Not sure why we are blowing belts on my F7- blew one last year and just blew one today. Checked alignment seems to be right on. We are using stock 020 belt.

Not to hijack the thread ... but Looney - have you found the equivalent for the F8's and F1000's? Maybe I just listen to my own advice in other threads and use the search function :lol:

I have been told the stock belt for the F1000 is a good one, just expensive. I think the F8 takes a different one, but not sure. I would like to try the XS out just to see the difference. Dan at ODs will get some in when they are available.

You're right ... the F8 and F1000 take different belts. The F8 is using the 046 belt ... not 100% sure on the F1000 but I think it's the 060 belt.

Chris, they make one yes. Do you know the dimensions of your stock F8 belt?

Unfortunately, no I don't Chris. I'm one of the lucky snow-check customers still waiting for their sled due to the 14" track being on back order bang your head

The sled isn't the problem ... that's been in for a month now. It's the damn track!!!! bang your head I love my dealer, but I know they dropped the ball on this one. It's not really Cat's fault.

Thanks for the PDF Chris :beer_cheers:

As far as the sled & track goes, I'm about 6" of snow away from saying "screw it" and telling the dealer to just put the stock track back on and screw the 14" track altogether. If there was good snow up by Hayward, the decision would have been made yesterday. But until the weather changes for the better, I have no reason not to wait for the 14" track to come the 2nd week of Jan.
