Need a belt. I removed deck. The deck has a diagram showing how to route belts. The diagram has 2 belts. I need the one labeled "Upper Deck". I have look in the manual and called the 1-800#. They say it is a 954-0498. It is a long belt 70-80" +/- it was stretched and I forgot the exact length. Deck has 3 blades. Manual PTO. Additionally, I need the top belt. The lower belt is still good. It is quite long also. It may be that both belts are same length.

  • Not so easy to install but not the fault of the deck belt. The belt is working great.
    The deck belt was in great condition, arrived as scheduled and is exactly what I ordered.

    Troy Built Replacement Belts
    I followed links for OEM parts however there was some confusion as to whether they were the correct belts. They fit perfectly though. They arrived in about 5 business days.
    Gary - June 24, 2019 Verified Purchase
    I recieved the wrong part
    I ordered a deck belt by phone for my mower and gave the representative the exact model number for my machine and recieved a the wrong belt! I also was unable to find my model on the website is the reason I called. I'm giving 2 stars because they didn't charge me for return shipping.
