Drive Wheel Transmission, the drive motor has a variable speed driven pulley which is directly coupled to high efficiency planetary gear reducer as well as the drive wheel that is mounted via the rotating gear reducer and rotating output case. Both belt and pulleys are guarded from dust and fluids which extend the life with reduced maintenance. Drive systems and band wheels are in cast iron for a long productive life. Drive wheel is mounted via the outer rotating case via the planetary gear reducer. The direct coupling of the drive wheel to the outer rotating case of the reducer provides deflection free torque transfer and ensures that the wheel runs no matter the tension stresses or cutting loads. This efficiency of the planetary gear reducer provides additional power to the blade.
