I just picked up a preowned Hydro Pro 28 and am giving it a tune up before we get our first snow South of Boston. I changed the oil (Mobil 1 5W30, and put in a new platinum Champion spark plug. Now I'm thinking about having a spare set of belts on hand, just in case. Is there any reason not to go with aftermarket? A set of 2 Stens direct replacement impeller belts is $26 versus $50 for OEM. The Ariens traction belt is only $18, so I'd go that way, but if I can save $24 and the quality is comparable, why not?

I have used Stens direct replacement belts to replace the matched pair for the auger drive on my ariens 28dlx. They worked great.

I purchased the twin pak .

I have found many manufacturers to have inaccurate belt sizing so I'm careful. My first choice is D&D Power, preferably Kevlar. Second choice is Pix.

Ariens buys their belts from someone. They aren't the belt manufacturer they just buy belts with their name on them.
