Add On Bearings For IH Disc Drills
"Anyone who owns an IH, Great Plains, Melroe or Crustbuster drill wants to buy them as soon as they see them. They sell themselves," says Tom Laubach, distributor of a new center hub assembly that completely replaces factory hubs.
The problem with the bearings on these drills, according to Laubach, is that they don't last. "They're too small. You have to replace them at least three times over the life of a drill. Our bearing assembly will last the life of the drill."
The replacement assembly uses the same bearing used on Deere disk drills and is designed for much easier installation and removal than the factory hubs, which get rusted in place and are difficult to remove with the screwdriver slot provided.
Also, Laubach says his bearing is placed on the center line of the disc, rather then off to the side as on the factory units, placing less stress on the bearing. It's fitted with the same dust seal used on Deere drills because of its easy availability and long life.
The add-on assemblies can be fitted to both single and double discs. They sell for $10 apiece. "Replacement bearings alone cost $6 apiece from IH and they won't last the life of the drill like ours," says Laubach.
