We are told that PTO guards are safety critical equipment. I agree with that.
Why then can’t manufacturers affix a label that will last more than 8 years indicating part number? The plastic bearing has worn out. There is no part number on it. I’ve no idea where to obtain a replacement in a timely or cost efficient manner. It would be a shocking waste of resources to replace the entire guard or shaft.
What other industry other than farming would tolerate such poor maintainability and documentation of critical safety equipment?
Come on manufacturers. Help us out. Safety matters.
If anybody knows where I can get a pair of plastic bearings for Weasler shafts then let me know. Appears to be serie 250 but can’t find that on the net, but there are as ever hundreds of different variations on what should be a very common standard item.
