Belts are hard to give expected lifespans to. There are a whole lot of different variables. I have seen belts fail at 1 hour and at over 1000 hours. If a belt fails twice the same way is the usually when someone figures out there is an issue. Anytime a belt fails i recommend inspecting each pulley for play, bearings out, rough spots on the pulley where the belt rides by spinning pulley with your finger sitting where the belt rides to notice imperfections. Also i like to look at the entire belt when its on to make sure there is nothing loose or out of place that can hit it. I would rather spend the extra 10 minutes than shelling out another $50 to realise something is wrong...
