Providing an additional inventory reduction opportunity, shaft kits ranging from 1 to 1-1/2 in. were designed to plug into a standard hollow output shaft.

Four models are currently offered, with double reduction ratios from 7.8:1 to 60:1 and power capability to 8.50 hp. Triple reduction units are available by adding a ratio multiplier. The E Series is packed with premium features, including synthetic lubricant, covers sealed with o-rings, and Viton double-lip seals.

In addition to energy savings, the Grove Gear IronMan E Series presents potential for rapid return on investment through reduced operating cost and motor downsizing.
