TKR, Timken and SKF

Just for comparison purposes I took a peak at that other ball bearing manufacturer on this side of the pond, Timken. Here are both and . Click on them to enlarge and you can move them around as well.

The timeframes are not exactly the same, the SKF one is about 3 years shorter, but by shifting them around you can better compare them anyway.

Both have been on a roll , so to speak : Timken a little more robust than SKF.  Both look like they will get a thorough thrashing soon.             An old Mercedes-Benz diesel that I once had , used Timken bearings in the rear axel, not SKF’s which I found rather surprising. It was second hand so perhaps it was not original equipment. In any case both stocks are clearly listening to the same drummer.
