|20150250092||MATERIAL SPREADER - A discharge device includes a plurality of material conveying components, an adjustable shear ledge, and an adjustable shroud to convey materials from a container of a material spreader out onto an open area. The adjustable shear ledge includes at least one longitudinal mounting member such that the adjustable shear ledge may be translated towards or away from the plurality of material conveying components to maintain a predetermined gap distance. The adjustable shroud may also be pivotably connected to the adjustable shear ledge such that the adjustable shroud can be pivoted towards or away from the plurality of material conveying components. The adjustable shear ledge and the adjustable shroud may be moved accordingly to maintain a preferred gap distance and to maintain concentricity with a swing of the material conveying components in order to reduce wear on components and promote spread performance of the material spreader.||09-10-2015|
|20150240934||CARTRIDGE DRIVE - A drive system includes a drive housing and one or more drivetrain cartridges. The one or more drivetrain cartridges enables better manufacturability by allowing drivetrain components to be installed together outside the housing and then installed as a unit together into the housing. Serviceability is improved by allowing one or more of the drivetrain cartridges to be removed individually from the housing for maintenance or repair. The housing may include mounting surfaces to securely engage the one or more drivetrain cartridges to the housing to prevent play. The housing may include a bottom or side panel with installation mounts to fasten the drivetrain cartridge or cartridges securely to the bottom or side panel of the housing.||08-27-2015|
