Barford dumper clutch

Since Barford site dumpers went into administration in 2010, PES have managed to keep supplying parts for the Barford dumper range by a mixture of manufacturing parts using the original Barford suppliers or my cross referring them to a Thwaites, Benford, Terex, Terex/JCB or Mecalac parts. Although unable to supply Barford chassis, Barford skips or any major fabricated items, with over £750000 of dumper parts in stock PES have managed to keep customers Barford dumper fleets working on site.

PES supply clutches for the Barford SX and Barford SXR range of dumpers. These are new heavy-duty clutches not reconditioned or light-duty, we stopped supplying reconditioned clutches years ago as we found the early failure rate was too high. For your Barford SX and SXR range of dumpers we supply two different types in three different sizes dependent on age and model of the dumper. Apart from the size, which is measured by the diameter of the clutch disc not the spring- loaded cover plate, the difference between the two types is the carbon thrust release bearing on one and the metal bearing type release bearing on the other.  Generally any Barford SX or Barford SXR with a Deutz, Lister Petter or Perkins engine will have an 8 inch or 9 inch clutch with a carbon thrust release bearing and any Barford SX or Barford SXR with a Kubota engine will be a 9.5 inch clutch with a metal bearing type release bearing.

When fitting a new clutch to your dumper always be aware of the dangers of clutch dust, some older clutches still had asbestos in them and always check that there is free play on the pedal after fitting. If there is no freeplay it means the clutch will always be slightly dragging and fail quickly and always discourage drivers from driving with their foot on the pedal as again it makes the clutch drag.
