Aug 13, 2019 | 18:48 2 Did you really need to buy it 3 times and take 3 pictures? For that price, 1 would be enough. Reply With Quote
Aug 13, 2019 | 18:59 3 There has to be a place that would just sell the bearing....that's crazy. ... Reply With Quote

Aug 13, 2019 | 20:19 5 That bearing is the same as the one used on a JD 936 draper header and I used to buy Honey Bee bearings because they were cheaper. That is just the bearing, I have changed several of them and used to keep a new one in stock. They are very hard to change, If I remember right I used to take that end cap off and smash the outer and inner race. Very dangerous wear protection every where! You have to locktight the end cap screw when you reassemble. I think the bearing and casting are all standard Shumacker (I may have spelled that wrong). I remember the bearing is special and not just available anywhere. If you really need to know. I am sure I have one somewhere and I can find out more information. I have taken them off in one piece too but it is difficult. Good luck.
Oh and don't run a loose one or run one with the plastic bushing pounded out or of course you will be breaking knife heads or knives. Reply With Quote
Aug 13, 2019 | 20:23 6 Sorry took a good look at your picture and I see they have changed the way the bearing is retained. I would probably try and get the older style casting that you could change the bearing on. Reply With Quote
Aug 13, 2019 | 22:23 7 Might be the same bearing as the rear wheel on a Chevy Aveo. Chinese version 33.95 online. It don't get any cheaper! 25mmX52mmX37mm
As pgluca said you have to pull it off the crank. If the crank is okay you will get paid well to pull the bearing.

New Holland lists bearing for $154. #86565872

What you have in the pic is supposed to be better than the old style. You would have to change other parts to go back to the old style.

Also, the style shown in the picture you posted is not serviceable. A complete assembly crank and bearing from Schumacher.

    Isn't Schumacher German technology, maybe the bearing is only available in Europe but the part is sold in North America as an assembly.

    We have a Schumacher cutting system on one of our Agco headers, seems almost bullet proof. Reply With Quote
