What is a Dodge Gearbox? 

Gearing components can be a lot to keep straight. Sometimes the terminology used by engineers and component designers are interchangeable. The term gearbox is sometimes used interchangeably with “gearhead” or “gear reducer.” Even though those components sometimes include slightly varying physical arrangements of gears. 

A Dodge gearbox is actually contained in the gear train, or a mechanical unit consisting of a series of gears within a housing. It is, quite literally, a box containing gears, which functions like any system of gears does– altering speed and torque between a driving device like a motor and a load. A minimum of two gears are included in the device with one of the gears driven by the motor. The relationship between speed of the gearbox and the gear ratio is inversely proportional. Conveyors and cranes are examples of constant speed applications that commonly use gearboxes that produce increased torque. 

Dodge Gearboxes

Dodge gearboxes are high quality components used in many different applications including machine tools, conveyors, industrial equipment, and essentially any rotary motion power transmission application that requires changes in torque and speed. Dodge gearboxes are exceptionally effective, offering high efficiency and consistent performance. At ProSource Industrial, we offer Dodge gearboxes to help you meet the specific needs of your application and operational requirements. 

Dodge Gearbox Types

Dodge gearboxes, also known as enclosed gearing, are available in a variety of types including:

  • Shaft Mounted Reducers
  • In-Line/Concentric Reducers
  • Off-Set/Parallel Reducers
  • Right Angle Reducers Vertical Gearmotor

Dodge Vertical Gearmotor

The Dodge Vertical Gearmotor (VGM) offers an alternative to the common vertical pump drive technologies, which make use of large, high pole count vertical motors or a combination of a horizontal motor with a right angle gear reducer. The Vertical Gearmotor can have significant benefits when compared to these other pump drive systems.


A smaller footprint and a lighter overall construction than traditional pump drive systems Cost savings from the ability to use a lower pole count motor versus higher pole count motor options Utilizing the reducer to accommodate thrust loading is more cost efficient than incorporating this functionality into the motor itself If required, an anti-rotation device can be easily incorporated into the Vertical Gearmotor configuration Higher efficiency and higher power Optimal pump shaft speed

These Dodge gearboxes are often used in pumping applications within a variety of industries including chemical, oil, and gas, and water and wastewater.
