What is the difference between the different color Straight Shooter Belts
Published: April 22, 2019
Most of the Straight Shooter feeder belts are available in 3 different colors each having different grip
The White belts are the standard grip belts found on most Straight Shooter Feeders. The White Feed Belt on most of the feeders is part # 11-149WF, The smaller traction belt is part # 916-9WT. Most of the Straight shooter feeders like the R-14 and C-12 have 4 feed belts and three traction belts. This white belt kit can be found under part number SS-C12-Kit-White. For wider feeders like the C-20 with 5 feed and 4 traction belts, use part number C-20 FEEDER KIT White
The Brown / Tan belts are known as the High Friction belts and offer the most traction/ grip and are normally only sold when a client is having feed problems. The Feed Belt is 11-145UHF. The smaller traction belt is 961-7UHF.
The #1 problem we run into with all the belts is cracking! And that should not happen! Too often people clean the belts with cleaners that destroy the oils in the rubber and dries the rubber out. Most commonly, Alcohol, press wash or RenaCare. If you use a cleaner that is designed to protect and replace the oils in the rubber your belts will last a lot longer! A great example of this is our S203 Rubber Roller Cleaner & Rejuvenator
