Universal Greaser Saves Sealed Bearings
Two issues ago (Vol. 18, No. 2) FARM SHOW featured Feldt's `Bearing Saver" for rotary hoes that lets you grease sealed rotary hoe bearings without taking the bearings out of the wheel. The new universal greaser works on the same principle.
It consists of a round flat metal plate fitted with different dia. rubber seals around a center vertical shaft. The bearing to be greased is laid over the shaft, flat on the plate, and then a tapered plate is tightened down over the top of the bearing. You then inject grease using a grease gun through a hole in the center shaft. As grease is forced into the bearing under pressure, you rotate it so the seal on the bearing isn't damaged.
We can grease 90 percent of sealed bearings, resulting in tremendous savings in parts and improved performance of equipment,"says Feldt, who sells the greaser for $149, including a grease gun.
