A tough, long-lasting belt for a tough, long-lasting job
We know your working conditions can be harsh, and you need a mower belt that can withstand a rough environment. That’s why our belts are built using aramid cords. Aramid is the same material used in bulletproof vests, so you can rest assured that these belts are built tough.
The interior of our belts is also comprised of a rubber compound infused with aligned fiber fabric. These aligned fibers allow the belt to properly flex and bend around pulleys, providing additional support to the cords and helping keep the belt on track. By inserting the aligned fibers in the rubber compound of the belt, it helps keep the compound from degrading and the cords operating at full strength, ultimately extending the belt life.
In addition to using sturdy materials, our belts are individually made, ensuring an exact number of complete cords in each belt. Complete cords equal more tensile strength, which means you’ll experience a stronger belt with less breakage and reduced stretching. And when a belt isn’t breaking or stretching, it doesn’t need to be replaced as often. With John Deere, you get a long-lasting belt, more time in the field, and more money saved on belt replacements.
We don’t stop with the interior, though. John Deere belts are double wrapped in high flex fabric to provide a softer PTO engagement, reducing wear and further extending the belt life.
