ERBAUER Thicknesser ERB052BTE Belt Problem

    Hi Screwfix/Erbauer Customer Support Folks,

    Hope you can help please. I’m from the Cressing Temple Community Shed, a charitable organisation.

    The 5 ribbed belt on our ERB052BTE thicknesser broke. We ordered a new one from the Solent spares folks but it is about 1/4” too slack so doesn’t work and there is no belt tension adjustment I can see.

    It seems there may have been a design change in the model at some point as the motor belt wheel appears smaller than in some YouTube videos - our drive wheel and data plate below...



    As a charity we don’t have deep pockets and can’t simply splash out on a new machine so I’m hoping you can point me to where I can get the right belt for our beloved, and currently much missed, machine.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks KIAB, will re-check but I do know the replacement Solent belt sent was the 5 rib one not the 3 rib one which is OK.

    The video is helpful although our ERBAUER is much older and looks quite a bit different (below) BUT, the drive wheel in your video looks the same size so maybe...
