Abilene Machine stocks a wide variety of replacement parts for agricultural equipment – including the parts that fit your Hesston® swathers, and keep them in peak condition for harvest. One of the most important parts of your tractors and combines are the drive belts. Powering the hydraulic systems, cooling systems, cleaning systems, and threshing systems, belts are a key component that you will want to replace at regular intervals to avoid down time, and you want to replace them with belts that meet or exceed the quality of the original equipment manufacturers.
Our Q Power® line of replacement agricultural belts are exactly what you’re looking for. Let’s take a look at the features and benefits that make Q Power® belts the number one agricultural aftermarket replacement belt in the market.
Q Power® belts are manufactured “referencing the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) specification S211.6 specifically designed for agricultural applications providing optimum fit on combine drives.” What’s that mean for you as the end user? It means Q Power® belts are going to fit correctly and perform under the harsh conditions, heavy loads, and long hours that go hand-in-hand with harvest time. The last thing anyone can afford during harvest is down time because of a broken belt, Q Power® belts are designed to keep you and your equipment on the job.
So how are these belts manufactured that makes them so strong and durable? It starts with a highly engineered rubber compound that was developed specifically for the stressors of agricultural applications. Holding it all together are woven cords of Kevlar®, or high-strength aramid fibers, that provide higher transverse rigidity and resistance to the high-heat conditions you find in the field. These fibers, which are five times stronger than steel by weight, provide superior shock load resistance and prevent the belts from collapsing under heavy loads.
In order to make a belt that will stand up to the demands of harvest, Q Power® controls the three Ts of cohesive adhesion when they manufacture their belts: time, temperature, and tension. These three parameters are controlled in order to make a belt that works as hard and as long as you do. That means no matter what the crop, from beans to corn, no matter what the conditions, whether muddy or dry, Q Power® keeps you running.
Manufactured and engineered with superior materials, optimal manufacturing processes, and adhering to ASABE specifications, Abilene Machine is committed to providing Q Power® belts, the very best in replacement belts for your agricultural equipment. You can be rest assured that you’re getting a high-quality, competitively priced, on-hand, warrantied replacement belt for your combine and or any other piece of agricultural equipment. And when it comes to harvest time, you can count on Abilene Machine to keep your equipment in the field. Quality Always Comes Through!
