The UMC® Standard Coupler is designed to connect the center drive gear motor to the final drive gearboxes. In addition to connecting these critical drive train components the coupler acts as both a torque dampener to absorb start up torque from the gear motor and as a fuse to protect the other critical drive train components in an overload condition.
Features and Benefits
Shock-attenuating puck insert allows for softer starts and stops, extending final drive gearbox life
Designed as a fuse to protect the other critical drive train components in an overload condition
Alignment rod holds insert in place and maintains alignment under extreme loads
Urethane insert is an environmentally stable material with excellent UV and chemical resistance
Grooved insert option converts any coupler for a towable application
UMC SQUEX-bolts (Square-Neck, Hex-Head) create unique anti-rotation feature that allows for fast single wrench assembly

Proven service record of over 30 years
UMC® was the first to introduce the shock attenuating coupler with a flexible insert. This drastically improved gearbox life and significantly reduced drive train maintenance.
