  • K-60 Motor Pulley

    Has anyone else had any problems with the motor pulley where it connects to the motor shaft. Ours came loose recentley and is now in the shop getting repaired.
    I was just wondering why the shaft has a flat side on it and the motor pulley is just round with a set screw it.
    Wouldnt it have been a better design to have a flat spot on the motor pulley also to hold it into place better when the set screw is tightened ?
    I just hate to see this as a reoccuring problem.

      if the set screw is tightened properly, there should be no reason why the pulley would slip on the motor shaft.

      is it damaged to the point that you couldn't just square it up and tighten the set screw?

            Sorry not to respond sooner but when it happened it may have caused possible damage to the shaft and the housing . Sent it to the Ridgid repair shop just to be on the safe side as the machine is under warrantee.
            I was just more wondering why not make the pulley with a flat spot on it that would compliment the shaft and then have the set screw just to keep it from moving off the shaft.
            I am not trying to put down the machine at all. I am a sectional guy that has not had a single problem with my K-1500 in over 15 years of use . I am mearly trying to see if it is possible to better the design to prevent it from happening in the future.
