The GrizzlyDrive® drum motor is designed specifically for belt conveyors operating under harsh, abrasive and demanding conditions. It features robust mechanical seals, heavy-duty bearings, and an electric motor and gear reducer designed to absorb heavy shock loads. The patented IronGrip™ lagging, consisting of welded metal bars and rubber lagging sections with ceramic tiles, resists wear, providing accurate belt tracking and eliminating lagging delamination.

With all drive components such as motor and gear reducer enclosed inside the drum, the VDG GrizzlyDrive® eliminates the hazards posed by conventional external conveyor drive configurations, increasing operator safety, efficiency, and maximizing space utilization. All drive parts of the VDG drum motor are designed for up to 80,000 hrs. of continuous operation before maintenance. Available up to 500 HP and 42” diameter to suit most conveyor belt applications.
