Dayton V-Belt - Replaced After 6 Years

There are also 2 ways to measure belt length. Inside and outside. For 'A' series v-belts (1/2" wide) one website I visited stated that when measuring their 'A' series belts add 2" if you are measuring on the outside. A 25" belt will measure 27" if measured on the outside. So I tentatively speculate that AHS's item # 200-327 means 27" outside measured length (25" inside), and their item # 200-326 means 26" outside measured length (24" inside).

Yep, like Coaledsweat said, green belts are where it's at. Last virtually forever when they shouldn't.

That Dayton held up pretty good. Didn't even bust!

Looks alot like my neighbors Cub Cadet tractor belt. The drive pulley is on the front of the engine perpendicular to the ground, so the belt goes around that straight down to the ground, then takes a 90° turn to the rear over two 3" or so pulleys, AND twists 90°, then goes on it's way to driving the deck! The belt looked just like that Dayton there 3 seasons ago! I just replaced it for them in May - I have it in my parts hall of fame. Amazing that thing didn't break! Now THAT'S quality! Mowed tall grass and everything!

What would the "green v-belt" equivalent of the Dayton 4L250 be? Brand and item/model number....

For the record Smitty, it was my Cub Cadet mower deck belt that taught me green is mean! :)

One with the Aramid fiber in it. They are not so much green in color though. :roll:
http://www.vbelts4less.com/Kevlar-A-Sec ... _c_55.html

These fibers, and kevlar in particular, typically replace the polyester cords found within a standard belt. Many kevlar belts are even distinguished by the blue color like the one in the photo below

Image

Aramid Fibers, trade names Kevlar, Twaron, Nomex, Technora. Aramid fibers are another group of super-heros of the fiber world. Kevlar and and other polyamides, all conjure up images of ultra strong materials that are elbowing out more conventional construction materials such as steel.

The 4L250 is used on the S260 Coal Gun, while the 4L240 is used on the S130.
