Gauge wheel axle kit

The gauge wheel axle kit from Aricks is the final piece in making your disc opener completely non-greasable! The gauge wheel depth adjustment, via the axle rotation, is a common point for seizing on the JD 60, 90 and Pro-series openers. In dry, dusty conditions, grease and dirt pack together, becoming rock-hard, inhibiting rotation of the axle and rendering the depth adjustment arm useless. These new axles won’t seize, allowing for smooth operation of the depth adjustment arm.

Farmers face enormous difficulties trying to unseize their axles in order to adjust seed depth. Most resort to removing the entire disc opener and placing it in a hydraulic press to force out the seized axles.

Another issue is once these cast arms get a little movement in the connection to the gauge wheel axle, it’s very difficult to keep them tight. Now those worn cast arms, combined with a new Aricks axle, will never become loose again. Sold as a kit to give you maximum flexibility in replacing several components at once.

 

Greaseless, Won’t Seize

The gauge wheel depth adjustment, via the axle rotation, is a common point for seizing on the JD 60, 90 and Pro-series openers. In dry, dusty conditions, grease and dirt pack together, becoming rock-hard, inhibiting rotation of the axle and rendering the depth adjustment arm useless. These new axles won’t seize, allowing for smooth operation of the depth adjustment arm.

 

Reuse Worn Cast Arms

The solid axle shaft attachment point has been beefed up for greater surface contact, allowing you to reuse the worn depth adjustment arms, for even more savings.

 

Quality Bushings & Seals

High-quality bushing material in the axle spindle and an extremely effective and durable seal to keep the axle shaft dust free and running smoothly for many acres to come.
