For all those that have used a helidor, I was wondering how many acres have u gotten out of a set of blades before you had to replace them. Also, how do the bearings and the hub assemblies hold up ? Or is that an issue that they need to be changed a lot. Thanks for any info.

friend of mine that has had one for 7 years in europe hasn't had a bearing fail yet, although we in canada have a heavier clay than him, haven't had bearing issues with ours yet been across 8000 acres now.

Yea we have a helidor and have done just over 20000 acres in the last 3 years and have changed every bearing and disc twice. Very costly and high maintenance, but definitely worth it in my opinion. It does such a great job. We work all of our corn and soybean stubble with it. We just changed to a different make and style of disc so hopefully it works well again.

Isaiah21, have u had to change any bearings during while u are working? Or do u do them all when u change the discs? The reason I am asking is that there would be a lot of downtime if I had to be changing bearings all the time when I am working the fields. What about the hubs, have u had to change any of those ?
