Original Press Release:

The Slide-Rite(TM) Gearbox; Higher Speeds, Leakproof Performance, Low Backlash

The NEW Slide-Rite Gearbox turns power around any corner, operates in any direction, slides axially along the drive or driven shaft and installs with ease. This new design uses a solid one-piece aluminum housing which seals the gears from outside contaminants and ensures leakproof performance. At low speed operation it offers a substantially higher torque output yet is capable of running at more than twice the speed of older designs. Its low-backlash design and factory-lubricated and sealed bearings provide reliable, durable performance in either fixed or "free-floating" power transmission applications.
