Re: Simplicity Pro not worth the $

I was under the impression that they had corrected that issue. I would try another dealer as stated, also I believe there must be something on the net about other folks having the slipping drive issues. Might be worth a try and yes I feel your pain you pay good money for what you think is going to be a reliable competent piece of equipment only to be severely disappointed. Others have stated the quality associated with big brands names just isnt there anymore it seems...
Re: " V " Belt Clarification

Myself I would just use the OEM belts I have always found they just seem to work better I have gone to napa and KAMAN to match up belts before and have gotten lucky and also had belt issues so I like to stick to OEM I have a cub cadet and a MTD lawn tractor and the MTD belts are pretty tuff and seem to hold up well so I just go to mtd distributor we have locally they stock everything and go with it!!!

I think some of the new higher end snappers are advertising they have a gear drive no ffriction disk! ! The old Toro power shifts had a peerless transmission in them no slipping with them!!!!!!
