A very common question out there is, "Why am I replacing belts every year?"
First you should not be having to replace belts every year or more in one year. Below are some tips on things to look for before replacing that third belt this season.
Jacks recieves many calls each day for replacement belts issues, when a customer tells us this belt is the second one this season being replaced this sends up flags.
The biggest culpert here is bad pulleys. Check the belt for uneven wear or excessive wear. A pulley rides on bearings that allows it to spin freely. When that pulley does not spin freely friction starts between the pulley and the belt. You guessed it, another broken belt. Remember belts do wear out but if you are replacing the same belt more than you should than fix the problem not the symptom.
