Re: How often do I need to replace my cutlass bearing?

A friend who is responsible for tug repair with a large towing company told me that they replace the cutlass bearing every time a tug is hauled. The cost of the bearing is so cheap compared to the cost of the haul that it doesn't make sense to not change the cutlass bearing. On the other hand, he undoubtedly factors in loss of use when analyzing the economics. You may not.
