You should be able to measure the width with a tape measure. Yours must have two belts does it?

Yes, theyre both 5/8". I had bought new belts before but unfortunately I dont know the sizes anymore. If you have the mowers model number, look it up on partstree.com.

All else fails, you said you had a local shop and you are changing it anyways.  Take the old one with you and match it up. Very Happy

Yeah that's probably a good idea. They might even have one of those belt measuring tools and they could tell you the length.

Sounds about right. Worst case scenario you return or exchange them. But generally they dont stretch too much on account of the kevlar cording.
