COXREELS idler sprockets for the 1195 Series
COXREELS’ gear-reducing idler sprockets for the 1195 Series electric motorized hose reels reduces the rewind speed, increases motor torque and fits an optional three-way pin lock. The all-steel chain sprocket assemblies have a corrosion-protective coating that changes the drive ratio of the motor-to-drum drive system. The sprockets are available in three ratios: 1:2, 1:3 and 1:4. Each ratio will slow down the rewind speed of the drum by a multiple of the ratio factor, and they will increase the effective motor torque by the same factor, providing the necessary safety and control during rewind of large, 2-inch-diameter hose. The sprockets are mounted on zinc-plated steel axles and rotate on two self-lubricated bronze bearings. 800-269-7335;
