Hmm.. if you follow the eBay link he's sold 117 of them and has 99.9% positive feedback on 92168 transactions.i would be a bit leary of two for $13, they could be an equivalent automotive type belt that a snow blower would eat for lunch.
I believe Pix belts are made in IndiaHmm.. if you follow the eBay link he's sold 117 of them and has 99.9% positive feedback on 92168 transactions.
They are labelled as MTD and Cub Cadet replacements.. but a label is easy to print.
When I google for "Pix" it looks like a bona fide outfit in Ontario with glossy marketing.
I guess I will post a question with the seller and see what they have to say.
I was just hoping someone would actually have hands-on experience with PIX belts. Paying more does not necessarily guarantee a better product.
Presumably folks in the Great White North may know??
Thanks for the reply... that's what I was worried about.I've used Pix belts because they were cheap and they did say made in India. Packaged as Kevlar they seemed not to last very long and shredded leaving only the cords often. I hate to say it but I do find the O.E.M. belts last longer and ARE much more costly. I no longer use Pix or other no name belts, as your fingers get numb fast during the untimely belt change. Where the heck is the snow?????????:blowerhug:
Was the non-cogged comment an FYI or do you prefer them for some reason?The ebay link says those ones are 35.1", but I bet 35" and non cogged could work on your blower too.
Thanks for the reply and especially for the data related to the number of cords in different belts. So clearly.. not all Kevlar belts are created equal. The word "Kevlar" by itself may be necessary.. but not sufficient.. to give a warm fuzzy. That's good to know......
Gates belts rated the worst when we had a rep come in and let us cut belts in half, their "Power rated" belts which supposedly were best they had cut right in half with minimal effort, they only had 2 cords in them while the other American brand ones we cut had 5 kevlar cords and took 2 hands to cut with the snips.
