No, that's not quite my problem. When a quality belt is new it doesn't quite want to fully release, it drags. Once it softens up, it's fine. If an owner buys the WH brand belts, which are more pricey, they don't have this problem.

Thats a material issue or size issue then.

I'll cast another vote for Kevlar belts as I can't recall ever having to replace one. More money up front but well worth it in the long haul.

I have a Ag grade belt from Farm & Fleet on my WH. It's been on there for 3-4 years.

 

If you are replacing belts frequently, you should check for size errors or alignment issues.

 

FYI On a WH, the belt guard is absolutely essential for correct belt alignment.

Generally use the blue ones from TSC, with one exception, I get any JD drive belts directly from the dealer.
