JD? corn crib need help with spring.

Postby grunt » Tue Mar 27, 2012 11:01 am

Well my wife landed a corn crib for me at an auction while I was a work. The wood is pretty solid and it has a hydro lift arm underneath it. Other then the mismatched tires it is pretty solid. The problem I have is one of the springs are snapped.
Here is the crib it has JD on the wheel hubs

and here is the busted spring

Now my wife called the IH/case shop and they said for me to bring it in and they would see if they could find a match. I told her that some one on this board might be able to give me a hand. So there you have it. Thanks..
Oh one more thing
Yes.. you did read that my wife buys farm machinery at auctions and does call farm machinery parts store..yep I might keep her. :lol:

If it was mine I'd try to fix it myself first. It doesn't look to be a major undertaking. The way it looks the spring just sets in the lower saddle. If that's the case you should be able to put a jack in between and spread it enough to remove the spring. Then take it to a salvage yard and see if you can match it up with some thing. Even if you just take the spring into the Case/IH dealer for them to try and get a match it will be a lot cheaper. It is possible that the bolt in the leaf spring may have to be removed to separate enough for removal. If that's the case it may be a lot harder to do, because those bolts can get rusted in pretty bad sometimes.

If you have a shop close by that does semis/dump trucks/etc., they may have a used one that you can have.

Barge wagon.

You will need some sort of helper spring on this wagon's set up/running gears, specially if you plan on hauling a considerable amount of weight.

Do it yourself project, replacing the spring. If you can not get an exact match for the spring, might be better to buy a matching pair of springs and replace both.

You all have been very helpfull. It should be fun hunting this thing down. I am not planning to use it for anything too heavy at any given time but I am curious to what the weight rating is... and I will start calling it a corn wagon :wink:

Guessing somewhere between 7 and 10 ton of ear corn would fit in the wagon.

You could measure the wagon to determine it's cubic feet. Divide the cubic feet by 1.25 to determine bushel capacity.
