Premium Aftermarket Replacement Parts
The aluminum picker bar has undergone some change over time. Originating as a steel housing, it was quickly replaced by aluminum, which has drastically reduced its weight. As aluminum has less wear resistance, it was soon apparent that a steel sleeve would be needed on the top of the bar neck in order to reduce wear. Also around that time, the top of the bar, where the transition from the area holding the spindle assemblies to the round neck occurs, was strengthened with the inception of the ‘Swept-Neck’ bar. This removed a sharp machined corner stress point, allowing for a much longer life out of the bar and reducing cracking. Over time some additional changes have been made to the lubrication of the bar assemblies, but in spite of these enhancements the physical appearance has been largely unchanged.
The aluminum picker bar assembly used on cotton harvesters performs a vital role in the harvesting action, so it has to be working correctly in order for your machine to be effective, and harvesting the cotton as intended. There are a good number of replacement parts used in the aluminum picker bar assembly, so if you’re having a problem with just one of its components, you can order just that one piece so long as you have the correct part number. We have parts available in any quantity you need, so no matter how small or large your requirement, we will be glad to help you out.
In some cases, a complete kit can be sent to you for assembling the picker bar yourself, and everything that is needed for complete assembly will be provided for you. This includes the bar, drive shaft, bearing sleeve, gears, bearings, pins, thrust washer, retaining ring, spindle assemblies, key, bottom bar bushing, and seals. All the components of the aluminum picker bar assembly are made only of high-quality parts, so you can expect long life from your assembly, assuming it is maintained correctly and not abused. Be sure to maintain the proper level of grease as the lack of lubrication will cause the assembly to seize up and fail.
