single stage pulley size

Recommended Posts

-I have been told you can go from the 7" pulley to a 5" or 6" on the single stage blower, and no belt mod. How much does this help for distance? -For guys that have done this is it worth doing? -anyone know the inner shaft size for these pulleys and where to get one? Thanks!

I'm running the 5" pulley on my 42" blower. I've run this set up on my 917H Allis, and my 918H Agco. It works great, easily blowing the snow 30 - 40 feet:D You'll need a shorter belt than the ones for the 6" or 7" pulley.

A 144" belt will do the trick with a 5" pulley. The difference in the two pulley diameters calculates out to a 3" shorter belt. An A-142 (1/2 X 144") belt from NAPA should do it.

Not to say your wrong sir but that's what I think I purchased 3 years ago when I changed mine over from the B112 and I have to have the adjusting pulley all the way to the rear to just get the indicator in the green (circumference difference divided by 2)it sure does bounce around so I'm guessing the full 6" difference may be correct?

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
