last night i did the rpm check on my N84snow caster.
both belts brand new, engine on throttle lock (approx 3300 rpm.)

test # 1 stock case 9/16 belt 2560 rpm at the jack shaft, 871 rpm at the auger.

test# 2 gates #6982 belt 5/8 wide 2590 rpm at the jack shaft.882 rpm at the auger.

so, it appears that the belts are a TOSS up.
i will run the green one this season,and then compare it to the case one that has one season on it.
thank you.boomer

I have 2 seasons on my TSC 5/8" blue belt with the same setup. The belt still looks very good ... I tried a TSC blue 1/2" belt first and it only lasted 1 month but it got worked hard. Thank's for the rpm test results, that's good to know ...

I've got a Case 224 and 38" snowcaster and yes, a 1/2 x 75 does work, but the belt I found that fit the best is Gates PoweRated 6977 5L770K 21/32" x 77"
