The belt-driven machine shop saw one major upgrade (in the 1950s) when modern lathes replaced half of the belt-driven units.
Visitors gawk at the 106-foot line shaft that provides power to belt-driven machines built more than a century ago.
A direct drive system reduces the unit's footprint to about half of that required by a belt-driven machine
, allowing installations in restricted areas.
As I wrote in the threshing chapter of my book, Implements for Farming with Horses and Mules, "A little caution and good judgment, along with a lot of practice, are required to quickly and properly line up and set a tractor and belt-driven machine
." And that's all I know about flat belts and their use.
One could not belt to a thresher or any other belt-driven machine
at the front of the tractor.
The machine shop display features belt-driven machines
that have been restored.
As rotor speeds increase, energy consumption goes through the roof on belt-driven machines
. Mills that increase their productivity by increasing the speed on centrally driven rotor spinning machines are risking the economic efficiency of their production, and only the Autocoro 8 liberated spinning mills from this destructive predicament.
Featuring a rack and pinion drive for elevator and extractor movement, the Logimat vertical lift module provides better tray stability with less servicing than chain- or belt-driven machines
. The high-density system presents trays of items and small parts to be picked in a goods-to-person system.
Extra equipment included wheel weights and a V-belt pulley or a 4-inch flat pulley for driving belt-driven machines
. The R-T could be equipped with either a 3-unit, 56-inch, or a 5-unit, 92-inch reel mower for large lawn mowing jobs.
They don't need to wait for a central unit as on belt-driven machines
. The Autocoro thus comprises 552 intelligent production units which are productive round the clock without exception even when piecing is required especially frequently at some spinning positions.
But this high productivity doesn't take up any more space, because the Autocoro 8 with its single-drive technology is still 13% more compact than belt-driven machines
of comparable length from other manufacturers.
described its truck as a "gasoline farm wagon" and "general farm power machine." The firm decided up front that its trucks would be most useful to farmers during the harvest season, so they included a large belt pulley that could be attached to the front crank shaft for powering grain separators and other belt-driven machines
. Early Avery trucks also had cast steel wheels with holes into which wooden plugs could be driven, to give added traction; when the wood wore down, new wooden plugs simply were inserted.
