flywheel bearing

Recommended Posts

we have just noticed a small amount of play in the front bearing ( nearest the hopper) when you grab the flywheel at 9 and 3 oclock  one can feel a small amount of play.

obviously this will have to be fixed, my question is can it be used like this or is there a danger of it causing more damage?

its a jensen 530 chipper.

any thoughts?

thanks carl

The damage may already be done to the bearings but you want to avoid the possibility of the shear bar getting clouted by a passing blade. I believe that hydraulic tank forms part of the rotor housing/fabrication and damage to that on top of the blades/shear bars could be catastrophic! Best get it booked in for the bearing swap. Prolonged further use could also damage the shaft and add  ore expense!
