    Default 8-71 Blower Belt Questions

    I wanted to ask if Kevlar Blower belts are prone to making more noise than a rubber belt? And do they make less of a mess? Stronger? Thanks for the input.

    I have only been running the same kevlar belt since 1993. 8mm
    It still has some "dust" or whatever. Not tons. My belt is not what I consider noisy. Over tighten it and you can make some noise. Its also hard on main bearing and blower bearing.

    Hmm... is the "dust" from the belt or the pulleys?
