Reminds me of the idiots I grew up with that put belts on and off the power take offs on the old tractors.
Most ended up loosing a hand or better.

Kind of like how I change the blade on my table saw, just slip the wrench on the nut with the motor running and the blade comes right off in to time!

Wonder if a new belt would go on as easy as the old stretched one?

I’d be inclined to use two screwdirivers with a new belt for safety!

This reminded me of the time when I had my finger go around between the chain and sprocket on an old riding mower. I’ve learned my lesson so I wouldn’t even attempt this.

The guy who posted video said it was taught to him by some old friend in North Carolina. The story goes, that the old man bet him he could change the fan belt in 5 seconds. Boy took the bait and lost. Been trying to learn the trick ever since. Still has 10 fingers so I guess he’s doing well.
