These transmissions are proven workhorses. While most heavy duty transmissions on the market have a #80 final drive sprocket, this is what Jamesway uses on the standard duty unit! The DOUBLE #80 final drive on our Heavy Duty unit can handle the biggest loads. Modular construction makes it easy to service. Indeed, the Model 15/16 barn cleaner transmission gets it’s name from the fact that when you need to perform service, there is only one size of wrench you need to bring…..15/16”.

Manure Elevator Ramps

Model 2000 Fixed elevator up to 50 ft long
Model 4000 Swinging elevator up to 85 ft long
Model 8500 Swinging truss elevator up to 85 ft long
Model 8800 Fixed truss elevator up to 85 ft long

Jamesway offers many models of manure elevator ramps, from the economical Model 2000 up to the giant truss models. All are available with tongue-and-groove wood trough floors and sides, or in all steel. These models are designed for use with Jamesway Model 15/16 barn cleaner transmissions, but adapter kits are available for many brands.

If you only need a smaller unit, then the Jamesway galvanized manure elevator may be right for you. This unit comes in 9 ft or 4 ft sections that are assembled and joined on-site. The bolted modular construction offers two major advantages: the compact shipping size saves cost, and the owner can easily replace trough sections when they are worn out. These units may be configured as 9 ft, 13 ft, 18ft or 22 ft long elevators.

Barn Cleaner Chains

Jamesway offers you four types of barn cleaner chain to choose from, all available with 2” high or 3” high paddles.

Brutus pintle chain has the ¼” thick paddles welded to the riveted link. Brutus chain sections are joined with a bolted link every 18”, making chain adjustment very easy. The rugged Brutus chain is built for the heavy jobs.

Bolted pintle chain comes in 12 foot sections and the paddles are bolted to the forged link. The bolted pintle chain is easy to ship and easy to handle. The ¼” thick paddles and wear shoes may be bolted CW or CCW rotation, making this a very popular model.

S-86 chain has the paddle welded to the joiner link. This gives very solid paddle attachment while still allowing you to replace worn or damaged paddles. S-86 chain is ideally suited to medium sized jobs.

7/8” Logging chain is the chain of choice for the roughest use. Fabricated in 21 foot sections, every piece is pre-stretched and stress tested to ensure the highest quality. Logging chain comes with the ¼” thick paddles welded in place every 18 inches.

All Jamesway chains are also available in models for use with chain scraper systems.
