Need to find out belt lengths

    Trying to find out how long the deck belts are for my mowers. I don't want to buy OEM belts because they are overpriced. I checked out several online stores and can find the belts but they never specify the length. I am going to buy them at my local NAPA store.

    My 38" Snapper LT tractor belt is so stretched out that measuring it would do no good.

    Is there a good website that lists the lengths? The owners manuals do not specify either because I am sure they want you to go to the dealer and spend 2 x what I can get them for.

    If all else fails I might be able to cross-reference them at the store.

    Just have the dealer pull up the info. Then take that info and buy it somewhere else. The belt shouldn't have stretched that much, that you can't get a rough measurement. Just take the belt to the NAPA store and match it up to one thats a bit smaller than the current one.
