What is a Power Unit?
An industrial power unit usually refers to a self-contained, free standing engine assembly that will be used to drive one piece of equipment, such as a rock crusher, conveyor, or Funk power takeoff. The power unit we build are usually radiator cooled and have the air intake and exhaust systems attached to the engine. The control panel, throttle, if required, and mounting feet or base are usually included too.
We design and build power units for many different customers. The power units can be provided to make final installation into your machine as easy as possible. We can provide couplings for hydraulic pumps, transmissions, stub shafts or other drive systems. Controls can be on-engine or on a harness for remote mounting. The completed power unit can be provided as open, semi-enclosed, or fully enclosed.
Here’s a small sample of some of the power units we have built.
