DOE the small belt Why do belt makers always rest their advertising argument upon the costly 75 foot - 24 to 80 inch double or three-ply belt? Why not consider occasionally the millions of feet of 4, 6 and 8 inch single belt that so faithfully serves owner, superintendent and machine op erator in practically every industrial plant in America? The transmission of power from the lineshaft to the machine constitutes the greatest source of profit or loss in almost any plant. Various solutions have been sought. Some have proved spectacular but costly and unreliable. The dependable method from the standpoint of economy and reliability remains as always --- belt driven from line or countershaft to the individual machine. When Dodge equipment is specified, experiment and delay of production are elim inated. Pulleys, hangers, bearings, clutches,, couplings "Built by Dodge" have a distinct relation to each other and to the work they are to perform. Your small belts serve you well. Be fair to them. Expect the best results from them only when they are used with equipment designed to act as a unit in effec tive, economical power transmission. Such equipment can be found only in the Dodge line, since only the Dodge line contains everything for the mechanical trans mission of power. There's a Dodge dealer in your locality. He is competent to advise you in the mat ter of group driving. Place your order through him if possible; we prefer it. Dodge Sales & Engineering Company Distributor of the products of the Dodge Mfg.
