I'm sorry that I did not have the presence of mind to ask which model sweeper it fit, however, the number on the belt is 38528-034. There were at least a dozen of those belts hanging there, so they should be readily available. $5.99 + .37 (for the governor) = $6.36. I'm going to go back and get a spare, however, I don't plan on using it for a long time.

Nice tip, though!

Do Not Overload it !!!!!!!!!
it says 3 pound but that is the sand water and cleaner and bolts. I put what would amount to a set of front and rear lugs(20) and a set of square wheel bolta and nuts ( in a load). Put some degreaser powder tide or mean green or your favorite cleaner put some sand and water and let it tumble for about 12 hours . I have cleaned 100 plus pounds of bolts and hardware and it does a good job.
