Belt lifespan

Under adult driving conditions, dry dusty dirt roads ,how often do you replace drive belts? Every 1000 miles seems excessive, but way better than trying to replace in the field. Thoughts???

I bought a spare (+ the requisite tools for belt change) and keep them handy, but don’t think I’ll need them for some years to come.  I’m in low range a lot (snow plowing) and that’ll make a belt last and last.  - Mark

I wonder if low range has more torque and would be harder on the belt? How many mikes do you have on your unit?

Low range is much easier on the belt because it allows the belt to upshift sooner and the upshift allows more belt to contact the primary sheave especially with larger tires or if you are in rough or boggy terrain, pushing snow or pulling a load.

But driving around in low range all the time even on the level is not required or recommended.🙂
