To minimize the noise level of your V-belt drive, pay close attention to tension and alignment.

Improper V-belt tension can cause the belt to slip and squeal. Misalignment creates interference at the belt’s entry point into the sheave, resulting in a louder drive.

Information on proper belt installation tension and alignment is detailed in the V-belt manual:
