Default Belt info

I'm rebuilding my 54 inch deck, have all the necessary bearing (Timkin) and cones and seals looking at belts. I've also replaced idler pulleys. Has anyone had experience with these blue Aramid belts slipping under load? I've been told they will slip. Has anyone had this experience ?

I've never used whatever you said.
I do use Dayco belts (gray) all the time with no problems. They're usually half the price of the CC/MTD belts. I get them at Farm and Fleet. Dayco has a cross reference on their website.
I've also used whatever brand belt that Tractor Supply sells (blue) no problems there either.
You just have to make sure length is close and angle are right.

I use the the blue Kevlar banded/wrapped v-belts for everything.

Tillers, blowers, mowers, in 3/8", 1/2", and 5/8". Never had a problem with belts slipping, and they last a good while on the mule drive setups too.

I buy mine from VBeltGuys online.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
