    Curious, Why dual belts on TS?

    My new to me old craftsman TS has dual belt pulleys, it's no big deal other than it has me wondering as to why & if newer saws are set-up that way..
    FWIW, it seems fine with one or both belts running...anyways, you know what killed the cat, right....

    Both of my 3hp cabinet saws have had three (3) belts. No doubt, it's to ensure transfer of power with no slippage. My original 1.5hp Craftsman had a single belt that would squeak occasionally on startup until I replaced it with a link belt.
