What is the best belt puller? Wheelhorse or Sears? Why?
:fing32:The only engine I have pulled against that had more balls than my Onan was a THD Wisconsin, but thats a 60ci inline 2 cast iron, and my 16hp is a 40ci opposed aluminum.
The most I have pulled so far is 2400# dead weight on clay, no complaints from my tranny at all.I guy over on the yahoo group pulled with a sears but he put a wheel horse trans in it and a 16 hp kohler.
The sears trans kept blowing out the bottom. He had ton of weight or so I think he said.
so your saying that 1 belt is better than 2? your logic is messed up...More belts = more power lost. The simpler you can keep it, the better. Sears and WH use one belt, direct from the engine to the trans, nothing in the middle to sap power. For transfer sled, look for something with a big twin cylinder.
