Bob Cat Parts & Belts.. Found a source

Just did some searching for the parts that some folks are looking for and found some contact info.
Yankee snowblower had made a few posts here but has not been active for a while. It looks like he is now under way on facebook, and has the elusive impeller belts, and other parts.
Here's a link.

Hopefully you will be able to get the parts you need to keep what I think is the best SnowBlower yet made running for another 20+ yrs

I found sources for them priced as little as $5-$6 each on the internet.

The reason I by from JayDee was the man that owned it spent his valuable time helping me to find the right belt. I must have made dozens of calls and none knew as much about belts as he did. I want to support his business. He has passed away now. His customer support and knowledge was outstanding. Theres a lot to be said for that in this day and age. I don't mind spending those few extra dollars. I was sold belts buy others that would not fit. Thanks for the info!

No explanation needed,I was just emphasizing that the belts can be had very cheaply-much less than from those who own stocks of OEM belts and charge ridiculous prices for them.

I have a former Bobcat dealer not ten miles from me.He stuck it to me about 10-15 years ago because he knew that ,at the time,he was my only source.

I tried the belt that Gates recommends in my belt catalog and it didn't come anywhere near fitting the machine and was destroyed in minutes.I even contacted Gates and told them their belt WAS NOT a useable sub.They thanked me and said they would check into it.I can guarrantee they're still listing the same belt to this day.

I think it was a gates belt to that didn't fit right. Well at least we don't have that worry any longer. I need to find some bearings for mine now. I'm luck theres a place not far from me Future Bearing that my neighbor said he bought some from.
