I have a combine mounted AWS air reel and I repeatedly blow bearings through the season. I think I went through 3 last year. Any thoughts as to what could be causing this? I've mounted them inside and out, added the greaseable flanges, tried higher quality bearings and still keep having issues.

Well I have tried both types of bearings. When I first got the thing it didn't have the greaseable flanges. Exact same scenario as gm, worked perfect the first year. 2nd year the bearings went and we lost a few fins on the fan. Figured the 2 were related, brought the fan into AWS, they put new fins on it and gave us these greaseable flanges. Almost makes me wonder if I should go back to non-greaseable ones...
