Mechanical clutches require manual engagement via a lever arm that is usually in a position that is difficult to operate. Further, as the clutch plates wear, the pressure provided by the lever arm is no longer enough to engage properly, so operators must remove a cover plate and adjust the plates to ensure proper torque transfer during operation. In addition to the added labor of manual
