We have a Husqvarna lawn tractor 15 hp 42 inch, the first couple of deck belts lasted for years, even one bought online. I got one locally and it only lasted for a couple of years, and now we bought one online this spring and it doesn't look so good. I guess we need to specify Kevlar next time. I have checked all the bearings and sheave alignment and can't find anything wrong.

I know you said you checked belt alignment, but are the pulley flanges themselves rusty?

If you check belts at auto parts stores like NAPA. Pay attention to the part numbers.

Look for ones that end with W.
For example a belt part number 4L880 (made for a car/truck) will not last half as long as a belt with part number 4L880W ("fractional Horse Power" belts made for equipment).

I have posted several times about the blue Kevlar belts 5hat tractor supply has. Had very good results. Someone else is going to post about oem but I think you should buy one of the blue belts and give it a try. They even have a cross over guide for the correct size. The area for the belts looks like a whole bunch of pigeon holes.

Thanks! We don't have a TCS but I'm sure I can find one somewhere.

Just looked at one of my mowers today. That belt has been on for over a month and three couple of acher mowings. Looks very close to new. Still very happy with them. Nice to find something that works.
