Hi,

I also recently boutght a 5' disc- I suspect it is a ford tho someone painted it green and stuck a deere decal on it. Anyway, the discs ride on shafts or axles(obviously) that pass through blocks, which have zerks in em. There;s some wobble in the blocks- are these bearings - or did they sued to be? How are the axles on discs usually mounted? just a bushing?, roller bearings, ball bearings.... want to know what to expect when I open these up.

thanks. It disced just fine as is, by the way, just made a racket.

Sounds like they are boxings. I have a 6 ft. disc made by Howse that has those. Each half has its own zerk. Need to be greased each time disk is used. You can go to Howse website and they have exploded views of their disks that show thes bearings.

when I worked on a farm they had a 10' foot Dunham disk that had wooden bearings. We greased them twice a day and sometimes three times if we ran late at night.
Most disks should be greased at least twice in 8 hours use.

Our disc is a krause and it has roller bearings that the shaft runs through. I know our old deere disc was also roller bearings.
