Wheel Problem Deere 6120. I started working with agricultural machinery 3 years ago. I bought myself a used John Deere model 6120. A couple of weeks ago I started to notice wheel vibrations. I tried to adjust the bearings myself, but nothing came of it. What should I do next?
Any technique in the process of work gradually wears out. Naturally, from time to time it needs repair.In turn,any malfunction can be caused by a number of reasons.Tractors also often face various difficulties that require the attention of the operator.For example,the front idler wheels will wobble and wobble over time.This is especially true when driving at high speed. Most often, this indicates a weakening of the thrust bearings of the spool hydraulic booster or their significant wear.
To eliminate the malfunction, it is necessary to remove the distributor cover and adjust the thrust bearings. The connection is loosened until the slot coincides with the hole in the worm thread. If the wobble persists, adjustment of the traction joints is required. The adjustment is carried out according to the following scheme:
- Disconnect the safety wire from the tip;
- Use a wrench to wrap the plug;
- Eliminate the gap;
- Carry out control of the cork.
- Wheels wobble occurs when the play in the bearings increases.
Clearance control: Determine the size of the gap after lifting the tractor wheel. Swaying in a plane that is perpendicular to the rotation helps to do this. If turning is difficult, and the clearance is increased,the bearings will have to be adjusted.
For this you need:
- Remove the cap and bolts;
- Loosen the tightening of the nut;
- Rotate the wheel to find obstacles in the form of cuff sticking, bearing breakage or other malfunctions;
- Eliminate the identified problem;
- Tighten the wheel until the resistance increases;
- Unscrew the nut until it coincides with the hole for the cotter pin located in the axle shaft;
- Control the turnover;
- Spin the nut, lubricate and install the cap.
