8/8VP1700Product # 91828170
Gates' Predator® PowerBand® belt design offers a solution for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over or jump off the pulleys. It consists of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high-strength tie band allowing the belts to work together as one unit. The Predator® PowerBand® belt is especially designed for demanding applications and harsh environments and offers a high resistance to vibration. Specifically designed for high-demand applications, the extra heavy-duty belt construction provides extraordinary high impact strength, capacity, and wear resistance.
- 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.
- Multiple layer Tie Band provides excellent lateral rigidity to prevent belts from turning over or from coming off of the drive.

Size Range/Availability Belt Slitters located onsite at several Gates Service Centers can cut down an existing belt in inventory to the strand width needed. Large Inventory of standard lengths and widths are readily available. See sizing table for details. Made-To-Order Belt Lengths are available in any size from: CP (80 to 400 inch), 3VP (45 to 220 inch), 5VP (50 to 660 inch) and 8VP (100 to 660 inch). Check with Customer Service for minimum order quantity and manufacturing lead time. Markets/Applications 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.
Belt Notes Belt part number is constructed by placing the (#) number of strands required followed by a slash (/) in front of the belt size. For example, 5/3VP800 represents a 3VP800 with 5 joined strands. Belt product number is 8 or 9 digits constructed of product series prefix, number of strands, and belt length. For example, 91805080 represents a "3VP" section PowerBand® (9180) with 5 strands (5) that is 80.0 inches (080) long. Predator® belts do not meet RMA requirements for belt static conductivity. When application requires Predator® PowerBand® belt sets, request same group/match number. Recommended For Super HC® Sheaves as recommended by DesignFlex® Pro™ drive analysis. WARNING: Do NOT use with backside idlers.
