HELLO, I was wondering if anyone had part numbers for the bearings with collars on the ez rake model that fits the estate keeper? I was changing out all of the tines and noticed that the bearings on each end of the tine shaft are a bit worn out. During disassembly I ran into a few problems, first the set screws holding the bearings are stuck solid, some penetrating oil and patience fixed this problem, next was the drive sprocket, it seems to be rusted on and its location between two steel plates leaves me unable to use a puller or even get a good angle on it for some old fashion hammer negotiations! I will work this out eventually but I would like to source the parts so that when this finally breaks free I can reassemble and get back to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance. Eric.

Give the guys at Buffalo Bearing a call. If you can get the part number from the new company, they'll be able to cross reference for you and get you a much less expensive, but quality bearing. I deal with those guys all the time, they're great people that go above and beyond expectations. Their number is (716) 874-1720.

Thanks for the replies, I know about bluebird but I don't know the model number of the rake that was adapted to the estate keeper. On their website they don't have a model that is powered off of the PTO and I just didn't want to buy the bearings without knowing if the same parts were used in all of their rakes. Anyone know the model number that was used for this application? Thanks.

I built a pusher out of a few bolts washers and nuts and finally after two days of soaking and working on it this combination paid off! One set screw left on a bearing collar and this dethatcher will be ready for some corrosion work and reasembly. I have broklen more allen wrenches on this tiny set screw than I care to admit. I hope to be using this attatchment soon!
