Hello..... and Help!

Hello, new member here and straight in with a plea for advice/guidance!
Im currently working on a Qualcast Super Panther and I’m after some replacement cutting reel ball bearings/potentially a new housing with the felt  – can any one confirm thats correct and maybe point me in the right direction?

Ive pulled out the broken bearings but it really does seem like id be able to buy new ones and fit them without breaking them straight away.....
I have searched high and low on the Internet and i cant seem to find any advice for this or the replacement housing.


Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks all

Illustrated Parts list for Super Panther


I hope that may be of use. The part numbers have probably be changed a couple of times but if you contact Jon Cruse of the Hailsham Mower Centre he will probably be able to recognise them.

It's years since I had one apart but I recollect that the ball races are slightly lighter weight that the similar looking ones used in the more recent machines but Jon will know. The seals look very similar to the ones used until recently on the Electric Punches  (Punch EP) but I cant cross reference it to confirm, but again, Jon Cruse is your man.

Edit. If ,in the meantime you want to get the machine up and running, I’d just stick the balls back in with plenty of thick grease and once assembled the cones will hold them in place in the cages.
