Rj Link received a request from a customer that needed a gearbox solution to a unique agricultural spreader application. The customer wanted to switch over from belt and chain drives to a gear drive, and had many concerns with their existing application.
The customer needed a gearbox 8 inches wide, 6 inches deep and approximately 30 inches tall. Rj Link’s engineering team offered a design that would transmit power from the input to the output to cover the 30 inch gap, while meeting the customer’s defined package constraints.
