- Pulley size (for correct drive speed)
- Number and type of grooves (for effective power transmission)
- Type of bearing (for long or short idle periods)
- Fixing arrangement to the shaft (i.e. Grub screw or washer)
- Shaft size and keyway (determined by drive motor)
We supply Lehane Centrifugal clutches Extreme Range, for heavy-duty applications, and Aussie Range, with fully replaceable parts and featuring replaceable shoes with friction material and fully machined components for long reliable life.
