Heavy Duty Construction
The HDW-3217-12 offers big performance in a narrow format. The 7’3″ (2.2m) width of cut is ideal for mixing soil on restricted flagged traffic road sites. The narrow transport width does not require overwidth permits.
The front single lip Category 4 hitch requires the tractor to have a hammer strap drawbar. The 8’ pole allows spacious room from for tractors running dual wheels on tight turns. The front pole hitch can even be rotated back parallel to the Gang Frame for reduced shipping footprint.
The main frame is formed from ½” high strength steel plate for superior structure design.
The gang support hanger is constructed from ½” high strength steel plate which is formed 5″ x 6-1/4″ structure.
Oil Bath Bearings:
Heavy duty gang beams feature welded gang standards specifically designed with Oil Bath gang bearings for long service life and less downtime in extreme conditions. The larger tapered roller bearings and duo-core type seals are enclosed within a rugged ductile cast iron housing assembly to withstand extreme conditions. A heavy-duty steel rock guard plate protects the housing assembly. Competitive models with greaseable bearings are more susceptible to seal damage and shorter service life due to over greasing.
Made from ductile cast, the spools offer superior durability against rocks. The ductile castings have thicker sidewalls than any fabricated spools on the market. Many competitors add weight exclusively to the main frame in order to increase mass for better blade penetration. Conversely, our ductile cast spools provide the additional weight where it is needed most – centered right over the bearings. This dramatically reduces bearing side loads when operating on uneven ground as compared to competitive models that put the weight above the gang. The HDW-3217-12 ductile cast spools are machined on both ends to provide the perfect fit to the disc blade. This provides the greatest clamping force between all surfaces.
