How can I drive a compressor and a hp pump with one 13 hp engine. One at a time. The easyiest switch gear/ pulleys Thank You


The engine drives a shaft and pulleys drive belts to each machine then engage the pulleys or loosen and tighten the belts for drive.

  • $\begingroup$ Will abrasion of a pulley on a slack belt cause any long-term damage? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @DKNguyen seen flat belts that have been running for years… also had to learn how to replace them - there are different types of joint. $\endgroup$
