Predator® Single Belts

Specifically designed for aggressive applications, this extra heavy-duty belt construction provides extraordinary high impact strength, capacity, and wear resistance.

Predator belts are well suited as replacement belts for applications exposed to pulsating loads or heavy shock loads, such as mining, agriculture, wood processing, oil field equipment, heavy construction and sand/gravel operations.


  • Aramid Tensile Cords combine limited stretch with extraordinary strength and durability that is pound-for-pound stronger than steel.

  • Bareback Cover resists debris and allows the belt to slip under extreme shock load conditions, reducing heat buildup and prolonging belt life.

  • Gates Curves provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave-groove for equal loading, uniform wear, and increased belt life.

  • Meets RMA oil and heat resistant standards.

Predator belts do not meet RMA requirements for belt static conductivity.

When application requires Predator belt sets, request belts with same group/match number.
