Location of nuts
- Top tie-rod/stud nuts for bearing caps on drum shear end frames
Benefits of Hydraulic Lock-up
- Quick, positive lock-up and release with controlled pre-stress of tie-rods to overcome drum shear separating forces during shearing
- Net benefit: faster drum change-out and more consistent crop knife gap settings for reduced crop end scrap. No heavy wrenches or removal tooling required
Type of nuts: Block Nuts (custom designed).
