Quoting Trimmer Lugs

Posted by on August 28, 2017

UHMW trimmer lugs are one of the most common plastic applications in sawmills. But quotes tend to be delayed when the request is just for “20 trimmer lugs, P & D please.”. All trimmer lugs are not created equal!

Most are made from natural (white) UHMW polyethylene; however, that’s there the ‘standard’ of this part ends. We need to know the length, the outer diameter, and whether the lug is counterbored on one or both sides. We also need to know the diameter of the pin that goes in the center.

Usually the pin has a 1″ diameter but we don’t want to make assumptions. Knowing the quantity is critical to any quote as well: the higher the quantity, the more money you can save. We can also supply the steel pins if necessary but this is only on request and we need to be asked to do so. Average lead time to ship an order is 2-3 weeks and it’s important to know that trimmer lugs are not kept ‘on the shelf’. They are manufactured to-order.
