Here at Phoenix, we get a lot of calls and emails from people wanting to make sure they have found the right Genuine OEM Replacement Pulley for their Scag mower, needing help measuring their pulley, or wanting to verify stock on our timing pulleys. We love these calls and we are happy to help!
We also get the occasional email or phone call requesting advise on which size pulley to use when starting a new project. A recent caller with just such a question turned out to be designing an industrial automatic coffee grinder. Our intrepid innovators usually begin with, “I’ve got a 5 horsepower motor with a ¾” shaft, and I want to know what size pulleys to buy to get 300 RPM.”
We have an extensive selection of pulleys that can work in many different types of projects and hope you will find one that works for you! Here are some of our favorite sites with online calculators that can help you quickly figure out what will work best for your applications:
- Block Layer has a handy visual aid. Select large and small pulleys along with your desired RPM. This site does not discuss motors.
- Culver Motor – Similar to Block Layer with links to additional information regarding belt tension, hub load, etc...
