    Bearing Housing "MADE IN CHINA"

    I just got done mowing yesterday and had disconnected the MMM to blow off the grass.
    After blowing around the bearing housings, I noticed the "MADE IN CHINA" on the aluminum
    housing. I have to say I was disappointed in this.. I was hoping JD would cheapen and add China made
    parts..Anyone else noticed other items on their John Deere that are "MADE IN CHINA"?

    Don't look at you loader mounts!

    Yes, it is unfortunate but it is a "global economy" as they say...

    I'm not surprised but i could have gone all day without knowing that and been happy. Long as it works I guess.
    If we avoided all things made in China these days I think we would end up living in a stick hut with nothing in it and walking to work. For what its worth, I think it's the manufacturers spec that determines the quality control of the product not just where it is manufactured.

    then John Deere had best get better specs, the sealed bearings on the 54" snowblower leak grease and don't last.

    Not only the end users spec, but also the end users QA process.

    Spec all you want, but you better inspect!

    This is what came on a brand new 47" JD snowblower that the dealer said was fine.. Even with the super duper intergalactic warrantee I ended up changing out this part, dealer would not.. The blower never even saw snow yet, it was run just to be tested after being installed for the first time.

    The impeller was against the housing and you can see the wear, but that was okay,, Ya sure it was, and the second picture shows the abuse from the factory and notice the name on the bearing. Still don't know why only half of the flange was wearing?? The eccentric collar was not engaged either and if you zoom up the image you can see the inner race of the bearing was wearing irregularly because the shaft was spinning inside the race.. Great stuff made in China.. Jeff

    Yes, but in China they would make the frame out of 6" Poplar. Everywhere else they would use 6" treated Oak. It's made of wood and to the correct dimensions, right?
