  • Publication number: 20200166100
    Abstract: A hydraulic power module for a crop harvester, and in particular a cotton harvester, having an engine. The hydraulic power module includes a main drive gear, a drive shaft extending through the main drive gear, and a clutch operatively connected to the drive shaft, wherein the clutch has an engaged position and a disengaged position. The engaged position of the clutch fixedly connects the main drive gear to the drive shaft and the disengaged position of the clutch disconnects the main drive gear drive from the drive shaft. The hydraulic power module further includes a first pump device directly coupled to the drive shaft, wherein the first pump device is driven by the drive shaft during rotation of the drive shaft. A second pump device is indirectly connected to the drive shaft through the clutch, and is driven by the drive shaft when the clutch is in the engaged position.

  • Publication number: 20200032873
    Abstract: A damper assembly (100) is configured to dampen motion between a first component and a second component. The damper assembly (100) includes a housing (102) having at least one housing rotation-limiting protuberance (126). A rotor (104) is rotatably coupled to the housing (102). The rotor (104) includes at least one rotor rotation-limiting protuberance (160). The housing rotation-limiting protuberance(s) (126) and the rotor rotation-limiting protuberance(s) (160) cooperate to limit a range of rotation of the rotor (104) relative to the housing (102).
