Blown Bearings

The Mess of Bearing Failure on a 30+ Year Old Baler

Blown Bearings

Baler bearing blown,
Pickup won't turn.
Hay waits in the field,
Work to be done.

Mechanic hat on,
One of many I wear.
Teething each year,
Tests what sat.

When bearings fail,
Movement grinds to halt.
Forced repairs,
Mandatory down time.

As life wears,
Presence requires care.
Maintenance required,
Or seize up uninspired.
