West River is a leader in custom-built, custom-designed belt drives.

Drives are constructed from carefully selected, industry-leading materials to provide a strong and rigid, mine-duty frame that doesn’t distort during installation or use. West River’s heavy-duty frames are built from a heavier steel than many competitors use, providing a drive that withstands the most demanding underground and above-ground bulk material handling operations. Belt drives from West River come in a variety of sizes, belt widths, and horsepower required. West River’s ability to work with the customer to create a drive system suitable to their needs is the number one priority. Utilizing the most advanced design program available allows West River engineers the flexibility to create drives for unique applications.
