Drive Gear Kit

The drive gear is located at the bottom of your compactor and helps the drive motor power the ram by operating the chain that powers the compacting ram. If you notice that your drive gear is broken or damaged, look to replace it straight away to avoid causing any more damage to the trash compactor. If your trash compactor is jammed or stuck with the ram in the down position, it could be due to the drive gear being damaged or faulty. The most common issue with drive gears is that the teeth break. This occurs through regular use. Once teeth are broken from the gear, you should replace the part. This kit comes with everything you will need to properly install your new drive gear.
