The kit features the company’s premium Elite brand of aftermarket products, including its Poly-V belt with Quiet Channel Technology, timing belt with OE Solutions Technology, and truck belt with Torque Team Technology.
The samples can be removed from the case making it easier to view the belt profile on one side and the lay-line – including the Elite brand and part number, metric number and date code – on the other side.
Included in the lightweight (15 lbs.) kit is a sell sheet outlining the features and benefits of each belt sample. The briefcase also is designed to serve as a distinctive counter display. It is available to WDs through business growth funds (co-op) and supports domestic, import, heavy-duty and industrial applications. For additional information go to www.continental-elite.com.
