How PEER Bearings are Essential to Agriculture

One of the things that we at PEER love is that we get to work with clients in a range of industries. Regardless of the specific industry, we are providing solutions that make jobs better and easier.

For years, we’ve worked with many of the world’s agricultural leaders, providing bearings that are simply the best in the business, and that our customers have come to trust.

Within the agricultural industry, bearings play a major role in the reliability of farm equipment.  All farm equipment with rotating components utilizes bearings of all types and sizes.  Hay balers and tillage equipment wouldn’t run without bearings.

What we know is that not all bearings are created equal and that ours are specifically designed to be especially reliable and consistent, as well as eliminating the need for daily relubrication. Hundreds of man hours and countless amounts of money and downtime are saved, as a result.

In fact, our bearings are so unique to agricultural applications that we’ve been getting a lot of industry attention. We were recently featured in an article on agricultural bearings in Farm Industry News, entitled “Essential Tech: Bearings.”

 The article, describing the ways in which a good bearing is essential to farming equipment, and how bearings have changed over the years, quotes our application engineering manager, Jordan Gutowski.

"The basic seal technology offered in rolling element bearings has been available for over 40 years…What our company has done is improve those seals to give the bearings more longevity in ag applications with high exposure to dust, soil, crop, moisture, etc."

The article then goes on to explain the innovative seal technology within our TILLXTREME line, and the ways in which the design of these bearings keeps dirt out while eliminating the need for daily relubrication of tillage discs and rolling baskets.

Our engineers and our customers know that our bearings are one-of-a-kind and that they offer solutions to the Agriculture industry that are changing the way machinery is operated, for the better. Now, we’re proud to see that the industry press has once again taken note.
