The report covers the testing of three samples of revolution counters designated as Driveless Hubodometers. All three samples of the revolution counters were installed and tested on a Caterpillar Model 12E motor grader. The results of the endurance test indicate that the revolution counters would perform satisfactorily when installed on pneumatic-tire type of equipment. The results of the accuracy tests indicate that the revolution counters would be of limited benefit when installed on equipment traveling relatively short distances. On equipment traveling long distances 500 to 1,000 miles, the counters would have a high degree of accuracy and would prove to be beneficial. Author
