Portable Power Unit
"It gives us a portable drive unit we can haul around the farm," says Bill McLennan, Cambridge, pleased with the power unit he drives with his motorcycle, pickup or car.
The drive wheel of his motorcycle rides on two cylinders, each of which is fitted with pulleys at either end. Depending on what machine he needs to power, he'll run V-belts off either end.
"I've used it to run air compressors, water pumps, generators, sheep shearing machinery, a concrete mixer, and many other machines," McLennan told FARM SHOW. Power output depends on the strength of the powering wheel.
