hello everyone. I am in need of the drive belt for my M-42 mower. the deck belt I have found(AA85) but I cannot find the drive belt anywhere. the manual says "S2214 1/2 x 74 Round" as the belt but I cannot find that belt anywhere. it also says its a round belt and so far every place I have went to for mower belts have not heard of a round belt. does anyone know where I can find this belt at. I'm restoring the deck and would like to have it functional again.

I don't think that means the belt is round, I think the word should be around, in other words, circumference.

I would think A Tractor Supply or Rural King could match the dimensions you need.

I would use a kevelar (blue) belt from tsc, you have the size, 1/2 by 74 , that is the size you need, I use the blue belts from tsc on all of my tractors, and like them, do not get the cheap black belts, they will shred easily.

I was told by another bush Hog collector to look for a double V belt that were used on snapper mowers- not sure the measurements- it will be the weekend till I can go measure one of my belts.

ok thanks. yeah i was thinking a double v belt would be better going by the diagram and the pullys. TSC can order the belt (A-AA72) which is 1/2x74 double v belt. the place was closed so they will have to call tomorow and get it ordered. judging by the diagram a standard v belt would not work I don't think.

did a special order at tsc for the 1/2x72 belt. it came in today and to an untrained eye it would be round. it doesn't look like a half inch belt. they must go by the diamiter cause it looks small when you put it next to a half in v belt.
