stupid is as stupid does.
Moving the massive snow piles with the "66 4500 TLB on Saturday and it starts tat tat tat. "What"s that, that don"t sound good." Shut it down, take a look. Ancient fan belt I should of, could of changed a shredded mess. Great, Snow is piled 4-5 feet deep in front of bay door to garage that fits the tractor. Been rained on and frozen too. Parked it, covered with tarp. The permafrost ice sheet under the tractor looks so lovely to work on. Snap, I do not even know the exact belt it is as the 4500 has a alternator conversion gerry rigged on it.
Order 5 ft of v-link belt in the hop ei can run it long enough to move the snow from in front of the bay I need to use.

The individual links are flat, but when you link them together the tabs that go through to the inside are shaped with a "v" profile so they go down into the "v" of the pulley and work like a v-belt.

That is pretty much the same question that I have been pondering... I have a Jubilee with FEL and V-link belt that looks pretty worn.

Question is- Do V-link belts hold up the same a regular V belts? It looks like mine seems to stretch over time.

What is anyone else's opinions?

I've run a few of them, with good results. Especially handy when putting a regular belt in means a lot of disassembly just to get at it. Any belt will stretch some with age and use.

It worked!
Ran it for 5 minutes. Shut it down and snugged belt a wee bit tighter. Then ran it hard moving frozen snow mountains. Looks snazzy too!

Greg, Amazon. Costs about 3 times what a standard belt costs. But it was worth it. I used some old telephone wire to sank it around under the crank pulley. Never even had to get on ground. I tried to post a video link but could not get it to work. Pete

Pete- Is that a V-belt or flat 1/2 inch belt? Seems all I can find on Amazon is flat belts...or does it matter? thanks.

Fenner Drives PowerTwist Plus V-Belt - 4L 1/2" x 5' - 0428030

Greg, v-link belt. Acts just like a V-belt. The link is for the 5ft 1/2", I used all of it except v-links, about 4-5"s
