So how many hours have you spent fixing your drill. It must be like a helicopter with 30 hours of maintenance for every hour of run time.Well here we go replacing the failed bearings in the packer cleaner pivot. This was the first area Bourgault updated to bearings instead of dry bushings. At this time Bourgault installed 2 bearings in this pivot with nothing between them. Over time we found that the bearings either slide to one side or they both slide into the middle of the housing. This allowed the seals to get wiped out easily being so far from the bearings. They filled with dirt and went out quickly.
This current update includes a plastic spacer between the bearings. I am removing all cleaner/packer assemblies and installing this update. Pins are all coming out extremely hard. Bearings are all together either in the middle or off to one side.
