V-Belt Global supply,  vbeltsupply.com  I just ordered a new kevlar belt for my Agrifab snowblower on my Husqvarna lawn tractor, and it's half the price of one from Sears or Agrifab.  I just hope I'm not being   "penny wise and pound foolish "

Places like that always scare me.... Any time you see a Kevlar belt that usually sells for $ 15 and they have it for $2 that just dosent give me much confidence.

I would assume they must be made in china?

Can't really say, but this's from their home page :    "  We are centrally headquartered in Sioux Falls, S.D. Our v-belt distribution centers are strategically located throughout the U.S. and Canada and turn-key distribution model minimizes the v-belt supply chain. Allowing us to offer top quality industrial, farm and turf replacement kevlar v-belts at significantly discounted prices. " 

    I figure for the money, it's worth a shot.  I've paid much more and didn't have much luck with original one. Not postive that the belt IS the problem, but can't see anything out of line or bent, etc.....

I have had very good luck with belts from Vbelts4less, if this one doesn't work out.

These people are located in Sioux Falls as stated and have been good to work with. They are helpful on the phone also and 

I would use them again. There is a lot of good reference information on their site also.

I've used them many times, super prices with good belts.   I think you will be very happy with them (V-Belt) that is.

the "get what you pay for" isn't always true. I get the Gates "Green" lawn and garden belts from motion industries for half or sometimes less than half what the lawnmower shops charge for the same gates green belt

and Grainger? forget em unless you have lots of money to throw away... they are Godawfully High on *EVERYTHING*
