I needed a new belt for my lawnmower, a Bobcat zero turn. The belt is for the hydraulic pumps, not the cutter deck. I wanted to support the local dealer and get a quality part so I went to the local Bobcat dealer. The price was less than what I expected at $22.
But, is this a generic belt? Or do they get the belts in bulk and package them?

If it's not labelled with a manufacturer, by definition it's generic.

Unless you were expecting a high dealer markup, $22 isn't all that cheap for it. I mean you can get the same online for $22 but would add a shipping charge. The cheaper type of generic can be had for $14 delivered:

What more where you expecting? That’s the Bobcat part number on it.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

^ Only because they follow the Snap-on pricing model.

I would never ever reward a company by paying that price, and after seeing what it costs, wouldn't buy that brand again on principle.

I checked, yes there are generic belts cheaper in price but by the time you pay for freight, there's not much in savings. Amazon and ebay are priced about the same. I would bet that belt is OEM from his dealer and the price is not that unreasonable. I don't know of any dealers near me selling generic parts.
