Each chain flight can be equipped with replaceable nylon wear pads. The nylon pads help the chain to run incredibly smooth and quiet while also reducing the horsepower required to drive the system. A steel-on-steel guide system is also available.
The ASM Series 513 high pressure chain lube system meters out the precise amount of lubricating oil needed to ensure maximum chain life without wasting oil. Approximately one gallon of lube oil per hour is applied at critical points on the Log Transport system. The lube system is activated* on timed intervals, which are synchronized to the chain running speed and operating time. The lube system applies oil only when chain is actually moving, thus conserving lube oil and eliminating unnecessary clean up.
* Lube oil pump- is activated by the customers PLC system.

Fairfield Torque-Hub® Gear Reducer mounted inside the kicker body, out of harm's way.
Low cost, readily available hydraulic motor mates directly into the torque hub. Belt drives, roller chains, and couplings are completely eliminated.
Floating Torque arm/mounting flange isolates the drive system completely. All end loads are supported by an oversized tapered roller bearing.
