Need some help sourcing conveyor parts
« on: May 13, 2017, 11:52:48 am »
Well we're slowly upgrading the ole' firewood processor system at my place.  I've got a Hakki 1x37 with a log lift and it works fine, BUT, trying to up my production.  I've got a used infeed deck off a CRD wood processor and that will feed the processor .  The problem is the 1x37 has a short infeed belt.  Me and my buddy have started to build an "intake" conveyor, also belt drive.  I can find the rollers I need and I'm pretty sure I've got a source for the belting.  What I really need help with is the drive roller.  I've got -0- on the kind of roller I need there.  The 1x37 has a roller that looks like a paddle wheel on a river boat but the "paddles" are flat.  I will try and find a pic of it.  The conveyor will be flat, belt will be about 8in wide and run about 12ft of table.  Any help is appreciated!

Take a look at the Rapistan conveyor site and see if anything there looks appropriate.
I have one of those in a state of misassembly, if you want to take a look at the drive roll etc.

Thanks!  I will check the site out on Tues when I'm near a real computer again.  One of these days I'll swing on in and introduce myself, not like I don't drive by a dozen times a week.

I spoke with Jim from PRC Industrial out of Portland, ME.  He's the NH sales rep.  He's coming to look at what I'm running and an get an idea of what we're building, and see about prices.  I'll let you know how it all works out.
