Safety Partner – Ultimax Belts By Timken


As high tech as today’s snowmobiles are, a broken drive belt can bring your sled to a dead stop, often in the middle of a trail ride and at an inconvenient time or unsafe place.

Many factors can cause belt failure, starting with buying a cheap one or the wrong size belt for your sled. Other contributing factors include incorrect installation, not breaking in your new belt properly, not warming up a cold engine and belt before departing, or trying to take off when your track’s frozen in place. Damage can also happen to your belt when towing anything heavy like another sled, an ice hut or a loaded caboose. So for safety’s sake, carry a spare belt and the necessary tools to change one.
