Do you use a particular brand?
Sorry for late reply...kept forgetting to check

It's a NAPA Premium XL ribbed V belt. There are probably better ones out there, but that's all they had on hand at the time in the way of cogged belts. Seems to me (with what little experience I have) that these belts need to be tightened less over time as well.
