Howdy....I found a bad track roller on my Kom. D21P. Took it off and looks like the innards are shot, but all else looks good. Are they rebuildable? They all have a 1/8" pipe plug in the end of the shaft. Does anyone install a grease zert and give 'em a shot of grease now and then? Will this screw up a roller that is "pre lubed and sealed"? They are Berco rollers. The bad one is front left....do the front ones generally go out first? Lots of questions...ha. Can anyone recommend a place to buy a replacement (with bolts)?
Thanks....Pete in MS

Welcome to the club Pete. Bearings are sealed for life or until the seal goes, which ever comes first. They are greasable thru the plug hole, would contact Berco and see what grease they recommend. If you have the bearing and seal numbers, can get them thru a good bearing parts house. Bolts, unless some special type, buy grade 8 some where local. When you reassemble it, you will pack it with grease. You could install a zerk for greasing only and replace with the plug when it is filled. I would contact Berco and have them send me any info or parts break downs they have. After you fix the first one, the second is easier. Been busy, getting dry up here, irrigation pivots running on the river bottom ground, one friend is using 2,000 of deisel a week on 8 systems. Bob LXJ

Hi Bob
Thanks for the info. Man, that"s alot of diesel the fellow uses...I"d hate to be paying for it...ha.
If Berco has a rebuild kit, I"ll get it and a new roller also...fix the old one for a spare.
They"re not open on Sat,... I called North Am. Track...guess they are the ones to call for Berco ...they are in SC, I think. I had to heat the bolts a while for them to come loose. Think I bent my pull handle...ha ha. Don"t know if I can get metric bolts the exact size I need locally, so will ask roller sales if they got "em. Was on radio this AM and called you.
Been missing a lot of days....too tempting to be outside doing something. The little dozer has been doing lots of work around here. Very happy with it if it holds together ! Me and the brother welded on it for 2 or three days and all running good but the roller.

Thanks again
Pete

Pete. If they are metric let me know the length and size. there is a surplus bolt operation near me and know him well. All new stock and priced by the pound.

Thanks on the bolts, Bob. A 21mm socket fits 'em.
Can check the length. I'll check the heavy truck place near here first. They have some metric stuff. Shipping stuff is a pain!!! ha.
If I have a problem locating some, I will tell you. Heck, all I need at present is 4. I am gonna order a roller tomorrow AM and they should know what bolt fits and have 'em....one would think. At any rate, I will bring the bolt to the truck place tomorrow and they can tell me the size....looks like about 1/2" dia and mebbe 4" long. How's your machines running?

The "lifetime lubricated" rollers on my Cats (Berco)all use 30wt engine oil and require a special tool to fill them. Grease is not recommended and will not fill the internal cavities that hold the lubrication oil.
