Default Maytag Powering an Ice Cream Freezer

Will a single model 92 power two 6qt. freezers in tandem?

Geared down enough, you can do anything, however I think there will not be enough HP to do the job, at a speed you need. It may run one freezer though, at a time, again it's in the gearing ratios.

I would think you could power the freezer if you used a mantis tiller gearbox and if you wanted to run another freezer use the other output shaft of the gearbox.

I agree with Andrew.....It MAY handle ONE, but I doubt Very seriously if it would handle Both.

Looking at this another way, the maximum continuous power that the best athlete in excellent condition can develop is ~1/4 hp, driving a crankshaft with his legs.

Therefore, if just about anyone can drive an ice cream churn with one hand, the power required to do so must necessarily be dramatically less than 1/4 hp.

So, how much power can the Maytag engine develop? 1/2 hp? I would say that, grossly inefficient gearing notwithstanding, the little engine could drive *several* churns, assuming that the gearing results in the correct speed.

I think that it's deceptive since the churns take so much torque to turn. But only at a very slow speed.

My Maytag 92 is geared through a 10 to 1 gear box and runs one 6 qt. freezer at about 60 rpm approximately 25 minutes till the ice cream is done. Most of the time when my ice cream is done my engine will die. I am not saying my engine is top notch but to run two, I do not believe it would do it efficiently with out being really geared down.

I run two 6 quart makers with a 5/8 HP Briggs WMB washing machine motor with no problem. The setup uses belt clutches so they can be engaged separately.

I don't think using a Maytag well work. Not enough torque. About 1 1/2 hp
hit miss with those nice heavy flywheels would work real good.

Hi, I've got a "think I can Maytag" on a 6qt, works fine. Rex.
