    Default problems with 10" wheel asemblies on ASV RC-100 rubber track skid steer

    Hi, I posted this same topic in another forum a few days ago, and it was suggested I post it here too because this is where the ASV guys hang out, so here goes...

    I am having persistent problems with bearings going out on the 10" wheel assemblies on my ASV RC-100 skid steer rubber track loader. It seems as though the seal (part #0307-801) that keeps the grease in and the dirt out of the bearing gets eaten away, and then all my grease comes out, resulting in a shot wheel assembly. I have replaced 6 of the 10 10" wheel assemblies on my machine because of this, and the machine only has 1,000 hour on it. It's proving to be very costly and difficult to manage. Can anyone give advice on what the root problem is and what I can do to prevent the bearing from going bad?

    Not really that much you can do with the old seals they suck. Were having good luck with the new style axels with steel face seals instead of rubber ones. I would pull the rest of your axels and change out the rest of the seals we also use a synthetic 90 weight oil in the axels seems to help quite a bit. You could update the undercarriage to the new style axels. really all depends on how many hours you use your machine a year and the conditions you run it in.

    We have the same machine and are having same problem, but ours is end 14" wheel assemblies. We noticed problems with these assemblies at the 1,100 hour mark and now with just under 1500 hours we have stripped both track assemblies for total refitting.We pulled the 3/8" grease fill plugs and inspected interior cavities. Those that showed rust or contamination we disassembled and replaced bearings and seals. Using 80-90 weight rear end grease and seems to work good when filled lying level at the fill point of mid way up axle shaft. We then stand them on end for a day to make certain no grease/oil is weeping out.Same for the 10" wheel assemblies. These wheel assemblies must have been engineered by a very PO'd fellow as they are a real pain to remove the seals, and we/you do not want to make an every Month event in replacing seals-then shot bearings. Another thing that certainly helps extend seal and bearing life is careful inspection everyday for debris in wheel carrier assembly and a thourough high pressure cleaning.
