Howell Ambassador

Welcome to our Howell Ambassador gear drive page

We are the proud company continuing the production of the Howell Ambassador Drive. The Ambassador elevator gear reducer is one of the few direct connect gear drives for the grain and feed industry. Direct connect means that the motor shaft is directly connected to the input shaft of the gear drive through a coupling. It does not depend on belts or chains to connect the motor to the drive.

The Howell Ambassador drive continues to provide low maintenance and cost effective operation for many years. We manufacture all replacement parts, assemblies, and oil for the Ambassador drive. One of the advantages to the Ambassador drive is that it is easily repaired while still installed on the leg. Most replacement parts and oil can be shipped immediately for next day delivery when needed. If you don’t have or know of a qualified service technician, give us a call and we can get you in touch with one.

Most importantly, it is our goal to meet and exceed your expectations. We are here to provide you, our valued customer, with the highest quality service and parts. We have maintained a record of all Ambassador drives that have been manufactured. Call us for any technical information and assistance on maintaining and servicing your drives. We realize the quality demands of our customers. We strive to produce the finest quality machined parts possible, every time.

Howell Ambassador gear drives have been around for a long time. Many of the calls we receive for replacement parts are for drives that are 25 or more years old. When customers have an older Ambassador drive they usually ask the same question:

What is the advantage to repairing our existing drive over replacing it?

1. Cost Efficient

  • Ambassador drives can be repaired and rebuilt while still installed on the elevator leg ·
  • Individual parts and bearings can be replaced rather than replacing the entire drive

2. Time Efficient

  • Most repairs can be done within a few hours
  • This means less down time

3. Improvements

  • Many improvements have been made to the manufacturing of internal drive components
  • Better quality alloy and stainless steels are used
  • A higher quality, more efficient oil has been formulated

4. Trust a Proven Performer

  • Ambassador drives have been in use for over 60 years
  • Many drives are still in continued use since as far back as World War 2
