The Belt Drive Training System includes flanged bearings, fractional horsepower belts and sheaves, multiple Type-A belt sets, sheave bushings, as well as an adjustable motor base, positive drive belt, tool kit, belt sample set, shim selection, Industrial Trades Manual, and Use/Exercise Guide. The system also requires the #208-015 Magnetic Base/Dial Indicator Set.

Packaged with hardware for applications related to multiple matched belts, fractional horsepower belts, positive drive belts, and variable pitch sheaves, the system provides a variety of training scenarios in one benchtop piece of equipment. Optional drive hardware relating to other belt types and chain drives are available to expand the system's usefulness.
