Despite a high volume of orders in recent days, our amazing shipping team continues to ship orders out quickly. Today we're shipping orders placed March 28. Our customer service department remains open, but due to higher call and email volume, our response time has slowed. If you’re unable to reach us by phone, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Our Hampton store is temporarily closed. We greatly appreciate your business as we do our very best to serve you during this challenging time!
"I have never before received such prompt service when ordering any item from a company. I placed my order late in the afternoon and had exactly what I ordered in my mailbox less than 48 hours later. It was a pleasure doing business with you." — Sue Belair, WI
This is the replaceable shear coupler for the Maverick 5501 grinder. (The manufacturer calls it the "Feed Screw Gear", but it is not actually a gear.) Please note that if your Maverick 5501 grinder was purchased before 2010, this shear coupler may not fit your grinder.
This replaceable part is designed to break if you encounter things that are too hard for the grinder, to protect the grinder from more extensive damage. One of these is included in the 5501 grinder, and a spare is also included. We recommend keeping at least one or two spares on hand to avoid downtime.
When purchased alone, this item ships by First Class U.S. Mail for $3.99 shipping/handling. Please see the Shipping information below for details.

"Pleasant Hill Grain is a top notch company. You process orders quickly without error and also resolve returns to the customer's satisfaction. Other companies I've ordered from online don't measure up to Pleasant Hill Grain!" — Pat Perusse, MD
