    Has anyone found a source for an alternate drive belt replacement?

    I agree $50-60 each belt for my belt driven wb.
    You can get a car belt for practically nothing.

    I agree, the price of OEM belts is nuts. Not sure about the drive belts, your best bet would probably be an autoparts store. I do, however, get my ($60 OEM) deck belts at Tractor Supply. They run $28 for a Kevlar replacement. Not a bad deal at all. :blob3: :blob3:

    We sell more aftermarket belts than OEM. I believe the aftermarket belts are as good as or better than the OEM, and a lot cheaper. As long as they are made with Kevlar or Aramid.

    Rotary with kevlar,do not break,chunck first and vibrate so you stop before the belt shreads and gets into the clutch and spend a lot of time taking clutch apart to get remains of said belt out of a hot clutch in the middle of a yard. Saves time to get back to mowing.

    I buy all my belts at the autoparts stores. All you have to do is order them if the store doesnt have them. If you order them often enough the store will start stocking them. I always keep extras on hand and pick up a new one as soon as I have to replace one.
