|Belt tension is an important factor pertaining to saw performance. A worn or slipping belt robs power from the saw and decreases productivity while cutting.
Burrs on pulleys will slowly wear through and break the belt, causing you to have downtime. After inspecting or replacing the belt, reassemble the cutting arm and ensure proper belt tension. Failing to apply tension will cause premature wear and allow the belt to burn, which may make repairs more costly.
As always, please refer to your owner’s manual for correct procedures and safety considerations when performing these repairs.
