Continental Torque Team Laminated V-belts can  withstand the punishment that results from jams in log and lumber processing applications. 

Standard V-belts resist slipping when a jam occurs, causing excessive heat buildup that can lead to belt failure and costly downtime. But that wont happen with Torque Team. 

The special sidewall of Torque Team Laminated V-belts acts as a control switch, allowing the belts to slip as needed until the obstruction is cleared. As a result, the superior wear-resistant capabilities of Torque Team Laminated V-belts are maintained, increasing belt life up to four times longer than standard V-belts.
