Warning! Front wheel spindles are weak

Recommended Posts

Power Max and AC 620 front spindles tend to break without warning. This can be a real hazard even without a front loader on the tractor. I posted an add on the old web site last May for an improved spindle. I had more than 20 responses from people with spindle problems. I am offering my improved spindle at about the same price as the factory spindle, ( if one can be found) So price should not be an issiue. If a factory replacement is found and used, it will also break in a short time because they have not solved the original problem. I have been surprised that no one has ordered a new spindle from me. I fear that some people are just welding the old one back together. Since the steel is crystalized at the weld points, a rewelded spindle will break again even faster that the factory unit.
