Hayes Original Flywheel Couplings
The Hayes “original” Flywheel Coupling absorbs vibration and shock to provide a steady dampening effect. Many customers have replaced 2-Piece flywheel couplings with the Hayes Original Flywheel Coupling to eliminate problematic assembly issues on their production lines. Hayes Original Flywheel Couplings do not require any special assembly instructions to connect the pump shaft to the coupling. The one-piece flywheel coupling design gives you worry-free installation and ensures that your flywheel coupling will be installed properly the first time, every time. Our “original” flywheel coupling is a tried and true workhorse. With over 25 years of performance in the field, we have every confidence that our flywheel couplings will work for you. Spline couplings? Bore and key couplings? Hayes Original Flywheel Couplings have proven themselves in tough applications such as; arial lifts, bucket loaders, skid steer loaders, excavators, sweepers, wheel loaders, hydro seeders, power mulchers, and much more .

There are thousands of Hayes Original Flywheel Couplings in service throughout the world. They are used in gas and tough diesel engine applications where torsional vibration occurs. Our flexible neoprene elements absorb vibration and reduce shock loads, while providing a steady dampening effect. Hayes flywheel couplings take up very little space while transmitting a surprising amount of torque. They’re available with a wide variety of spline and bores & keys that come ready to bolt to your flywheel. The splines do not lock onto the shaft in order to allow for any axial movement. This is similar to a drive shaft assembly in automotive applications. All components of our flywheel couplings have been designed for maximum life (when operated at normal engine speeds, torque, alignment, and appropriately serviced). Please call your local distributor or our factory for assistance.
HEX-FLX Flywheel Couplings
The HEX-FLX flywheel coupling provides operation below critical speeds with its high torsional stiffness. It minimizes spline fretting and has the best shaft clamping abilities in its class (Patent No.: US 7,645,089 B2, Jan. 12, 2010). This flywheel coupling may be blue, but don’t let it get you down. Replacing existing flywheel couplings of a similar design with the HEX-FLX may even put a little $$ back in your budget. These 2-Piece Flywheel Couplings have proven themselves in tough applications such as; arial lifts, bucket loaders, skid steer loaders, excavators, sweepers, wheel loaders, and much more .

Marine and Irrigation Flywheel Couplings
Hayes manufactures straight-sided spline flywheel couplings for water pumps and marine gear transmissions. You should know that they’ve become an industry standard for replacing worn out drives that didn’t last as long as everyone had hoped. Buy one now BEFORE the next repair season!
Armadillo Flywheel Couplings
The Hayes “Armadillo” Flywheel Coupling absorbs vibration and shock to provide a steady dampening effect. The two-piece design gives you the ability to clamp onto both splined and keyed shafts which greatly reduces spline or shaft fretting corrosion. We have worked with many OEM’s to produce these flywheel couplings with multiple dynamic torsional stiffness values. In today’s world of tough generator and alternator applications, this product has proven to lengthen the life of every application it has encountered. Call us today if you need a workhorse flywheel coupling for your custom application.
Hayes Manufacturing, Inc.
The evolution of Hayes Manufacturing from a small garage to a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for stub shafts, splined couplings, flywheel couplings and drive couplings is nothing short of an American success story. The company has come a long way and is still growing. In 1966, Hayes Manufacturing started out as a fledgling, family business in a garage in Rochester, Michigan where it was primarily a job shop. Today, Hayes makes stub shafts, flywheel couplings and drive coupling products in a 33,000 square foot facility in Fife Lake, Michigan. We employ skilled personnel who take pride in manufacturing our engine housings, drive couplings, spline couplings, pump mount plates and flywheel couplings in the USA. Hayes is certified to the ISO 9001 quality standard and the ISO 14001 environmental standard. During all aspects of the manufacturing process of our flywheel couplings, pump mount plates, engine housings, drive couplings, stub shafts (and every one of our manufactured components), you can be sure that we employ rigorous quality standards and lean manufacturing practices. Hayes Manufacturing is constantly evolving its product line to meet the needs of customers– contact us today to discuss your application.
