Agricultural Universal Joints need to be tough, the water, dirt, mud and dust is tough on equipment, harsh working environments plus constant use means premature failure. Whether on a PTO, attachment or driveline the constant greasing (every 250 hours) means a constant maintenance item that has to be done and constantly checked for wear and replacement.

Weasler PTO couplings – Replace them with a maintenance free alternative

Weasler PTO couplings Weasler PTO couplings are a brand well known in the agriculture u-joints, Walterscheid and Bondioli as well . They all rely on the underlying universal joint technology to work. The only real difference is the Weasler PTO couplings are made using larger uni joints, revolving around technology like the Spicer 1310/ Spicer […]

Spicer Universal joints vs Twin Spring Coupling flexible alternative

Spicer Universal Joints replacement with Twin Spring Coupling

Spicer Universal joints vs a bearing free, flexible alternative. Spicer Uni joints design are broken into two different offerings With 2 models both use needle bearing in the bearing cross, one is greaseable, the other is not as it is called a permanently greased. The universal joint is all the same whether a friction bearing […]

No 1 reason for Coupling failures – bearing contaminants, time for something new?

Coupling Bearing U joint failure

Coupling bearing contaminants – Water, mud, dirt and dust contaminants are one of the many ways that bring uni joints to a halt. Rubber boots, constant greasing and inspections are the usual way used to keep the coupling bearing inside couplings working. That’s part of the ROI but what about the annual cost that adds […]

Bearing failure in Universal joints?

Bearing failure in uni joints TSC300 flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Bearing Failure in Uni joints, there are only a few option available. The universal joint is one of these fundamental shaft coupling solutions, it’s been used for the past 115 years in the automotive industry and longer in other areas like Industrial and farming. The three-piece design while simple, has always had to been maintained […]

Spring’s here – its universal joint maintenance time.

Universal Joint and power transmission couplings So the weather is changing, the short cold days of winter are starting to recede. Now is the time of the service manager starting to his maintenance schedule for plant and equipment. Couplings come into play here as the constant greasing of universal joints and replacement of worn bearings/yokes […]

Twin Spring Coupling products now ISO9001:2015 standard

Twin Spring coupling flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Twin Spring Coupling does a QA system resolve fundamental design flaws like that in a universal joint? Twin Spring Coupling with its alliance with Yuanlu announces all our products are now ISO9001 QA certified. The certification is important especially after we have seen the universal joint/yoke failures in the Ford range of Transit vans and […]
