This kit provides an easy-to-install, much quieter alternative to the stock gearing that comes factory installed on the HX8410 Vertical Machining Center. Gone are the days of broken drive gears. Designed to run full-time, this kit is CNC-machined from the highest quality materials and is built-to-last. The belt drive kit increases the spindle speed significantly.
Without the LEI 3-Stage Belt Drive Upgrade Kit, the HX8410 VMC’s max stock speed, on “High” setting, is 2,500 RPM. The stock bearings on the HX8410 VMC are rated to 13,000 RPM.
3-Stage Max Speed (RPM)
Top – 3,000 RPM
Middle – 6,000 RPM
Bottom – 9,000 RPM
The Installation is bolt-on, and all together takes about 20 minutes to complete. The kit includes one V-belt.
