Q&A: Which material do you recommend for small construction equipment? Our cast nylon bearings are not lasting as long as we’d like.

By Dave Biering on April 3, 2012

This question was posed to us from a manufacturer of small excavators, the kind you often see in the consumer rental market.  Cast nylon is a good material for farming and construction, but with some drawbacks when it comes to moisture absorption and UV stability.  Depending on where you use them, nylon is good for cable sheaves, but for pivot points, we recommend these materials for top performance.
