Repair Difficulty:
Hard
Time Spent Repairing:
More than 2 hours
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Wrench Set, Allen wrenches, wheel puller, hand grinder
Two rotor flat mount bearings
1. Pulled engine and limb chute
2. Removed Allen bolts from bearings and pulleys
3. Removed belt
4. Unbolted old bearings from frame
5. Remove rotor if free from bearings. If not use wheel or bearing puller to remove. A good time to resharpen blades and repair rotor if needed.

Good luck it's not easy but doable with the proper tools

Caution: Make sure the clearance between rotor knives and limb chute are close as possible, very hard to see or measure, adjust before setting and tightening allen bolts.

Tool Type:
Chipper Shredder
Parts Used:
Bearing, 1 In. Flushmount - 16234B
Belt, 29.1 Matched Set - 17996
Repair Difficulty:
Hard
Time Spent Repairing:
1-2 hours
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Socket set, Adjustable Wrench, Pipe wrench and pipe cheater bar
Bearing wore out
The locking collar, the rotor pulley and the bearing itself did not come off easily. The locking collar was the toughest to remove. I tried everything suggested from YouTube videos without success including WD40, Acetic acid to dissolve the "rust bond" between collar and shaft, two types of torches to heat and lost of banging. What does work is using a pipe wrench on the collar in both directions while simultaneously prying up the bearing from behind with a pry bar. It took me three days of failed YouTube attempts and one night of remembering I had pipe wrenches stored somewhere. The 2 foot long cheater bar was important also to give effortless torque. Because this was the bearing next to the motor, the whole job took about 2 hours excluding all the wasted time and effort from other "expert" advice.

  • Whew!
    Super nervous about replacing both bearings on my chipper but it went better than planned. The unit itself was slightly damaged when the bearing went out. Pounded things straight, and used washers to beef up where the bolts go through the unit housing. But the bearings were the easy part. A bit of effort to remove, but went on clean and easy. Cleaned and maintained the engine before remounting...Lined up the belt, and started chipping. Cheers!

    Superior to Original
    This was a replacement bearing for a 25 year old Bearcat Chipper. The chipper should have been built with this bearing. It is superior in every way. The addition of a greasing point would have most likely saved the old bearing. Replacement took 20 minutes.
