We have rebuilt many clutches for cranes and other Off-Road
vehicles/machinery. Original manufacturers include Lima, P&H,
Grove, etc. Clutches range from 14'' double disc clutch up
to 17'' over-center clutch. Our service with these types of
clutches is immediate and turnaround is a priority, because
when equipment is down our customer is losing money.
While many forklifts today have automatic transmissions, older
lift trucks have manual transmissions. There are two designs
for the most part "wet " clutch and "dry"
clutch. A wet clutch means that the bellhousing is designed
to hold oil which the clutch system is submersed in,
also known as an oil spray clutch. A dry clutch is the conventional
clutch system that is most common to all manual transmissions.
We rebuild both designs. And with our vast knowledge and experience
can convert a wet design to a dry design and vice-versa.
Power take-off units also known as PTO'S are found in a lot
of industrial clutches and machinery . A popular application
are tree chippers. There are two main manufacturers Rockford
and Twin Disc. And variety of sizes 10'' up to 18''
with single, double and triple plates. We are able to save
our customers a considerable amount of money by rebuilding
the old unit. In some cases the old unit is not rebuildable
therefore replacing with a new unit. We try to stress to our
customers about preventative maintenance with these clutches.
The most common reason for failure is simply not greasing
