• Gearbox Design for Unique Agricultural Application

    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.


    Customer Concerns:

    • Alignment issues
    • Lubrication issues
    • Durability issues
    • Space Constraints
    • Noise issues
    • Need for more rugged gearbox
