C-22 mule drive shafting as loader bucket pins?

Postby Matt Kirsch » Thu Mar 11, 2021 9:54 pm

I have a C-22 mule drive shaft that has deep gouges where the bearings failed, so it's no good as a mule drive shaft.

It's 1-1/8" just what I need for loader bucket pins. Figured you guys might have an idea what kind of material it's made from.

I could only guess but shafts, such as that one, are generally not a real hard material, not sure about you bucket pins, though. It's my guess that it will work just fine. You're only out a little time to give it a try. If I had an application needing 1 1/8" pins, I wouldn't hesitate a bit, it's like free stock.

The mower shaft could be repaired! The shaft is more than likely soft!

Bucket pins are probably case hardened at a minimum.
(Good ones anyhow)

Oh it can certainly be repaired, but they're hardly rare or irreplaceable.

Sounds like they might be too soft for my needs. I'll have to pull a genuine bucket pin and give both a file test.
