Belts for 824

I need to replace the belts on my 824 and the previous owner put Kevlar belts on it. One had quite a deep break in it. The Toro belt spec'ed is a conventional rubber v belt.
I suppose they don't make all that black dust. Do they grip as well in the cold?

I don't know of any snow thrower that comes with Kevlar but I am far from an expert.
I know Kevlar is suppose to be stronger but on a snow thrower is it really an advantage on a snow thrower?

why wouldn't the toro belts grip / work as good as the Kevlar belts, toro belts have been around much longer

Kevlar works fine on my Ariens. The stock Toro belts are sure to have something in them other than basic rubber.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

If you want to buy your belts locally I would favor tractor supply over at auto parts store. I would expect that quality of the belts would be better for the constant load. I am on the coast and I get heavy wet snow the strongest, grippiest available is the only one I would consider ;-)

Pathfinder13, Thanks. I found my local NAPA carries Utility V-belts in both the 3L and 4L profile. The Napa belts are made by Gates whose quality I won't fret over. I don't believe they are Kevlar as I would assume they would say so, and they don't. I am going to buy some Kevlar back ups on line.

Thanks for suggesting Tractor Supply. It is a bit of ride for me to get to one but good to know.

Where do you get your Av Gas?
