Question for someone. When changing the belts for the drive train is it a must to use JD belts? Or will aftermarket belts work properly? If not what may happen? Slippage? Or damage to transaxle? Are JD belts that much different? Thanks for your input.

JD uses a special pitch belt that you can't buy from a parts house. I always go to the JD dealer for those belts. I hate that it is the only option, but they are not that over prices at my dealer. The only damage that you will have is to the belt and your attitude for having to change them often.

Welcome Rdcd111 to the site.

Texas Deere and Horse is right about the belts on the John Deere garden tractors.
If you have any more questions about your JD 210, there are a lot of great people here that are ready to help.

Thank you for the honest reply. Your right about my attitude. I do have to change them! I ordered 2 from my local Deere dealer. Live and learn. I should have asked first. Thanks you guys. Ray
