Have had a heck of a time trying to locate just 960 spindles. The local JD shop doesnt seem to really care that they dont have any and has no idea when they will get some. I have tried online, all over the state, and everywhere. I am not real worried about it, because I know there is a warehouse somewhere with a few million spindles in it with a john deere logo on it waiting till everyone gets real despreate. I heard that deere has bought BCH, the company that makes most all the spindles that we see around here. I would not put it past deere to do something like this but come on.....a cotton picker spindle shortage?!?! If anyone can help please do. Not yet to the point of desperation but a long ways past frustration...........Thanks!
