Hi, 
I recently acquired a Wheelhorse 312-8. One of the belts needs replacing, as whichever one was put on previously is too long/has stretched. It is the one going from the PTO, around the pulleys and to the blades.

The model number is E1-12k801

I'm looking for a part number or specification for this belt. Would anyone be able to help with this?

I've checked the Toro/Wheelhorse website, but cant seem to find it and have trawled around various websites.

I have seen information regarding a belt on this mower, part number 7473, but I believe this is the drive belt going to the rear wheels?

Thanks
A1988

It is called a mower drive belt. The other one is called a spindle belt. They are listed with the deck so need to know what model of deck you have.
How many blades?
What is the width of cut? 36", 37", 42" or 48"? Not the width of the deck.
Is it a rear discharge or side discharge?

Thanks Garry,

It's got 3 blades and it is side discharge. As it is down in my friends garage since it stopped, I'll have to ask him to check the width of the cut and get back to you.

If you can get an original Toro belt they fit better and last longer.
The 48" decks are listed but not recommended by Toro for the 312-8. 12 horse power is on the low side for a 48" deck.

Thanks Garry for all the information. It's a great help.
Got it checked and you're right, it is a 42" cut width.

The 1988 model E5-42MS01 deck is listed for your tractor but not necessarily what you have. Belts will be the same for others but check closely if you get into replacing spindle bearings and check the center hole if replacing the blades. They could be different indicating an older or newer model deck.
