2Inferior product.  Jun 09, 2013
By hunt more often
I ordered this belt because it was listed with a Kevlar composition. It seemed to work fine for a while, but after putting the mower in some tall grass it burned and then broke after a short time. My factory belt lasted 10 years. This seems to be an inferior product. I would not recommend this product.

4Wrong Size  Jun 03, 2012
By K. G. Holt
This replacement model did not fit as it should have on my Craftsman mower. Although it is shown as a replacement, it is too small and causes the blades to turn whenever the mower is running; regardless if the blades are engaged or not. This is a definite safety hazard. I'll need to replace this replacement.

**Update 7/29/12
I've been using this belt for over a month now and would like to amend my original review. The belt has seemed to loosen (but not in a bad way) and now the blades no longer engage when the engine, alone, is running. The safety issue I raised originally has dissipated. I was unhappy, though, that the seller contacted me about my 2-star rating and bad review of the product. If you sell a product that doesn't do what it's supposed to do, the potential buyers, as well as the existing seller, should know. But, I can say that the product is now performing like it's supposed to.

**Update 5/19/13
This item almost lasted a year. I replaced it about a month ago with a better quality belt. This belt became twisted and began to fray before it finally failed. I don't think it was user error because threading the belt through the proper path is not difficult. I say this because I put on my original on 10 years ago and it lasted. So choose wisely.

5Good buy! Easy to install  Jul 13, 2012
By johnnyMogadoreOH
As a 'handy' novice I was very concerned to take on installing a belt on my Craftman riding mower. The estimate was $200-300 for pickup-fix-delivery from two local repair shops. Well, I 'gambled' on this belt and won!! I had taken a few hours to look for the challenge but couldn't see any. I thought I must be missing the problem but it would become obvious when the belt arrived. A spring loaded pulley made the install a 15 minute snap ! It was so easy I laughed. It's been a month and still working as expected. I'm now ordering a 'drive belt' and hope for the same 'quick' success. (Note - seven years ago I did spend the big bucks to have the repair shop overhaul my mower to include belts.... in the Spring they lasted 5 minutes because it was done wrong)

5Good Product! Very Cooperative Seller!  Apr 13, 2010
By edcaroleg "Ed & Carole G."
This is an excellent belt, it's made of high quality material and works very well in my Craftsman riding mower. It is priced considerably below the equivalent belt from Craftsman.

Even though this is a low priced item, the seller went out of his way to correct my mistake and send me the proper belt, for which I very much appreciate!

5Fits and works great!  Oct 18, 2013
By TooMuchStuff
Replaced the belt since I had the deck off for maintenance and a couple of new pulleys anyway. This belt was a perfect replacement. I've mowed an acre 3 or 4 times since it was installed.

NOTE: You MUST install the belt correctly or it will get chewed up, regardless of brand. There is a routing diagram sticker on the mower deck. Also make sure that you get the belt under the belt guides properly. If the belt is rubbing on a belt guide then the belt will fail quickly.
