Rod End Bearings

Our rod ends are manufactured explicitly manufactured for industrial and agricultural applications, made from premium grades of carbon steel and precision high-performance bearings; our rod ends are designed for durability and performance. The origin of rod end bearings dates back to World War II, when they were discovered on fighter planes as a component for controlling the aircraft's control systems. In today's times, rod ends are used in many industrial and agricultural applications such as; construction equipment, plant machinery, ag equipment, and more! We supply both right-hand and left-hand rod ends, male and female configurations, and with an optional re-lube port. Our rod ends are engineered and made to be used in very dynamic applications ranging from light-duty to extreme duty; we do not supply rod ends for automotive applications, including recreational vehicles. Design-wise rod ends consist of an eye-shaped head with an integral shank that creates a solid housing for a bearing. For additional information or to get a quote on rod end bearings, contact our customer support team, and we will be happy to assist you!

HF Series Rod Ends

HF series precision rod end bearings are a three-piece construction that utilizes steel on bronze contact for lubricity. A rod end bearing utilizing steel on bronze configuration provides smoother operation and extended dynamic working life. HF series rod ends are found in applications such as; precision machinery, industrial equipment, agricultural equipment, construction equipment, and more. More specifically, these rod ends feature 52100 hard chrome-plated balls with sintered oil-impregnated bronze races that are housed within a high-strength carbon steel zinc-plated housing. HF rod ends are available in right-hand and left-hand configurations with an optional re-lube design (G suffix) and are made to standard industry dimensions for direct interchangeability with other brands.

CF Series Rod Ends

CF series rod ends are a female 2-piece metal-on-metal construction that offers the most economical design for various light to heavy-duty motion transfer applications. CF series bearings are utilized in applications such as construction equipment, industrial equipment, and agricultural equipment. More specifically, our CF series rod end bearings feature 52100 hard chrome plated balls encased within a carbon steel zinc plated housing for ultimate durability at an economical price point. We supply this series of rod ends as left-hand or right-hand, with or without stud ("S" suffix = with stud), and in a maintenance-free PTFE lined configuration ("T" suffix = maintenance-free) for ultimate application adaptability. They are also manufactured to industry standard dimensions, meaning they directly interchange with other brands!
