21 Feb The Black Series: Bearings built to withstand harsh conditions
Soil ingress is a big problem for farmers, particularly for bearings which are highly prone to failure due to unpredictable conditions. It is therefore important to select the right bearings that can withstand tough weather conditions and long periods of usage to minimize machine downtime during harvesting seasons.
