Farmall Cub w/FH Woods 59 belt size

Postby Xperimental » Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:26 pm

I have searched previous posts without success but I'll bet someone here knows the answer. I am trying to find the belt size for the Woods 59 on a Farmall Cub w/ fast hitch. This is the mower with the chain driven mule drive.

Hi,
There is one Woods owner's manual for the 59-CF 1 in the manuals at Quick links at the top left of the page. Then go to PDF manuals. Then OEM Implement and Attachment Manuals and Brochures.
The owner's manuals have much info, and show which way to twist the belt.
The manual shows the Woods belt number, but not the length, that I saw anyway.
The manual is from 1959, so they could have changed the belt number since then.
You could call a dealer that sells Woods mowers and ask them about the number, or what the current number is.

There is another manual shown for a 59-CF 6, but it is a manual for a 42 mower, at least when I looked at it. Good luck. :)

I used a B210 (213" long) for my 59CF-1. More here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=94337&hilit=Belt

The 1469 equivalent belt (B133) was 77" too short for me. Recommend you confirm with a thick rope routed through the pulleys.

That the factory recommended belt is 77" short is quite odd. Thanks for letting me know. I will post what I find fits my mower when I have it sorted out.
