AVOID REGULAR GREASING AND DOWNTIME
On a planter there are literally hundreds of grease nipples which require regular greasing to maintain performance and reasonable life. Grease does not last and metal to metal wear is ongoing, given the environment of sand, dirt and grit. With Vesconite, these issues are a thing of the past, as the material is self-lubricating and abrasion resistant. Wear rates are consequently lower, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. Removal and fitting is also greatly simplified compared to steel and ball-bearings, which can be prone to seizing.
