Planetary Gearbox

Planetary gearboxes are noted for rugged and reliable service and can take the abuse belt, wheel, Mono Rail and chain driven systems cannot.

Planetary gears are used to drive some of the most popular brands of earth-moving equipment on the market today due to their performance and reliability under load. There is a lot of weight in any walker to get moving from a standstill and even more to stop it and go the other way. It is no wonder belts burn, chains stretch and wheel and Mono Rails slip.

Who has been out with a towel drying running gear on the walker in the morning damp or sitting around waiting for the dew to lift just so you can go to work……….. or find a belt or change the chain!

Plenty of us have had to help the walker start with a “bit of a push” as well……….not anymore!

Also, with the Planetary Gear, there is little to no maintenance. To ensure maximum performance with minimum maintenance, Priefert starts with this technology as the driving force of each of our walkers.
