Are you looking to improve your vibratory equipment performance? Replacing worn stabilizer legs can be a very effective way of increasing the efficiency of a vibratory unit. Doing so will decrease operating costs and provide you with a positive impact on available uptime and reduce the unexpected downtime of your equipment.
 
General Kinematics premium aluminum stabilizer legs outlast and outperform other stabilizers. The natural properties of aluminum rapidly conduct heat away from the leg bushing, allowing aluminum legs to run 20 or more degrees cooler than steel fabricated or cast legs. This is important, as the reduced temperature of  the aluminum leg is proven to significantly increase the life of the bushing over those found in steel legs. This increased bushing life means more uptime, longer component life, and reduction in repair costs which puts more money to your bottom line. Should the bushings need replacement, GK stabilizer bushings are easily replaceable, extending life and reducing overall maintenance costs.
 
GK now carries vibratory stabilizer / rocker legs for other brands of vibratory equipment, which are listed on the chart below. Should you have a stabilizer not listed, no problem! Contact your GK parts specialist and we will create a stabilizer for your application that offers improved performance and a longer service life.
