How/Where to Buy Replacement Belt

Howdy All,

I'm repairing a non-Prusa printer and need to replace its belts.  I'd like to buy the same type belt as my MK3S has but in a longer length (maybe 5 or 10 meters), so that I'll have some available for future printer maintenance and repair.  My MK3S's belt is labeled with "GATES POWER GRIP GT LL-2GT RF", and it is 6mm wide (although it's curious that the label doesn't seem to specify the width).  Doesn't anyone know where I can buy this replacement belt?

Thanks,

A.J.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I found many similar offers on eBay, but I want to be SURE than I get the exact same type of belt.  The best price I've seen is $29.79 for 5 meters at Hictop 3D Printer.  I've also found listings at Filastruder, E3D-Online, and Printed Solid.  In all cases I can be reasonably sure that it's the exact same belt because they show a picture of the belt with the same "GATES POWER GRIP GT LL-2GT RF" printing on it.  I'll probably check AliExpress too, but I've received fakes from some (not all) of their vendors, so I always worry a bit when I order from them.

If you want to be sure, you have to buy it from PR.

On ebay/Amazon/Aliexpress it's always a hit or miss. If it's really cheap then most likely it's not the same. I would buy it from the trusty stores you've already listed.  PR has also changed the belt supplier over time, so there is no "the one Prusa belt".

Login to your account, select spare parts for your printer tab. There you will find the belts. If you don't see this tab, contact Live Support and they will fix it for you (requirement is that you've bought this printer before).

I would buy from someone selling real  gates rubber belts , they can be identified by the tooth side having embedded red fibers. prusa doesn't always use actual gates belts. i think e3d does stock real gates belts.
