Hi.. new to the site.

I have an 2007 660 Rhino. Located on a ranch in central Oregon. Rides on some serious hills. 1500ft. climbs in low gear is not uncommon. Im noticing a slight loss of speed.. minor to the point were I'm not sure if imagined or not. Other wise the machine runs great... very impressive machine.

That said, what would be a rough geustamate of the life span of the belt ???

Its the original, are there better aftermarket belts availible ???


Thanx very much...

My belt had 3600 miles on it an it was still in spec, the belts in the rhinos last a long time because the belt is always tight and never slips

I have 5000km or 3000 miles on my 09 700 belt and it's still over 31 mm. The new one I bought just in case is just under 32 mm so my belt is still good.

and also if your going to be on those hills look in to a hot rod sheave it will be night and day for the low end torque. hills is where you will see the difference.

I have over 10,000 miles and 700 hours on an 07 700. I've been through three sets of tires and one partial tranny rebuild and still use it on the farm in Costa Rica every day.
