Weasler PTO couplings – Replace them with a maintenance free alternative

Weasler PTO couplings Weasler PTO couplings are a brand well known in the agriculture industry, much like Spicer Uni joints in the Auto industry. Both 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 […]

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, what are your options?

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 […]

The true cost of universal joints

Uni Joints replacement Spicer 1310 U-Joint

The true cost of universal joints are not so simple, a low initial price but with ongoing maintenance means it becomes a lot more expensive Lets face it, its an old technology, 115 years old to be exact, the first use of the word by inventor Robert Hooke in 1676 shows the coupling is far […]
