... and his Challenge

Handling, braking and crushing stones, rocks, coal, minerals etc. is performed by large and expensive machinery which needs to be rugged but at the same time reliable. These installations are generally high-powered and therefore large. Being installed in remote areas, it is advantageous to keep weight and volume to the minimum. Escogear couplings with their high capacities help to meet these requirements.
