Sight glass hubcaps | Now available for Challenger, John Deere and Quadtrac
Brian Isaac has expanded his line of sight glass hubcaps.
He’s added eight new sight glass units to fit all John Deere and Challenger rubber tracked tractors, as well as for the larger Case Quadtrac.
Isaac’s Leabank Lubeview Sightglass Hubcaps came into the market in 2007, but were then designed only for Case Quadtrak.
The expanded lines mean farmers should now be able to find sight glass hubcaps for any of the big three North American rubber tracked tractors for less than the price of a new hub assembly.
The shatterproof clear borosilicate glass allows operators to check oil levels in all hubs without moving the tractor to get the hub’s plug in the up position.
The Quad has two hubcap part numbers for the STX and two more for the 9000 series.
The price is $2,024 for a complete set of 40 for the STX and $2,040 for the 9000 series.
All Deere tractors require 20 hubcaps. There are two sizes for the 9530T, costing $936 for the complete set. The 9400T has two other sizes, with a cost of $944 for the complete set.
The Challenger MT800 has 20 hubcaps, in two sizes, costing $928 for a set. The MT700 has only 16 caps, also in two sizes, costing $760.
“You still have to crawl around under the tractor to check all the oil levels, but it should only take a few minutes now,” Isaac said.
