Hey Everyone...
I have a Ford 535 mower conditioner. The belt for the sickle bar drive broke, so I looked in the owners manual for the belt size and it says "Double A PowerBand"...that doesn't sound like a size to me, but does that make sense to anyone else?
Any idea what "size" this is?

What is a split belt. I have a double pully on the front, a double pully on the rear. I am guessing it takes two belts and no just one that goes around. Can i just take two belts with the groves on the inside and use them instead of the high dollar belt from ford.

I just checked with Ford, the belt is over a hundred bucks. I seen where I can get a belt at napa that has the two v belts made into one belt, is this the belt I need? This belt is a smooth V but the two belts are made together. Two hours tearing it down, i just want to get the right belt. I am also looking for a manual for the 535 hay bine. any ideas?

I went to running 2 singles on ours. Your haybine was actually made by New Idea, for NI it was the model 290 mow/ditioner.

We had the ford, used it up and now have the 290. One benefit of running singles is you don't have to remove the jackshaft to replace the belt. You can just loosen the 4 bolts and pry it over enough to squeeze the belts between the frame and pulley.

Can't remember what size belts we used, but I've got it written down in the manaul. Trouble is, that's in my parents basement 15 miles away at the farm. Main thing to remember is keep the oil and grease off the belts.

Did the two belts work ok? I was in hopes that it will work as i got the rib belts. I was told that it was a 1/2 wide by 49.9 length. One other option is to pay the 117 dollars plus shipping of 14 bucks, my boy just cant afford that at the moment as this is his first project and i see him getting discouraged already. If it is not the hay bine it is something else breaking down. I am trying to keep him positive and stay on top of it with him.

The 2 belts work fine. The sickle belts if I remember are "A" Belts, and the main drive belts are "B". Just don't remember the lengths.

I've had to change the sickle belts once already, but it's more because of the conditions and the belts got gear oil on them when oiling the chain that dirves the crimpers. Can still replace them atleast 2-3 more times before I spend what it would cost for the double belt. Been more careful with the oil and they've lasted a few years already.
