Coxreels has released their new gear reducing idler sprockets for the 1195 Series electric motorized hose reels. This add-on will benefit the user in increasing motor torquem, reducing the rewind speed, and fitting an optional 3-way pin lock. Coxreels idler sprockets are mounted on zinc plated steel axle and rotate on two self-lubricated bronze bearings.
The high-quality, idler sprockets are chain sprocket assemblies with a corrosion protective coating that change the drive ratio of the motor-to-drum drive system. They are available in three ratios (1:2, 1:3, and 1:4) and each will effectively slow down the rewind speed of the drum and will increase the effective motor torque, providing the necessary safety and control during rewind of large, 2” diameter hose.
The electric rewind versions of the 1195 will now come standard with 1:3 gear reduction and the model number has changed accordingly. Non-reduced models will be available if requested for use with electronic speed reducers.
