Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance-free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field. Here, we will compare true maintenance-free designs with alternative designs, as well as go into the requirements for creating a true maintenance-free pivot.

Agriculture, construction, and heavy duty all deal with harsh, dirty, and corrosive environments. Your bearings have to hold up! Shaft hardness plays a major role avoiding maintenance.
In part 2 of the series we discuss shaft roughness and its effect on complex composite bearings.
In part three of the shafting considerations blog posts, Agriculture and Heavy Duty Industry Manager, Nick Van Tol covers the topic of corrosion resistance. How to spot it and avoid it!
Sometimes the best solution is an antiquated one! This post reviews how a felt ring protects the bearing and shaft and helps avoid hundreds of hours of maintenance.
There are a lot of factors to consider when designing a pivot, but there's one in particular that's crucial to achieving a successful, maintenance-free pivot bearing.
Plastic bearings are now designed to stand up to high speeds and loads, extreme temperatures, caustic chemicals, and a wide range of other application requirements. In this infographic, see the top 5
