Logan self-adjusting, hydraulically actuated Bell Housing Power Take-Off (PTO) clutches have been standard equipment on OEM marine and mobile equipment for over 18 years. Thousands of Logan units are in the field, operating on airport snow blowers, highway and airport marking and runway rubber removal equipment, and more recently trailor mounted waterblasting equipment.
Logan vs. Mechanical PTOs
The advantage of the Logan Clutch is its ability to engage and disengage the water jetter hydraulically, through
push-button activation, eliminating the use of a mechanical hand lever or yoke type clutch engagement system, which dates back to the early 40s. Smooth, Logan softstart engagement eliminates clutch downtime due to over and under adjustment. And since the Logan clutch is self-adjusting, clutch engagement is smooth and
consistent after hundreds of hours of use.
The mechanical clutch requires the operator to hand engage a clutch, which opens up the opportunity for untrained operators
Trailer or skid mounted blasting systems can range in size from 50 to 500 HP, with required speeds up to 3,000 RPM on smaller units. With SAE size bells from No. 7 up to No. 0, and torque ranges from 159 lb. ft. (216 Nm) to over 7,838 lb. ft. (10,628 Nm) Logan Bell Housing PTOs are properly sized to handle even the toughest demands in system torque and HP.
