Do you want to maintain that expensive reducer/gearbox to prevent failure?
Highlighted below are 4 effective and simple steps to prevent you from spending a lot of time and money!

  1. Check the oil level. You’ll be amazed how much the consistency, color, and smell can tell you about the condition of your Falk gearbox.
  2. Bearings – YES THE BEARINGS – some engineers fail to simply replace the bearings on the Falk gearboxes and reducers which we recommend every 6 months. By doing so you’re keeping the torque stable with the RPM that Falk demands.
  3. Seals – Falk gearboxes and reducers like the bearings are recommended to be replaced every 6 to 8 months. It works to always have spares along with the bearings.
  4. Take it to a gearbox professional every 12 months for a full inspection. You can never take enough care of your Falk gearboxes and reducers.
