Protect-O-Shield Bearings are extremely durable; their design virtually eliminates blown seals and wrap damage. For starters, the triple-lip seals lock in grease to keep the bearings properly lubricated. The bearing also holds the seal securely in place during lubrication, preventing pressure from the grease gun from causing a blowout.
But the real secret is our protective shield, which provides an extra layer of defense against dirt and debris. The protective shield covers both sides of the bearing. Any material your equipment kicks up while moving through the field is blocked from damaging or getting stuck in your bearings, allowing you to cover more acres and spend less time replacing clogged or damaged bearings.
“The Protect-O-Shield Bearing is designed to be over-greased to purge out dirt and debris, which will help increase the life of the bearing,” said AMCO Marketing Manager Michael Atwood.
AMCO Protect-O-Shield Bearings are guaranteed for two full years. They should be re-lubricated with appropriate conforming grease after each use and at the end of the season. During lubrication, the bearing should purge new grease and then be rotated to ensure the cavity is completely filled.
