The gearbox shafts have reinforced double lip seals to protect against contamination and prevent oil from escaping; premium ball and tapered roller bearings provide smooth operation and lower noise. Extended gear centers ensure tooth contact and provide consistent operation. Bore type is tapered and bushing kits to fit most shaft sizes are sold separately. Housings are 100% cast iron to provide industrial grade protection for the life of the unit.
