The traction drive belt is frequently specified as 3/8", not much power goes through that belt and a 3/8" belt is fine for the application.Drove 30 minutes to the dealer today. They had the 07204700 in stock. Number on it and everything. However is in 3/8" wide, the one i have on it now is 1/2". Which one is the way to go? You would figure the 1/2" would be better...no?
The belt in the post you show (07210800) is stated as being for a model 924073, your model is 910010. If you got the 07204700 belt number from the manual for your model and serial number then that is the Ariens recommended belt and it should work. Note that the belt that oneacer states he uses (6836) is 1/2x36.I guess maybe i need the 07210800 instead?
I am also wondering if a 1/2 wide belt would be better than the 3/8. That one belt is responsible for powering the drive as well as the clutch for the sno-thro. Especially with a Predator 212, like mine and others, these belts are being pushed harder than they were with the stock Tecumseh engine. The 3/8 belt wears out relatively quickly. What is the opinion on this is the 1/2 a better option than the 3/8 in this case? Also in ypur specific situation how well does the 1/2 wide belt work? Any slippage or other issue's, or does it work well. I'm getting ready to order new belts now. Here is a photo of the wear on the 3/8 belt.Drove 30 minutes to the dealer today.

But it didn't come with a 1/2! They came 3/8!!My thought process is if it came with 1/2”. It should be replaced with the same. While a smaller diameter may work, If the exact dimension belt is available , get it!
DON"T BUY THE 'KEVLAR' BELTS ON AMAZON!I just got that 07204700 number belt for my 10,000 from Amazon.
Amazon.com : Ariens Snow Thrower Replacement Belt, Part # 72047, 07204700. Made With Kevlar. : Snow Trower Belt : Garden & Outdoor
The ad showed a cogged belt.
It said 'by Ariens' in the ad.
With Kevlar, too.
I paid more than I could've got locally and waited 4 days to receive a plain ol', uncogged belt in a shipping bag.
Made in India.
No indication at all it is Ariens.
It fit great, we'll see how it runs.
