The GrizzlyDrive® Drum Motor is manufactured for demanding belt conveyor applications, from aggregate processing to underground mining, ship loading and power generation. The GrizzlyDrive® features high quality precision-made components, including a robust sealing system that prevents contamination, and cylindrical roller bearings that sustain high levels of belt tension, shock loads, and vibration.

All components are engineered to withstand harsh, abrasive, and dusty environments. The motor, gear reducer, and bearings are all bathed in oil and enclosed and protected inside the drive drum, increasing safety. The GrizzlyDrive® is designed for 80,000 hours of service life before maintenance, decreasing maintenance and operating costs. The optional VDG patented IronGrip™ lagging extends the life of the belt and other rotating conveyor components, such as rollers and idlers.

GrizzlyDrive® Drum Motors 75 hp and higher are supplied with the VDG Oil Cooling/Conditioning unit as standard which circulates and conditions the oil for optimal lubrication and heat dissipation, ensuring a cooler running motor and extending the life of the drive.

GrizzlyDrive® Series Drum Motors are available up to 500HP, with a wide range of diameters, belt speeds, lagging, and options to suit various belt conveyor applications.
