Redco S.N. Bearing inserts were originally designed as a short-term replacement for standard cast iron housings. But made from durable Redco 750 polyurethane our customers have taken these inserts to be a permanent solution now at many sawmills. The bearing inserts perform better than the iron and are quick and relatively inexpensive to replace. Also, unlike most of solutions that are manufactured as required, we usually carry the most common bearing inserts in stock. Originally, this was because the inserts were intended to be a part that would need to be purchased quickly to reduce downtime; however, our customers do appreciate the next day shipment they get many times with the inserts. The bearing inserts are a floating bearing and a locking device is required.
