My Factory Authorized Upfitter has been having quality control issues with Bando belts for our power transmission drive on our cleaning equipment.

Recently had a second set fail and they sent me these.

Optibelt VB, S=C Plus antistatic belts from Germany! Not much more money (mine were warranted) than Bando but allegedly better.

Any of our industrial guys know anything about this company? They sure look nice, but so do the Bandos that have been falling apart on us...

AFAIK, when my parents had a Mercedes, Optibelt and Conti were OEM equipment. Use with confidence.

Fine belts, but not for this application. These are used to drive PTO equipment off the engine.
