“Over the 5 years we’ve been working with Logan, our technical support calls for clutches have been cut by 75%” – Curtis Crocker, Technical Support Lead at Hog With vehicles operating in over 80 countries, Hog Technologies of Stuart, Florida has a variety of waterblasting products that are powered either via a PTO off the main vehicle engine or via a dedicated auxiliary engine. Hog switched from Twin DiscTM mechanical clutches to Logan Self-Adjusting Bell-Housing Power Take-off clutches for most of their auxiliary engine powered waterblasters. On the auxiliary engine driven products, Logan Bell-Housing PTO clutches provide connect-disconnect power from the engines to engage the waterblasting pumps. These waterblasters are used in a variety of applications, including pavement marking removal, roadway cleaning, airport runway rubber removal, and more. The Challenge: Hog Technologies has customers all over the world. In order to help their customers make the most of their equipment, Hog will perform 4 days of on-site training. With the mechanical clutches, this training included operation of the lever arm for clutch engagement, manual adjustment of the clutch plates, and other clutch maintenance requirements. “The issue with the mechanical clutches is that the torque needs to be checked on a regular basis and reset; a lot of customers aren’t doing that, and they’re burning their clutches out,” says Curtis Crocker
Perfection Pumping Corporation uses the Logan FlexaDrive and CAT C15 600 HP engine to power auxiliary pumps used on its custom made manure dragline equipment. Manure is stored in large lagoons so biological processes can transform the animal waste into a usable fertilizer. The manure pumping industry functions by assisting farmers with their pumping needs. The bulk of the business is in the spring and fall. For Marcel Wassink of Perfection Pumping Corporation in Alberta, Canada, the narrow pumping season means it is crucial to have consistent uptime, reliability, and low maintenance on his key pumping equipment. Logan FlexaDriveTM provides additional power sources for auxiliary equipment The Challenge: Prior to making the switch to the FlexaDrive, Wassink was using a live PTO off his CAT D7 tractor to power his hydraulic systems. The hydraulic PTO takeoff that he was using simply couldn’t stand up to the demands of his hydraulic system, leading to frequent downtime. When this setup gave out, Wassink began using the power take-off from his John Deere 8R 250 HP tractor. This configuration came with its own set of issues, specifically that the tractor was being used entirely as a stationary PTO for days at a time. “We were paying almost $75 in depreciation for every hour using that hydraulic pump,” says Wassink. The Solution: Wassink developed his own, stand-alone, skid mounted pumping station using a CAT C15 600 HP engine, a Logan
