I have 2 woods 59 mowers, one has a belt, the other does not. where does one find the 4152 belt for these, and does anyone know what the length is? Are there multiple sources, and , approximately what do they cost? Is a Woods dealer the only option?
Curious minds want to know.

Take the old one to NAPA or almost any parts house. They can get them if they aren't in stock.

I had a problem getting one for mine from NAPA- To long of a belt for there sources. I went to the local International dealer and he had one. It wasn't to much- I think around 37.99 if I remeber right. I still saved my old one just in case.

This is my opinion from experience. The Woods belt outlasts a generic belt by a large margin. The extra price paid initially for the Woods belt ends up being cheaper than the less expensive belt.

any bearing / seal store or industrial supply store will have or can get it for you. If its a woods 59-C it takes a B-210 inch belt. woods wants $110 for the belt where othere mentioned will be aroung $40 to $50

Same for Kubota. Couldn't get through a season with an aftermarket deck belt. Bought a genuine Kubota belt and replaced it 14 years

Same here Billy Bob. The aftermarket belt (Gates) lasted about 3 hrs.
The neighbor has a Yanmar, with a Woods belly mower, same experience. The Woods belt for it only costs a few bucks more, but lasts about a hundred times longer. I know the Woods belts are Kevlar, but I think there's more to it than that.

Usually if a belt fails it because of improper instillation or abuse. In my many years of experionce with the woods 59 The woods belt last a long time. I have used replacment belts made by goodyear and they last just as long.. I doubt woods make their own belts infact I think Goodyear makes them for woods.I have no proof of this but I have heardit somewhere. I am currently useing a woods 59 on a cub to cut 5 acres of heavy grass. the goodyear belt has been running well for over 8 years. I have had belts brake to. I suspect some junk got into the pulleys causing this.

Last year, I bought a set of new blades for the Woods59 from the local woods dealer. I checked around first, and the blades were the same price as I saw other reputable places (like Carter and Gruenwalt) and not much more expensive than seen on eBay. I wasn't buying them off eBay, no way. The dealer even had the correct blades in stock.
When I need a new belt, I plan to go to the dealer to get it. I haven't priced them yet, but I figure the story will be the same as it was for the blades.

Tractor supply has the correct blades also. I beleive they are slightley thicker and are much harder metal. I got a couple sets for $7.00 for each blade. I dont now what woods wants. everyting I have ever needed is way out of line form them. One time i needed 3 complet spindles. New! It cost me $175 for each complete new spindle. I thought that was out of line!

I use DP Brown of Saginaw MI. I buy the Kevlar belt and have had the one belt on my mower since 1999 and have not had a problem. at that time it was 1/3 the price of woods. I cut 2-3 acres per week.
try to get a good quality kevlar belt.
