Good product, good value.
The belts arrived quickly after my order was placed. I have used one of the four I ordered, and it tracks well, and after an hour of use, it still working like new. The price for the product, even when shipping was factored in, was better than I could obtain locally. I am quite pleased, and will order here again.Tom H
