Twin Spring Coupling Agriculture Couplings.
TSC500Ag and TSC300Ag replacements for Weasler, Walterscheid, Bondioli, Neapco universal joints and PTO couplings
Twin Spring coupling replaces mechanical power transmission couplings or universal joints, in all kind of agriculture applications, including headers, attachments, PTO attachments, driveline, steering.
Traditional universal joints are susceptible to water, mud, dust and debris impregnating the bearings, leading to seizure and replacement.
This makes constant maintenance a way of life, wasting time and money. The average universal joint used in agriculture needs to greased every 8 hours of use, for most farmers that’s 4 days of use based on a 2 hours a day usage estimate.
Add to that bearing manufacturers give their products a “lifespan” estimate on the angle it is used at, so less than 4 degrees have a lifespan of 1x, 8 is 2x.
Bearing Cross – This means the bearings is used at the higher angles will wear out quicker and need to be replaced twice as much. That unfortunately isn’t the end of it, then to add to that estimation of lifespan you have to include the HP and speed they are used at.
So the higher the HP and higher angle of use, the lifespan replacement can then go to 4x, meaning its 4x more likely to be replaced or fail because of this usage.
We do things differently mainly because our Twin Spring Couplings don’t have bearings so the replacement factor does not apply to our flexible couplings.
Add to that because they don’t contain bearings they don’t need to be greased every 8 hours, which means less time maintaining, more time using your farming equipment.
This is just the part of a universal joint that fails the most, but the universal joint being made up of 3 parts, also has yokes or the input and output shaft connectors.
Yokes – The yoke while made from cast steel are very strong, they do have a weakness where the bearings of the universal joint are attached, these bearings are small so the yokes are machined down to fit these bearings which when the bearings are put under load can crack. This means they have to be replaced as the universal joint cant be used with a cracked yoke.
Twin Spring Coupling again, we do it differently as our coupling is a one piece design so the “yokes” or hubs to us are integrated into the product so makes it one solid piece again eliminating the possibilities of a shaft connector breaking. This again means no downtime or waiting for a replacement yoke.
