Direct Drives

Power Wheel® Direct Drives are sometimes referred to as 1-to-1 drives, bearing housings, or even overhung loader adaptors. These drives are directly powered by a hydraulic motor, thus the output speed of the drive (rpm) is equal to the output speed of the hydraulic motor shaft(rpm). These drives are very popular in brush cutting or tree saw applications.
