Thin section bearings

Carrying heavy loads in tight spaces

Inside front wheels, hub bearings carry the weight of the vehicle, enabling wheel rotation, and, if necessary, relevant tilting moments and occasional shock loads. Front wheel hub bearings are usually included inside mobile planetary gearboxes where space is limited.

Downsize with less downtime

In sprayer, combine and tractor wheels, SKF thin section tapered roller bearings facilitate downsizing. Their high stiffness and high shock load capability reduce machine downtime, which leads to increased productivity and improved operator comfort.

At higher speeds, SKF thin section angular contact ball bearings have proven to be an effective solution for tractor front wheels.
