Unhappy I assumed Tractor Supply Co stocked larger drive belts for mowers

You'd think that with the number of Land Pride (and similar brand) mower decks used on compact utility tractors around this nation that T.S.C. would stock the belts for the various 3pt hitch type mower decks.

NOPE

They do have a wide selection of garden tractor mower deck drive belts. All of which are about 1/2 the length I need. I did a web search on the T.S.C. website after I got home and you apparently can't even order the belt I need. Oh, and their website is horrible for product searches.

So today is rest day ... I'll wait until tomorrow when the real tractor dealership opens up to buy a B136 belt ... of course its supposed to be hot and sunny tomorrow for mowing

Amazon has them. Of course. So worst case is I can get one in a couple days. But I'd prefer to buy local if I can do so.

B136 is a common industrial belt. Go to an industrial supply that carries v belts and they'll probably have it in stock and for less than the dealer.

I'd rather go there and 'shop local' than wait for something to arrive from an internet source ... but I did check a couple internet sources and Amazon has them with free 2 day 'prime' shipping if I need to go that route, other sources would take longer.

Still can't believe that Tractor Supply Co doesn't sell this size belt

Maybe I was too hard on Tractor Supply for not having the belt.

My local dealership doesn't have the belt either.

Ordered it. Should arrive in a few days.

Actually I did that with the mower deck for my old New Holland tractor. Sold the tractor & deck 5+ years ago.

Still have the extra belt

I'll take that belt off your hands, I got through a couple a year when the brackets break holding the gear box in place.

Its actually the same size as one of my Ventrac belts, so no need for me to unload it. Figure as long as I have it the Ventrac belt will never break ... if I send it off to you I'll end up with a broken Ventrac belt in short order.

Sounds like you have a balance or overload problem.

I understand that, buy a spare so you never need it. Just like the minute I throw something away, I need it tomorrow.

YUP, that has happened more times than I can count.

On the bright side the replacement belt arrived via UPS, installed in less 5 minutes (a record time for me) with no bloody knuckles or pinched fingers and is working perfectly
