The Falk V-Class gear drive is designed for maximum uptime and durable performance.

The Falk V-Class gear drive is designed for maximum uptime and durable performance. The gear drive offers reliable full-load inching for slowspeed operation of equipment for inspection and maintenance purposes. It can also run continuously to prevent freeze-up of components in harsh and cold weather when facilities are not in production.

The inching drive uses a Falk Ultramite gear drive mounted to the main gear drive unit coupled via an overrunning clutch. This lets the inching drive automatically disengage when the main motor is operating.
