Tensioning/
Replacing v-belts
NOTICE
After the first 16 hours of use, the v-belts
will stretch and seat into the pulley grooves.
The v-belts must be properly re-tensioned
after this period to avoid severely reducing
their useful life.
to ensure efficient transfer of power to the spin-
dle, make sure the V-belts are always properly
tensioned and in good condition.
if a V-belt is worn, cracked, or damaged, replace
both V-belts at the same time to ensure belt ten-
sion is even between them, which reduces the
risk of premature wear on either belt.
