Gear Pros: Howell Ambassador Elevator Head Drives

In Service Since WWII


Howell Ambassador gear drives have been around for a long time, and they last along time. Many of the calls we receive for replacement parts are for head drives that are over 25 years old. We still hear about drives that were in service since the early 1940's.

Repair Your Head Drive in Place


One of the advantages to the Ambassador elevator head drive is that in many cases it can be easily repaired while still installed on the leg. This saves you time, money, and hassle. Getting a crane onsite is a pain, sometimes it is impossible to remove the head drive from a leg without disassembly. For more information, contact us.
