Where is the best place to get the blue Kevlar V Belts. Need a 96.1 "(96") X 5/8" for my Simplicity 1690039 tiller on the Homelite. I'm still using the original 105340 belt that came with it. It is cracking bad and is worn now. Just wondering. I see Amazon has them with free shipping for $ 25.99. If I can save a few bucks I will. Nothing close to me without driving 50 miles or so one way. Would like to buy local to help businesses but nothing local makes it hard to do. I really like the looks of the garden after the tilling is done. That Simplicity / AC tiller is really good.  Thanks.                                                                                                                               Roger

   I assume by nothing locale you mean no napa or tsc store they both have good belts.  I would check with our sponsors most of the time if you aren't in a hurry (waiting for shipping) then they are very competitive, if you have a few belts that need ordering you can go to vbeltsforless.com they are really cheap on belts and have a good quality but they get you on the shipping, unless you order a few it isn't worth it.  I usually order a bunch from them once a year.

I can get you either the blue ones or I sell an American made red kevlar belt as well, most of the blue ones are made over seas and really fail in comparison to the US ones

 

For that size I'd have to order it though probably have it tuesday.

 

 

Red-USA       $ 39.99 shipped

Just came back from the store and picked up a cheap one for now, had to finish the garden and tiller kept jumping out. ( belt is that stretched) Bolens that sounds good I will get with you when I'm ready. I would rather buy from the USA than overseas. Thanks. I will get back to you. No we don't have a NAPA or anything like that. We are a rural area a long ways from a big town or city. ( We like it like that). I may be looking for belts for the Sears custom 10XL also, I have to check them. May just order all of them from you at one time. Thanks again.                                                                                                                                           Roger

I would go with the red belts.Been running 1 on my old Sears SS14 for 1 year now and it still looks like new.It does Not slip like the cheap blue belts do when you really work them.

 

 

I'm seriously impressed with mine.Pulled a concrete filled 94 gallon yard roller the other day up and down a very very steep 1/4 acre yard and had Zero belt slippage.

 

Idiot neighbor bought this roller for 1/2 price at TSC and it leaked so he filled it with cement.Way to heavy for his 4 wheeler to pull.http://www.tractorsu...CFYsehgodF8YEMA

Noe yet. SE shop supposed to open in the next couple of months here in town. We will see. I think I will order from Bolens 1000. Might order a couple different sizes as soon as I look at the Sears.                                                                                                                                                                       Roger
