If you got a big enough engine to power it, it is a beast.....I've got a 12 OHV Tec on that same platform with a 3.5 inch impeller pulley, and it is just right.....

The belt saga continues

The 39.5" belt does fit, but I have to set the tensioner to maximum to get sufficient tension on the belt, and as I expect the belt to stretch out a bit after use, it's not ideal.

As I have another snowblower than can use the 39.5" belt, I'm going to try a 39.3" belt next.

There is a 39.3" Toro belt (PN 26-9671) en route.

A new impeller bearing was installed on Jan 2019 and had had about 90 minutes of runtime since. It wasn't the impeller bearing.

The right belt makes all the difference, guys, especially in a custom setup.

Here's the 39.3" belt. It went on like butter and it's juuuust right (additionally, the tensioner is at minimum and I can adjust as needed going forward).

To recap...

2.75" pulley used a 38" belt (had to be stretched out just a tad by running)
3" pulley used a 39" belt (tensioner was at minimum)
3.5" pulley used a 39.3" belt



According to the part number, it's used by 35 different Toro snowblowers and mowers, so it should be available indefinitely.

Back to waiting for snow, unfortunately.

What I meant to type was... as I'm SURE that we're not getting any more snow this winter, I'm going to run it dry and wait for next winter.
