First of all, Happy New Year 2014 to all of you!
How we have seen recently there is a huge polar vortex affecting our country with tons of snow and temperatures below 0 degrees. So we have had a lot of questions and requests for snow blower and snow thrower machines.
Due to the extreme temperatures, some of this machinery breaks down very easily and one of the parts that gets damaged at first is the drive belt because it gets overused due to the heavy work needed to remove all this thick snow.
In this cases when there is not a simply average snow season, this equipment better be taking seriously and the best way to preserve the machine so it keeps working well and compelling its function is to use a heavy duty power drive belt.
Fractional and Conventional V-Belts As well as standard black rubber V-drive belts, Lawn mowers & and other agricultural machinery often have drives using multiple pulleys and idlers, which operate by a clutching action. This application is very specific and demands special attention to the design and manufacturing of any belts used in the drive.
“Kevlar” material power drive belts have tensile cords that combine limited stretch with extraordinary strength and durability. These belts are regularly manufactured in black color, but Kevlar ones are more like a blue or green color.
Available in Kevlar cord constructions, the range includes light duty, classical, wedge & narrow-v sections. (3L, 4L, 5L, A, B, RA, RB, RC, RD, SPZ, SPA, SPB, SPC SECTIONS).
In order to choose the correct Kevlar belt that you might need see the following size chart:
