HI Guys; has anyone used this belt supplier ( VBELTS4LESS) they have a really good cross reference for wheel horse and john deere belts but they seem to cheap, toro wants $69.95 for belt 110265 they want $8.59, toro wants $107.00 for belt 99-3904 they want $13.35, they even show the cross ref with belt sizes and they are correct. is toro really ripping us off to that extent, i am thinking of taking a chance even if they wear faster as the cost is about 80% less than toro, any thoughts farmer john

yes toro is expensive especially for wheel horse stuff, they want us collectors to pay them for buying up the company and ruining the line and still want to call the crap they sell whell horse,i would prefer not to give them any money, i have looked all over for that 141 belt got a 140 no good 141 1/2 no good unless i increase the idler pully size

I've placed several orders through vbelts4less and I have been very satisfied. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!

Generally, for applications like ours, make sure you get a Kevlar belt. The part number will usually end in K. They are more expensive than a standard fractional horsepower belt but last much longer.

I've heard mixed reviews on them.
IMO At such low prices they cant be that great of a belt....
Normally the OEM belts are made to special specifications and material which is why most are pricy.

Guess it might depend on things like a clutching type , if it would work as good a OEM , still because I'm CHEAP I might try one to see how it holds up if there was a big difference in price , Al

Thanks Farmer they are just 100 miles south of me I will have to give them a try. Service should be pretty good for me being close.
