V-Belt Maintenance Tips

  • Check for cracked, worn, or frayed belts. On matched belt sets, always replace the complete set. If just one belt is bad, uneven load on belts, pulleys, bearings, and shafts can occur.
  • Check pulley grooves to make sure they are not worn, damaged, or aligned incorrectly. Poor belt to pulley contact will result in rapid wear and short life.
    With well over 900 belts from which to choose you can be certain we have the right belt for your machine.
