Snowblower belt?

Recommended Posts

mruta

Hi everyone,

We got about 19" of snow in the last 24 hours and I finally decided to try out the snowblower on my B-112.

Anyway, after I sorted out some problems with the tractor itself, the snowblower worked great until something got caught in the auger and burned the belt up.

Can anyone help me with a part number for a replacement belt? I tried a search on here but only found a couple threads and I both were for a very long belt. The belt I am looking for is driven by the crankshaft pulley, goes down to 2 idler pulleys and then a driven pulley. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance!

Old number is 106769. I've found a genuine Simplicity belt last's the longest. I had a new aftermarket belt on my 2110, it lasted 3 driveways, before it snapped.

Thanks for the input, fellas. Seeing that I forgot to pay for membership until today, I didn't see the sticky until rokons post. I saw some people post that they had good luck with the "4L" belts from NAPA. As much as I'd like to try the Simplicity belt, NAPA will have it tomorrow morning, and they are about 4 blocks away. The closest Simplicity dealer is 15 miles away and I can't get anyone on the phone.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the input, guys.

After thinking about Kent's comment, I decided to call the next closest Simplicity dealer to order a belt. That was another unpleasant experience. Like pulling teeth.

Any suggestions for a source online? Possibly a site sponsor?

I'd rather buy a cheaper (even if inferior) belt from my local NAPA who appreciates my business, than support a dealer system that doesn't seem to care one way or the other.

Thanks again!

One of the problems with using the aftermarket belt, is that the belt in general is a PITA to replace. I've looked at replacing it with the blower on the tractor, but always resort to pulling the blower off. Usually 45 minutes to an hour later, I'm ready to go.

I've used NAPA belts before in this application, some were great, some lasted about an hour. No way to tell which one I was getting.

Hello, I bought this belt 2 yrs ago , last year we had 100 inches of snow , It is still in good shape this year, and the price was resonable for a 147 inch belt.

Thanks Ken in Mi

I can tell you that a Gates belt will last about an hour and a half. Punched into a fluffy drift and she just snapped in half. Guess I'll spring for the Simplicity next time. I think they did too much turning in too small of an area on the old single belt FDT blowers.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
