The Gates Predator® V-Belt is as close to bullet proof as a V-belt drive can ever be, even in the hardest working environments.
Designed for the toughest, dirtiest and most aggressive applications and environments, Gates Predator®construction is what sets it apart from any other V-belt. Available in both PowerBand belts and singles - Predator®belts have the highest power density of any V-belt, and stretch dramatically less than standard construction belts. That's why they're ideal for use on problem drives requiring high-impact strength and load-carrying power, including: crushers, de-barkers, hogs, grinders, wood hogs, pallet grinders, shredders, tub grinders and car shredders.
The Predator®difference is the construction: having the highest power density of any V-belt and half the stretch of standard Gates belts because of the use of high strength, high modulus aramid tensile cords.
Predator®V-belts can handle 1.4 - 2.2 times more horsepower than the equivalent size standard V-belt. So you can design a more compact drive that weighs less, puts less strain on costlier components, and uses fewer belts. All of which saves you money.
Reduce drive cost up to 35%
Reduce drive width up to 67%
Reduce drive weight up to 50%
Reduce drive maintenance
Reduce overhung loads
Maintain same shaft load
Gates Predator®belt drives have proved themselves in the toughest applications in agriculture, forestry, mining, construction and manufacturing.
Case Studies: PredatorSingles
A company for the timber industry
Four people were required to work six hours every three months in order to maintain a chipper drive running eight SPB 4750 belts. Downtime was costing the company about $7,000 each year with another $2,000 in belt costs annually. By switching to Predator®singles, the company was able to eliminate three belts. Not only are the belts expected to last longer than three months, but it is also anticipated that replacements will not be needed until the 12-month life mark.
A company for the Timber Industry - Harvey Band Saw Drive
Significant improvement has been made on a band saw drive using Predator®singles. Even though the pulleys weren't replaced, the new Predator®Singles exceeded the prior four-month life expectancy with no noticeable signs of wear. For every set of belts that they do not need to replace, the company saves $2,000.
The Gates Predator®V-belts help solve your most common shock-load belt drive problems and save you money at the same time.
