 Slip Clutches

I have a Land Pride 1558 rototiller equipped with a slip clutch. The operator's manual says that prior to initial operation and long periods of inactivity the clutch should be "run in". I have not done this yet since mine was a demo nearly new, and I store in in the basement out of the weather. I take it that this procedure is to ensure the clutch plates are freed up. Is this something that should be done on a regular basis and is it an important step. I could see where a stuck slip clutch could cause some damage. How many of you do this? Any other tips or suggestions are appreciated as well. Thanks.

 Slip Clutches

I heard you need to adjust them slip clutches often to keep them working properly, seem to me if they were out of adjustment they would just slip a lot , and probly burn and glaze over quicker.

 Slip Clutches

I was thinking that perhaps that they rusted or corroded, causing the clutch to not give way when it should. Either senario is not good. Guess I better start doing the run in from time to time.

 Slip Clutches

One type of slip clutch is designed to have smooth plates running on a friction lining. If you live in an area with high humidity or expose the clutch to rain, the metal plates can rust and cause the clutch to stick. (The same thing can happen to brake shoes sticking to a brake drum)

It should not be a problem if you can keep it from rusting. Do not use any chemicals or lubricants on a friction clutch. You can adjust the slipping torque by adjusting the tension in a spring or bolt arrangement.

A second type of slip clutch uses metal plates with radial grooves cut in them. The grooves on one plate mesh with the high points on the opposite plate. These clutches are spring loaded and generally are lubricated by grease. Normally this type of clutch does not need attention as long as it is kept greased and the plates can move on the shaft to release. They are adjusted by spring tension.

Thanks AC5ZO, it looks like mine is the first type of clutch you spoke of.
