"Grease Gun" Slip Clutch For Drive Shafts
The newly patented clutch from Finland is designed to prevent damage to mowers, brush shredders and other pto-driven equipment. The manufacturer says many pieces of equipment have shear pin protection but if the pin is broken you're out of business until you can replace it. With the new slip clutch, the equipment simply stops when it hits an obstacle with no damage done.
The unit is simply a modified automotive-type clutch. Clutch plates are adjusted by attaching a grease gun to a fitting on the unit. Pressure is set according to the type of machine.
