You can shred an Omega coupling of that size and the motor will just keep running. I still think the motor either stopped suddenly (and the load didn't), or tried to reverse rotation.

In the first post Big J states this equipment is driven by another identical motor and gear box on the other end of shaft. I think that is a factor as to what happened here, depending on how the drives are set up.

Good share,  in my opinion it appears that only the coupling side of the motor had bolts, and with the foot on the left front having some gold (or appears to when I zoom in it gets to cloudy) it was likely cracked for a while. I don't know what the torque is or the rotation is but could be a likely cause or maybe a contributing factor.

I have been away for a week. Good discussion. I don't know if the motor is still here. I will look around and check into the gold color pointed out in the picture. Aside from the motor and GBX on the other side of the shaft the system does not see a large load. It just conveys logs one at a time up a rounded incline.

Is this essentially how the motor was found?  The wiring to the conduit box being pulled out would give some clue as to the reaction torque.

Yes that was the first crime scene photo. Nothing had been touched at that point. It may be worth mentioning that the base where the bolts go through the base was very damaged. It required a porta power under the base to repair the areas where the bolt holes are.
