8' Ford shredder

I am looking at an 8' Ford shredder, serial number I76I that my neighbor has for sale. The only other number on the ID plate is the component number 22-I26. I am guessing it is a late 70's model when Ford went whole hog for greaseless bearings. I can't find any zirc fittings on the spindles or carrier bearing, yet it is a heavy built shredder. I would like to see a parts blowup to see if there is any way to lubricate the blade pulley shafts. Does anybody know where I should look for this info?

I have that same mower (Ford calls it the Series 902 100" Rotary Cutter) and the bearings are sealed. When I bought mine a couple of years ago both bearings were rusted out on one side and I got new ones from CNH for about $33 each. I shopped around and believe it or not CNH had the best price. The CNH part number is 9808112.

I decided to wait and see how long these last. If and when they go bad I was thinking of buying the same bearing without the sealed feature and then I will drill and tap the housing that the bearings go in for a zerk fitting. I will put the zerk between the 2 bearings so that when I pump grease in it will force it's way through both bearings.

I assume you are talking about a flail mower? I have a 7foot model 22-125.

If you are mine has zerks on the rear roller and the main "drum" shaft. I cant remember right now on the side pulleys. I will try to look tonight.

Guess I should read my typing better...

I meant " If your mower is the same as mine."

I have another quick question for both of you and anyone else that might have an opinion. The tongue weight if this cutter is so much that the clevis tries to turn vertical when operating. It has bent and sheared pins in the past. I am thinking about welding an "ear" on top to keep it horizontal, but I'm not sure this will work.
How have you dealt with this?

I havent had that problem on any of my pull equip. Are you bending the hitch pin or the shear pin on the PTO?

On my batwing mower (12ft) I had a lot of slop and machined a spacer/washer to take up the space between the drawbar and the clevis. I never bent pins or anything, just bounced around too much.

Can you give more detail?

Well, Rick, I haven't even tried to use the mower yet. I brought it home from the neighbor's house a few days ago. There are several things I plan to do to it just to get it so that I'll feel safe using it. The U-joint at the PTO connection is chewed up. I'll have to replace the joint itself and one yoke. The weight of the hitch makes the clevis turn vertical when being used, so I'm making a keeper out of 3/8" plate. I'm planning to try this thing on the 3-point drawbar, and if it works okay, I may try it on the drawbar.

The clevis turning sounds similar to what I described above. With the spacers in between the clevis it takes the slop out of the hitch so it cant twist as much. I have never seen anything twist as much as you are talking about. Does this mower only have one tail wheel? If it does that would really let it rock. If so I would definitely go to two, especially with an 8 footer.

I dont see how that twisting would hurt the u-joints. The twisting is in the same axis as the PTO. Those joints will take a beating when turning rear tight. My 12' mower has a c.v. joint in the PTO plus a single u-joint at the mower, with that you can turn it 90 degrees without any PTO binding. The rear tire will hit the tongue first.

Let us know how it works.
