922020 Belt "Brand" Question

To start this forum has really helped me with maintance issues and plans for the future concerning snowblowers.

My first post concerns the belt brand "PIX"
I can get all 3 belts for $23 on Amazon. I have checked part numbers and belt sizes and they match.

The belts are supposed to contain Kevlar. They arent OEM belts but the price is so good I really want to try them.

My 76 Ariens that I paid $75 runs great and has very little rust. A well maintained seldom run unit.

Are these Good belts or should I be looking for something else??

Pix

I used these on my garden tractor and they worked just fine. I saw no fraying or early cracking on my end.

They seem alright in my humble opinion.

If you really want to try them, get a set. Price is low, and if they are good, you're happy, if they don't last, you're not out a lot of cash, and you know for sure. You can let everybody here know about your good or bad experience.

Work fascinates me.

Update:
Amazon for some reason cancelled my original order. I ended up with a PIX brand auger belt that really INCREASED the performance of my blower. Even with heavier snow it did the job a lot better.

I still haven't installed the 2 thinner belts from an American made brand. Looks like Sunday I will install them (I should have Youtubed how before I did the first install). I found a video with the same machine just a 4hp instead of a 5hp engine. Looks super easy to do now that I have watched the video.
