Idler Bushings


These idlers are the ideal solution for any fixed centre distance drives or multi-pulley drives requiring  free-spinning pulleys or sprockets. Gates idler bushings allow for standard V-belt pulleys or synchronous belt sprockets to be converted into a free-spinning idler.  Available in a few Taper-Lock® and QD bush sizes. 

CONSTRUCTION

Idler bushings contain sealed ball bearings and an integral shaft for  mounting to our adjustable idler brackets.  

ADVANTAGES

  • A perfect solution for customising belt drives.  
  • Turn standard V-belt pulleys or synchronous belt sprockets  into a free-spinning idler/ tensioner.
  • Designed for use with Gates idler brackets.
