HELP with PTO drive roller chain SIZE for Woods 59 Mower

Postby NJIHFARMALLGUY » Thu Jun 25, 2020 5:11 pm

Hi All, my yellow/white international standard sized cub uses a PTO gear drive and requires a roller chain that runs the lower belt pulley system and belt. My chain is worn out, its super stiff/rusted from sitting, keeps popping off from being bound-up, is overly stretched out and the lower pulley adjustment is set at it's max/won't allow for further tightening. I'm trying to learn what size replacement chain i need to purchase and where I might get one or have one made. Many thanks for any info! Mike

Take your chain to a good lawn mower/hardware/mill supply and they can help you ID the chain. Probably can sell you the parts. PM me if you don't find it and I'll check and see what's on mine.

Mike, welcome to the forum. After you have 2 posts you can access the manuals list. There's a folder/section on Woods mowers. You should be able to download the owners/parts manual from the list.

Surplus Center is a good source for roller chain.

Thanks All for your responses. I went to a local small engine repair shop and he matched that it was #50 roller chain. Made me a new one and I was out the door in 10 minutes for $11. Time to cut some grass?

Messicks has very nice online parts diagrams to help you identify Woods parts if you need anything going forward. https://www.messicks.com/wo/95203 has identified the chain as "46 LNKS NO 50 RO- 46-Link, #50 roller chain"
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!
