    Default Couplers

    Jeff, what is your opinion of the washer couplers with and without the metal insert? Talked to aguy today that said he didn't like the metral inserts. I could kinda sort asee his point. But then again, I feel the non-metal inserts may strip too easily sometimes.

    I am not a fan of the metal inserts on the motor couplers. Some break away from the plastic. Some grind out the tranny or motor shafts. Some get rusted into place. The coupler was suppose to break to protect the rest of the washer....now often they don't.

    WE had discussed that the inserts may defeat the purpose of the coupler to protect the tranny. You definitely have a point about them rusting on the shaft. Had to deal with just recently. May have to change my opinion on this. I figured there must have been a problem with the non-inserts stripping to easy, so the the other ones were marketed.

    They needed a new way to market couplers to get sales back up again.

    JMO!

    May be the case.
