Why Choose the Barone Care-Free™ Compaction Wheel?

We shoulder the load

Just as wheel compaction is superior to vibratory compaction, the Barone Care-Free™ compaction wheel offers significant advantages compared to our competitors' wheels. Our PROPRIETARY design for the journal bearing/lubrication system allows for trouble-free compaction job after job, year after year. This is why Barone Care-free compaction wheels come with an exclusive five-year warranty. They are zero-maintenance, lubricated for a lifetime.

Materials have changed, but the science of bearings has not

Available materials have improved but the science of bearings has changed very little. Bearing selection is part engineering and part educated common sense. Because the compaction wheel is a heavy loading, slow speed, start, stop, reverse operation, the journal bearing is the very best choice.

Journal bearings make the Barone Care-Free compaction wheel one of the best, longest lasting wheels available for compacting soil and dirt in trenches after excavation and installation of utilities.

Simple, long-lived bearings mean a long-lived compaction wheel

A journal (sleeve) bearing is a simple device for supporting the shaft while it rotates. It is the oldest bearing device known to man. The concept has survived because these bearings are survivors. The aluminum/bronze sleeve equalizes the load over the entire shaft area under the bearing. A thin, full-cylindrical film of lubrication fills the space between the bearing and shaft protecting each.

The journal bearing itself has no moving parts. It does not fail suddenly or catastrophically. With proper lubrication, wear is very gradual. The bearing will continue to operate even after considerable wear has occurred. Wear in the Barone Care-Free™ Compaction Wheel is minimized by our careful selection of a lubricant that provides maximum lubrication over the widest range of temperature changes. This lubricant is life-time sealed into our bearing, enabling you to forget about lubricating your Care-Free Compaction Wheel.

Roller, needle and ball (called antifriction) bearings were developed for higher speed, more predictable load applications. This is what the majority of our competitors use in their compaction wheels, and it's why theirs don't last as long. Instead of spreading the load over a large area like our journal bearings do, they concentrate the load, squeezing out the necessary lubrication under peak loads. When you're busy and don't have time to lubricate it regularly or you simply forget, it's life is shortened further. Any failure means lots of loose parts in a trench full of dirt. You can't afford down-time when you're trying to stay on schedule. Barone Care-Free compaction wheels have made their name in the trenches so you can operate without any glitches.
