Anyone using a belt system (i.e. replacement pulleys and belt) different from the original?? If you are using the original pulleys and belt, where are you getting your replacement belt when needed??

If it’s a regular V-belt I’d just go to Autozone and find one that is close to the same length. An inch or two either way shouldn’t make any difference. Just make sure it sits in the pulley like the other one does. It’ll be fine. If it will drive your water pump for 100,000 miles, a table saw ain’t nothin’.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.

Google Gates 300J6. It’s the belt that fits the pulleys and the correct size

psh’s recommendation is the correct one. The Ridgid saw takes a serpentine belt so neither a V-belt or a link belt will work on that saw. I take that back, they will work on that saw if you first change out the pulleys.

Have your say...
