Drum-Motor Lagging extends belt life.
Electrical Equipment & Systems

Drum-Motor Lagging extends belt life.

Drum-motor lagging options and motor-face patterns improve belt traction and tracking in concrete and aggregate operations. Laggings are available in smooth or patterned rubber and urethane or metal. Metal-tread laggings eliminate oil build up in asphalt recycling. Laggings complement standard parabolic, machine-crowned shell that tracks on all points of contact. They ensure even belt wear and...
