That is a pretty good guess Buck... I like how you think outside the box!

But that is not what it is!!!!

What I'm concerned with is what's INSIDE the box. Is there an electric motor in there that turns the wheel?

Ok....A belt goes on the pulley...to an electric motor? Or gasoline? Then what's "inside" is the key.....Some type of fan? It opens and closes gates?


Then again...the motor is inside. Is it motor of some kind?

Buck and Uncle Bob...

Yes there is a motor which is rated by horse power. 1 HP or 3/4 HP. It is electric.

Uncle Bob... this thing eliminates the need for a pulley.

Keep guessing!

Does it operate continuously or in short bursts?

Hmmm... good question. It's purpose is pretty heavy duty IMO. I would say that it is not used continually.. it is used continually, but I don't think it would be running continually.

If I understand, it does not run all the time but operates intermittently?

Yes, you understand correctly... sorry I was not very clear about that. I was trying to think about it as I typed on how it is used.

Does a belt or chain or rope of some sort go around the wheel?
