I'm about 3/4 of an hour east of Syracuse just outside of Utica in the town of Whitestown.

The belt is on the way,,,but it sure wasn't cheap, $34.00, plus freight and they also nailed me for tax. Used a company here in Arkansas in hopes to get it here sooner.

You're paying freight to a local shop? I guess my shop bucks the kill-or-be-killed trend. So long as I don't special order a part for a customer and I place such on a regular order (with a minimum of course so I don't have to pay foolish freight charges) then I don't charge the customer any freight charge. Fuel surcharge, handling charge, shipping charge, restocking charge, wasting-my-time-charge! Whoa, come on fellas, where does it end? It's unbelievable the number of charges some places impose!!!!

Is it the OEM belt or aftermarket? I've been getting aftermarket belts from A&I way cheaper, some have the OEM number on them. Think most have been PIX

Yes it is a OEM belt,,,reason being it is in Arkansas and I was hoping to get it here in my hands sooner so I could get this job done,,,,,but of coarse that isn't happening either,,,that seems to be the coarse here lately. I'll look into the A&I.. I normally use OEI in western Arkansas but They didn't have a Toro cross oh well.

No Puey Iam not paying frieght to a Local shop,,,,,this place that I ordrerd that belt is a Toro dealer in Western Ar and at least 3 hrs away from me. I normally use OEI for my parts but they didn't have the belt and don't even have a look up for Toro IPL. Stange yes I know but they do a pretty good job but I may have to start looking for others. I want to try to stay away from Dealers to order parts. My work is to be done on my part I know.

Thank You for this information on A&I, 38racing. I have a dealer here in Searcy, AR and I will start giving them a try.
