Industry: Lawn and Garden
Application: Stump Grinder
Problem: Maintaining correct belt tension in any application can be difficult. Add in a harsh environment, and it can be nearly impossible.
Solution: The impossible becomes possible with the combination of Fenner Drives’ T-Max automatic spring-loaded tensioner and Fenner Drives’ PowerMax Idler Pulley. The advantage of this arrangement is controlled belt tension over a longer period of time due to the flat idler pulley that is held against the underside of a two-rib banded belt with a constant force generated by the spring in the T-Max tensioner. This constant correct tension eliminates the need for manual adjustment reducing maintenance time and the costs associated with maintenance. In addition to the constant tension advantage, both the T-Max automatic spring-loaded tensioner and the PowerMax Idler Pulley perform superbly in the dirty conditions encountered by this equipment.
