    I have ordered 2 times from 2 different vendors and received the same WRONG Oregon replacement belts. At least, I think they are wrong because there is quite a size difference. Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think.

    looks wrong to me... did you verify the part number you ordered vs what you got?

    Yes. I verified the part number when I ordered them from the first vendor and again when I ordered form the 2nd vendor. BTW, this is on a Husqvarna 48 WB with ETS. I couldn't find genuine Husqvarna belts so I had to order aftermarket and all there seems to be in the aftermarket are belts from Oregon, which are apparently wrong. I would hate to have to go to the dealer on what should be a simple fix. But I may have to. I have already spent probably $140 on belts that don't fit. Hopefully LandscaperPro will help me out, because mowpart.com sure didn't.

    Bet if you had went to the dealer initially you would have gotten what you needed and saved time as well as money.

    Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it. But thanks for pointing out the obvious. Now, do you have any other suggestions. Changing a belt isn't supposed to be a big deal. Certainly not something to go to the dealer about, unless you are not mechanically inclined, which I am and very much so. Someone has their part numbers wrong, either the Husq. manual or Oregon. So let's try to get to the bottom of this shall we.

    It's a belt drive.

    I think Rotary makes a drive belt for the Husq. I believe that is what I used last year when I replaced mine.
