    I have a bunton with belt on blade from bottom of engine. Problem is the belt will not stay on. Every time I start to use machine, the belt comes off. If someone can help, I sure would appreciate it. Belt is appro. 28" folded semi V

    The belt may be stretched so you may need a new one. I'm not familiar with bunton machines so I don't know if there is a way to tighten it up or not. If you have an owners manual for the machine you look in there and see if it tells you how to tighten it up. Hope that helps.

    Also check and make sure something hasnt got against the pulley and damaged it also, a bent pulley with cause a belt to jump off also
