Panther®XT Belt

8M, 14M

A powerful alternative to chain or a drop-in replacement for high torque polyurethane belts, Panther XT belts are engineered to run quietly and efficiently in the harshest environments. Carbon cord construction and abrasion-resistant, low friction tooth fabric provide strength and durability, and help reduce downtime, maintenance, and noise levels. Constructed with a high temperature and oil resistant polymer, Panther XT belts provide high thermal stability and excellent overall chemical resistance. Carbon fiber cord resists stretch and maintains outstanding belt tension stability over the life of the belt.
