    Has anyone tried the new Rhino pads... how do they stand up against the OE? Price seems great compared, but if they're junk let me know. Thanks

    I put them on my 210i, probably about 500 hours ago. So far so good, they are wearing identical to the oem's. From what I understand from what our rep told us, they are made from the exact same material as the factory, they are jusy made here in the states, hence the cheaper price.

    The Ultimate Pads from Kennametal come with a 2000 hour warranty.

    We installed Tufpads from BLS on our last two mills that needed pads. So far they seem to be holding up well. Not a fan with the Kennametal pads. Tried them in the past and they didn't hold up. 2000 hour warranty is also pro-rated.
