Front & Rear Idler Axle Assembly for 18" Frames
Includes wheel plates
(Axle Assembly Only - No Wheels)
**Machines with a 20" Frame takes Part #AX3277
Completely Rebuildable. Internal Parts and Axle Shaft for this current design can be purchased.
Grease Filled, Greaseable - no liquid oil.
By being completely filled with grease, water will not be able to condensate which means no more corrosion on the bearings when properly maintained.
Assembly has a Shielded Grease Fitting for easy lubrication of bearings with a grease gun. It is recommended to use standard grease such as a #2 for re-lubrication or something similar.
Purgeable Seals - When grease is seen slightly coming out of the seal, this lets the end user know the axle assembly is full. This style of seal also allows moisture or contaminants to purge out of the assembly but cannot re-enter.
The Front & Rear Idler assemblys have been upgraded to a double stack tapered bearing for a total of four bearings. Factory has single bearings on each end. Durability is now increased greatly over the factory axle assemblies.
End user can install rubber factory wheels or upgrade to Bair's heavy duty, Heat Treated Alloy wheels.
