Easy fix

This belt was easier to instal and it works just like when mower was new, glad I made the purchase, the original lasted 14 years, seems like this one will too.

Lawn mower belt

Great to still get Craftsman and Sears parts. Arrived soon after it was ordered, good service.

Easy to install

Installation was easy, all access parts were easy to remove. The one thing that I did do in order for the belt to engage was to adjust the cable tensioner that is located on the handle bar.

Easy to install

Makes a big difference in traction. Suggest changing drive wheels at same time.

Easy to install !

Installed new belt and carburetor bowl gasket. Used Vaseline to hold gasket in place, while putting bowl in place. Worked great.

Mower drive belt

Piece of cake to install, (and my hands are arthritic now) maybe 20 minutes tops. Since I had the mower blade off sharpened that too which I do anyway a few times a year
