Handy Repair For Combine Pickup Rollers
Don Voss, Spiritwood, Sask.: "To re-pair combine pickup rollers, round baler rollers, Hesston straw chopper rotors, and any other rollers that have shafts with only one washer supporting the end, we've come up with a handy repair. We install two washers inside each end of the roller, with one at the end and the other a couple inches inside the tube. We weld the washers to the shaft, then machine them in the lathe for a tight fit inside the tube. Makes them a lot stronger. For example, Hesston choppers get out of balance when the single washer bends slightly. We can save these expensive rotors with this simple repair."
filters. Does anyone have any ideas?
