    Heavy Equipment

    Ouch, I busted an axle bearing and threw a chain yesterday :/ this is going to be expensive:
    ... must ... think ... positive is going to be an interesting learning experience, right?



    Doubt anybody here has replaced one of these recently, but hey, holler if you have any advice.

    I think it is a problem of improper TCLOC.

    Treads, Controls, Lights, Oil & Lube, Chassis. Maybe return the S for Seat... always important.

    doesn't appear to be any lubrication points for that bearing, I'll watch for that on the new one.
    :I think it's been going for a while, apparently **it happens.

    You guys getting lots of riding in? Weather's been awesome up here, maple trees are starting to turn red in the wet areas.

    NLGI Gr#2 EP grease. If there’s an “EP” requirement, it’ll likely contain lithium. Lithium is very toxic to crops, so over lubing should be minimized. Should be “zerk” fittings somewhere near the axle...

    old when I got it, fittings might have been sheared off
    apparently it runs bushings and not roller bearings (possibly steel), I have to remove 2 bolts near the track adjuster and then pull about 400 pounds of steel off the thing, or/ drive the axle apart where it is rebuild the wheel, then replace the axle that's about as big as my wrist no crops where I use this beast, just trees rock and top soil about 10 feet thick in places.

    Excavator is all fixed fixed it myself so it wasn't very expensive, the new entire wheel axle and bearing assembly was ~500$ plus some shipping. No grease nipple on the new one, turns out they are steel on steel bushings and it's suppose to be filled with oil, once the oil seals are done the thing pretty much disintegrates that oil seal was done when I bought it. Absolutely brilliant simple design, super easy to work on other then every part is heavy enough to crush you. Tools required: 1 tractor, 5 foot long pry bar, a tow chain, a grease gun and about 2 pounds of grease.

    Excellent!

    What oil is used in the primaries?

    For Cat 657's, they use Rotella T50.

    I think 643's do too.

    My Korean is "rusty" to say the least!

    Is the equipment a "Hyundai?" (They DO make heavy equipment.)

    Hyundai with a Cummins diesel, Robex 130LC3 plus 2 buckets (1 for digging, one for soft materials) and a fixed thumb.
