This kit replaces the bushing on a closing wheel arm with a bearing. It can be used on brand new planters and on planters that already have some wear to the closing wheel arm. Having the closing wheel arms tight is critical to keeping closing wheels centered on the seed trench and ensuring that your closing wheel can operate at peak performance. If your arm is worn, you will need to weld a bearing housing on to the outside of the tailpiece to hold a ball bearing. The closing wheel arm is CastSteelwhich allows the ability to weld to. If the closing wheel arm is NEW, with NO acreage, you may be able to use a ball bearing without a weld on housing. If you have questions on which kit is right for you PLEASE CALL.
THE BEARINGS ARE A SLIP FIT INTO THE COLLARS. There will be some additional clearance in them prior to being welded. This is so that once you have welded, painted and installed the arms, the bearing will still fit into the sleeve.
Please specify model of planter so that the correct kit is sent!
Price is per tailpiece (2 bearings/collars, bolts and washers included for WORN tailpieces)
