    Any opinions on these Link Belts - Zot sells them, good for just temp fixes or full time replacements?

    Re: Link Belts

    About 2 years ago i tried those link belts,i tried it on the ball wheel since i had a bad belt,it goes on in seconds BUT it stretched quite a bit from the tension, then when any ball pressure was between b/w and liftrod the belt stopped moving.,not enough traction on the belt to keep it going.Also used it on a short turret belt,that was just super,ended any and all squeals from the belts,had no index troubles.
    They are a good idea but seem to stretch too much,you can easily install them and adding or removing the links is not bad at all.The slippage seems to come from belts being to slick,almost a plastic feel to them but they are not.I'd stick with the usual belts.All in all a good belt "idea" but not for a pinsetter to me.

      y6ou can get them from grainger for a little cheaper. i've thought about trying them for the motor to gbox and motor to elevator. since all mine seem to be different. still haven't decided. i probably wouldn't use it in an application with extreme tension such as the ball wheel, nighthawk just proved my suspicion. but hey, give it a try

        I had to use the split belt the other night for the ball wheel, pin got in rods and stopped the ballwheel and the belt got burned in half on the pulley while the guy was in the bathroom. Almost forgot I had a split belt its been so long, but the boss remember this link belt from long ago and told me to get one anyways, for the pinwheel if it ever needed. I did get it at granger - 5ft more for $20.00 less.

          I WOULD NOT USE THE LINK BELT ANYWHERE ON THE PINSETTER . WE USED THE LINK BELT IN THE BALL CLEANER ( BELT CAME WITH UPGRADE FOR BALL CLEANER) THE BELT BROKE LESS THAN A MONTHS TIME .
