Gearbox Ultimate Output Torque Test
The ultimate output torque test measures the amount of load applied to the gearbox before it breaks, simulating a stuck drive unit. Gearboxes sold by two other center pivot companies were tested against multiple Valley gearboxes. The left axis of the chart indicates the range of loads recorded at gearbox failure. Tests were performed in a head-to-head comparison, in a controlled environment, and in a standard manner to ensure an accurate comparison.
