I have one of these disk, it has the dual wheels on each side and no wings, about 14ft wide. I have an awful time with the wheel bearings, I am constantly having to re-adjust them to keep them tight. I have repacked them many times and he problem continues.
Does anyone ele have the same problem or is it just me?

I found years ago to pull the hub cap and drill/tap it for a grease zerk I grease them every day I use them and the bearing adjustment/problems have all but went away I do this on all of my hubs even the front tractor wheel hubs cnt

CNT, will the caps like they make for boat trailers work; ie, can you find the right size? They make these with the grease zerks already in them, would save a bit of work shop tile, just pop the old ones off and new ones on and i thinks the material on the hubs is a little thicker where the zerk is so you get a few more threads to engage. The boating guys call them bearing buddies.

they may have a size to fit but I think the way they are made you would get dirt entry on units like discs that throw dirt at the caps and they stick out farther and could be knocked off possibly myself the original style cap is the better way to go I had several sets of the bearing buddies on my snowmobile trailers they worked well on them but were always pushing out grease so I think they would be a real mess in dirt just my thoughts though cnt

Thanks for the ideas, I have grease zeros and I have been greasing the wheels every year but it only disk about 20 acres a year. I'm going to put new bearings in and hopefully greasing it every day will help.

do you pump grease to it until it comes out the rear seals? they should run a thousand acres or more before you need to adjust them I have seen the threads on the spindle and or the adjusting nut be striped and then they will not hold adjustment either just a thought cnt
