How to find out what belt to order: Weed Eater VIP riding mower

Hello,

I've called two places and they can't seem to tell me what type of belt my mower should have. I can't seem to find out on the internet either. The mower is a Weed Eater VIP brand 42". Model #: HD3K4E9

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Brandon

Electric PTO or manual?

If manual, it should take a 144200 or 144959 belt. These are 88" and 95" respectively.

Thank you very much for the quick reply (if I don't get my lawn mowed I'm going to start getting nasty letters. It's only half mowed)

Is an electric PTO just a switch that engages the blade vrs pulling a handle to engage the blade?

My old belt was totally destroyed. How could I go about figuring out which of these belts to use?

Thanks,
Brandon

The IPL that I found shows you have a manual engagement lever deck belt number 144200
