Bearing Application Requirements
GGB SBC with HSG agricultural bushings for rubber track systems

Standard wheel-driven tractors and harvesters are available in rubber track versions for better traction in muddy, sandy, soft and slippery terrain.

Hardened steel bearings mounted in the track system required frequent lubrication, exhibited extensive wear and became corroded with rust.
