Agricultural belts work in the heaviest conditions possible. Combine harvesters and tractors work outdoors, often in constant sunlight and therefore hot conditions. The use of relatively small tensioners is common, which implies a significant additional load on the belt in terms of deformation and temperature increase.
In addition, the belts are subjected to dust, dirt, stones and other objects that may enter between the belt and the pulley. For all these reasons, you should only use belts specifically designed for use on agricultural applications, as these are built to specifications capable of withstanding such harsh conditions.
