Plastic bushings for combine harvester

"The bearings met expectations and the material composition of the iglide bushings was all round better suited to the application."
- Company president

Rated for heavier loads than bronze bushings

A Canadian company is using plastic bushings on six pivot points in its combine headers, which are designed for cutting crops such as beans.

Instead of using oil-impregnated bronze or rubber-encased bushings, the company opted for iglide® self-lubricating plastic bushings, which are rated for heavier loads, easier to install, less expensive, and longer lasting. They are also better suited to the harsh environmental conditions, since they are completely dry running and dirt resistant.
