Y-bearings for agricultural applications

Relubrication-free with a robust, 5-lip seal design

Too often, contaminant ingress or lubricant loss from failed seals leads to premature agricultural shaft bearing failures and machine break-down.

Specifically designed for agricultural applications, SKF Y-bearings withstand the toughest operating conditions, while reducing downtime and environmental impact. Suitable for high-demand and regular positions, Y-bearings for agricultural applications are relubrication-free and feature a robust, five-lip seal design. Versions with an advanced locking system and optional corrosion protection are also available.  

Five-lip seal for improved protection

The five-lip seal integrated into SKF agricultural Y-bearing units is suitable for extremely contaminated environments where long service life is required. It consists of a stamped steel insert, with a vulcanized five-lip patented seal made from a low-friction compound.

Built to last up to 4 years or more

Compared to the 1 to 3-year life cycle of conventional bearings, Y-bearings for agricultural applications are built to last up to 4 years or more – a 30-50% increase in service life (based on SKF testing). For farmers and OEMs alike, the units offer greater reliability, a more eco-friendly footprint and reduced total ownership costs.
