanks.

You're getting bad info.

Did you download the Simplicity Parts Manual(s) for your equipment?  IMO, they are the best reference rather than PartsTree, etc.

Notice the items circled in red ( IPLs from the mfg #1693242 Parts Manual):



In other manuals, this page is called "Hitch Support Group", not "Hitch Group";  leading to confusion:



As I said in my earlier post, the required belt is listed in the parts manual for your hitch, not the snow blower "head".  There should be a tag on the hitch similar to the tag on your snow blower.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
