TNT-2 Gearbox

Designed for applications where the irrigation system may need to be towed

 

This gearbox is the perfect solution for a towable irrigation system. Growers typically prefer this gearbox over a gearbox with a towable hub. Simply disengage the worm and tow your system to its working location, then re-engage the worm and you are ready to run. The CX coupler is the perfect compliment for the TNT-2 gearbox due to the ability to control coupler disengagement at the gearbox.

 

The UMC patented TNT-2 final drive gearbox is designed specifically for applications where a center CZPT or lateral move/ linear irrigation system needs to be towed. The gearbox provides the ability to disengage the worm gear and allows users to move systems from 1 area to another without requiring a Towable Hub add on.

760-UV Bronze Gearbox

Designed for the most extreme conditions where an extended output shaft is required.

 

Growers typically use The UMC 760-UV bronze gearbox for the most extreme applications where an extended output shaft is required. The gearbox is designed for higher annual hours of operation while handling the heavy loads experienced on corner systems and lateral move carts as well as the most extreme field conditions where wheel rutting is prominent, soil is heavy, and tower weights are higher.

 

The UMC 760-UV Bronze final drive gearbox is our largest and most durable gearbox with an extended output shaft designed for the most extreme growing conditions. It features a high strength aluminum bronze bull gear and a heat treated steel worm gear giving it a much higher load capacity than the standard 760-UV. Additionally, this gear combination greatly reduces gear wear, extending the useful life of the gearbox. It also features a 2.5″ output shaft to accommodate more overhung load. It is designed for use on center pivots, corners, lateral move/ linear irrigation systems and carts where a 52:1 gear ratio and extended output shaft are standard specifications.

Features and Benefits

  • 2.5″ output shaft
  • 52:1 gear ratio with a 25° pressure angle
  • Unique dual input and output seal design
  • Bronze Gear
  • Heat Treated Steel Worm Gear
  • Larger input bearings
  • Input shaft guard
  • External seal protectors for input and output seals
  • 11-Bolt mounting pattern
  • Full cycle expansion chamber with aluminum cover

Role of Agricultural Gearboxes in Agricultural Machinery

An agricultural gearbox is a specialized type of gearbox used in various agricultural machinery and equipment. It plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of agricultural equipment by transmitting power and torque from the engine to the different components that perform specific tasks in the field.

Agricultural gearboxes are designed to withstand the demanding conditions of agricultural operations, including exposure to dust, dirt, moisture, and heavy loads. They are commonly used in a wide range of agricultural machinery, including tractors, combines, tillers, sprayers, and more.

The primary functions of agricultural gearboxes include:

  • Power Transmission: Agricultural gearboxes transmit power from the engine to various components, such as wheels, blades, and belts, enabling them to perform their respective tasks.
  • Speed Control: Gearboxes allow operators to control the speed and output torque of agricultural machinery. Different tasks require different speeds and levels of torque, and gearboxes provide the necessary adjustments.
  • Direction Change: Many agricultural operations require changing the direction of rotational motion. Gearboxes enable smooth and efficient direction changes without the need for complex mechanical arrangements.
  • Adaptation to Tasks: Agricultural gearboxes are equipped with various gears and shafts that can be configured to match the requirements of specific tasks, such as plowing, planting, harvesting, and more.

These gearboxes come in different configurations, such as straight-cut gears, helical gears, and planetary gears, depending on the specific application and requirements. The choice of gearbox type, gear ratio, and design factors contribute to the overall performance, efficiency, and durability of agricultural machinery.

Regular maintenance and lubrication are essential to ensure the longevity and reliable operation of agricultural gearboxes. Proper care and upkeep help prevent premature wear and damage, ensuring that the machinery performs optimally throughout the farming seasons.
