Vertical Gearbox

A vertical gearbox, also known as a vertical gear drive or vertical speed reducer, is a type of gearbox specifically designed to transmit power between vertically oriented input and output shafts. These gearboxes are utilized in applications where the input and output shafts are positioned vertically, such as rotary slashers, finishing mowers, and roller mills. Upgrade your machinery with our vertical gearboxes for dependable performance and maximum productivity.

For optimal product utilization, we advise carefully reviewing the specifications outlined in our technical sheet. Additionally, take into account factors such as input rotation speed, power input, and transmission ratios.


The reducer is typically supplied without lubricant. The recommended quantity of lubricant differs according to model. The first replacement must be done after 50-60 hours of running, then replaced after 600-800 working hours. You must empty the gearbox immediately after use, while the oil is still hot, to avoid the deposition of sludge. Clean the oil plugs. Check the oil level frequently and top off the oil whenever necessary.
