Bearing Application Requirements
GGB HSG plain bearings and bushings for crop sprayer boom arms

Crop sprayers, both self-propelled and trailed, incorporate plain bearings in the pivot joints of the arms to fold and unfold them.

This demanding application requires plain bearings that can operate in all types of harsh weather conditions and resist corrosion from chemical exposure during controlled dosing of dry or liquid herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers.
