Darn exciting...... :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

 

I know coloured belts have always been available, but at a premium price.

 

Today, I opened my package of goodies I ordered Sunday night, from Banta Saw, and

found these pretty red belts. :dancingbanana:

They're being sold under the "Rotary" label with a Stens part#. They're made

in China. "Red China" I guess. They are Kevlar.

 

For some time now, I've been buying the Pix belts from A&I supply. Blue Kevlar, made

in India. That blue colour, just doesn't fit well, with the red or yellow Massey's.

 

I'm starting to think that cabin fever has finally set in, if this is what's turning my crank. :smilewink:

 I got them for my MF16, mower deck belts, and at the time I thought they looked funny not being black.

I guess Red belts on a Red tractor would be good now that I think of it.

But what if you have a Green tractor or a Yellow tractor???
