Vesconite bushes solve needle roller bearing problems in forklift kingpins under difficult conditions.
|Forklift steer axles typically are factory fitted with needle roller kingpin bearings. These bearings
are prone to wear especially in dirty environments.
Vesconite was installed on a 2.5 ton Yale forklift working in a metal recycling plant. Vesconite replaced the
kingpin bushes and kingpin thrust rings. The forklift truck worked 3 shifts per day, often over broken concrete
Vesconite kingpin bushes and thrust rings
The factory fitted OEM needle roller bearings lasted 2 months under these conditions.
Vesconite kingpin bushes inspected after 4½ years of operation were still fine.
Vesconite offers a long life even when lubrication is not reliable.
Vesconite – better than the original.
