Walterscheid couplings

The guardians of agricultural machinery

The clutches installed on your drive shaft will protect your agricultural machinery against overloading and, thus, prevent your machinery from failing or needing repairs. Overloading most commonly occurs when work begins and before the machine reaches its optimum speed of operation. However, your machine may also overload if you drive too fast, if you process to much harvested crop at once or if your unit is blocked by foreign objects. Employing Walterscheid products gives you the assurance that you have the perfect drive shaft and clutch for all your applications and requirements.

The most important types of couplings for every requirement at a glance

Shut-off clutches

Typical applications include: Forage wagon, stable manure spreader, round baler, rotary harrow, gathering units on field choppers, snow blowers, etc.

Friction clutches or combined friction overrunning clutches

These types of clutches are primarily used in high pressure balers, blowers, rotary tillers or rotary mowers.

Star ratchet clutches

These clutches are particularly well suited for the lower output range of stable manure spreaders and forage wagons, for rotary rakes, rotary tedders, rotary windrowers, sugar beet or potato harvesters, and cutting tools.
