Belt Tensioner features factory adjusted design.
Mechanical Components and Assemblies

Belt Tensioner features factory adjusted design.

Based on fixed motor principle that relies on movable idler to properly tension belt rather than tensioning with motor mounted to moving slider plate, Belt Tensioner takes guesswork out of changing and adjusting spindle drive belt in field. Pre-drilled and aligned tensioning brackets ensure new belt is set to original specifications, eliminating possibility of over-tensioning. Once motor is...
