Check of cuffs of power shafts

Cuffs – the arrow indicates one of them – on hinges should not have cracks and damages. Dirt and moisture are dangerous to the hinge.

Hinges of power shafts are protected from dampness and dirt by rubber cuffs. You should check regularly attentively, whether lost cuffs of the tightness at the expense of cracks.


    Lift a jack each driving wheel. Slowly turn a shaft and check a cuff on existence of fragile sites and holes. Greasing traces also can testify to it. Whether collars strongly sit? As soon as possible replace the defective dustproof cuffs, differently getting moisture will quickly destroy hinges, and they stand not cheap!
