Bearing Arrangements for Tillage and Harvesting
Changing Plow Discs in No Time At All
The inclined position of plow discs results in transverse forces and bending moments as well as radial loads. Schaeffler has developed a maintenance-free unit that only requires screw mounting onto the plow disc and machine frame.
The unit is based on a double-row angular contact ball bearing from FAG's range of automotive wheel bearings. An additional high-performance three lipped cassette seal is located on the side subjected to contamination. Two grease reservoirs located between the seals ensure that the seal lips are permanently lubricated on the one hand and prevent the ingress of contamination on the other.
