Replace belts on 10 year old 924118 8524?

Not had any problem with belts and they looked ok (to me) yesterday. I realize no set answer. I'm just asking for others' view. Live in north central CT and don't get a lot of snow events. Should I replace soon or wait until I see deterioration or wait until 15 years old?
I would not do the work but take to the local shop where I bought it (10 years ago).
Thanks,
Fred

Thanks William! That's just the type info I'm looking for.

I now have one vote for "If ain't broke don't fix it."

Welcome to the forum Fred! I've had lots of 10 year old vehicles still running with the original belts and they had WAY more miles on them than your snowblower. Score two for ain't broke not fixin'
