Which mower do you have? - (make and model)

I believe it is a woods mower deck! Not sure nothing available on the deck to read. Has been painted over. Any ideas on how to identify the model? Thanks for your help

Hi Troll,

If you have a 5/8 rope fit it around the pulleys the way the belt goes and
mark it and measure. If you have a 1/2 inch garden hose use it and
do the same thing this will be close. When measuring this way you will
want to adjust the pulleys to their shortest positions. The belt will stretch.
Also, I would substract 1-2 inches off the total length because of the
way the rope or hose rides in the "v" groves on the pulleys. This operation will work better if you have two people.

1 belt, or 3?

My Woods L59 is set up with one loooong belt running all of the pulleys, but this doesn't look the same as the implement photos on the server...

Do you guys have 3 separate belts?

Also, I can't get to the server since about 8:00 tonight...
