Clutch Sheave

Is there any difference from one manufacturer to another? If so which is best.

there pretty much all the same except for maybe hunterworks, they don't machine as much material as the others who are machined by the same people.

i have heard that hunterworks doesnt machine as much material as other places do is that benifical ? By not machining as much material does that hurt the overall performance of the sheave ?

Todd at Hunterworks thinks that it is better... Less prone to damage. I do not agree... In my 3 years on several different forums... I have never heard of it as being an issue...

Yes it will affect perfromance. I have tested just about every sheave out there and the Hunterworks was next to last on top speed. I think it was about 3 or 4 mph less than the others. The only one that was behind it was the Grizzly Sheave.

A machined sheave is for top end only, Nothing in the bottom will change.
Machining it allows the rollers to come out farther letting the belt drop further for more top speed. The reason hunterworks machines less material is a few people removed to much material and the walls would crack and there sheaves were destroyed, They don't use alot of top end for mudding.
Most shops have it down now and like I said, most have them done by the same people.
