Need part number for AC mower belt

Recommended Posts

Also posted as: RE: AC 712H Lawn Mower Belt, need part number

First, thanks to Al and Jeff Nemes for their responses. Now I need to determine the part number, length, and cross-section shape for the OEM belt. Unfortunately the manual that Simplicity sent me
(the Owner's Manual) does not give these details. Where can I find this information? Again, I have an early AC 712H with a 48" rotary mower deck.

Many thanks (in advance).

If you are in Canada and need to find your nearest dealer you might contact Bob Aiken, Canadian sales mgr. at 1-519-751-1685

We UPS parts, but I know nothing about sending to Canada, or exchange rates, etc. so it might be easiest to contact someone up there. If I am wrong about you being there disreagard this.

Good Luck,

Your request about the shape of the belt besides the part number makes me think you're ready to not be too picky about waiting for official parts when something else will work. When the belt on my 48" mower deck died this spring with the grass growing fast, I took all the pieces I could find to a HVAC/electrical equipment supplier. They guessed at the length, sold me a "Dayco Super Blue V-Belt" for about $15, (their part #AP84), and told me to return it for a different size if it didn't work. Haven't been back there. When the smaller belt on my hydro drive needed replacing, it took one of the local dealers more than two weeks to obtain the "official" part which cost almost $20.
