  • Is this an enviro??

    Recently I have been removing bushings from different parts om my machines that somewhat resemble enviro bushings. They are green like enviros on the area that is pressed in (where it dosent come into contact with a moving part) but the area that the shaft turns in, it turns a pinkish color. Another trait is that when they break (as the often do when driving them out) they have a quality more like fiberglass, similar to the fiber pannels when they break. My question is, are these just worn Enviros? Or they some other type of non metalic busing that I have not yet heard of???

    Sounds like enviros to me. Cant think of anything else like that. But then I quit using them after the first one I tryed.

      Hi Jim, they don't sound like Enviros to me. If you don't mind could I create a call tag and have one picked up to make sure?

      Thanks

        Jim,

        I'll bet a week salary you're talking about the front roller support bushings.

        They were from Stahl's. Just before Enviro's came out (or at least just before I became aware of them) Stahl's was selling those. As soon as we tried them, we loved them so much that we ordered enough for most, if not all of the house. You'll probably find them in most the FR supports.

          Yes, thats them. I dont mind them, as long as they dont need to be replaced every 2 years. lol, I have been puting in enviros as I remove them, and pits are all comming apart this summer. So if there not enviros, they will be...

          Ed...My pleasure. however, I think Dutch just solved the mystery. If ya want to take a look at one, be my guest. I will let Smokie know that one may be on the way (call tag) It may be a few days before I have another one out, the others hit the can as fast as I could get them there...

              I'll verify the source being Stahl's also. Just a quick word about the front roller support Enviros:
              Within the bore of the bracket, be sure to file down the grease fitting hole with a burr or small grinding wheel before installing any plastic bushing, to avoid "collapsing" the bushing at that point.
