I e-mailed gravely and asked them what size the wheel belts were on my mower. Ther replied 52.797 inches long and .547 inches wide. can anyone convert the decimal to a fraction?? I am trying to find the belt else where than my gravely dealer. So anybody good at this stuff??

Thanks!! snapper

hmmm...now to find a belt that is measured in thousandths of an inch... :)

in the same vein, how much can 'play' is there in belt sizes?

in other words would a belt that is 1/4'' or 1/8'' or 1/2'' too long or short still work effectively?

1/2" in play is the recommended if I remember correctly

On a gravely, there is two of these belts each wheel to drive the wheel. The old one measured about 53 1/4" on the out side of it. So i was wondering what these decimals figured out to.

For all practical purposes, the belt is slightly over 52 and 3/4 inches long, and is almost exactly 35/64ths wide, if I figured right, but that is only 3/64ths wider than a half inch, so something tells me a 52 or 53 inch long, 1/2 inch wide belt would work fine. I dont know what kind of set up you are talking about, but I'm assuming there is an idler pulley that would easily allow for that much play. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Neill
