- EVERY TEN HOURS
Auger Shaft - Using a hand grease gun, lubricate the
auger shaft zerk fittings (See A, FIG, 2) every ten (10)
operating hours. Each time a shear bolt is replaced
(See To Replace Auger Shear Bolt paragraph in
the Service & Adjustments eectlon of this manual),
the auger shaft MUST be greased.
For storage or when replacing shear bolts, remove
shear bolts and lubricate auger shaft zerks. Rotate
augers several times on the ._haft and reinstall the
Position speed selector lever in first gear.
Place a coin or (a shim of equal thickness) between
the rubber friction whee= and disc drive plate to pre-
vent friction wheel contacting the friction disc.
Disc Drive Plate - Using a hand grease gun, lubricate
with a Hi Temp EP M oly grease, zerk located beneath
the disc drive plate (See FIG. 3 inset) every 25 hours
and at the end of the season and/or before storage. To
grease zerk, turn disc drive plate clockwise by hand
until zerk is clearly visible at front center. DO NOT
overfill or allow grease to come in contact with the disc
drive plate or friction wheel or damage will result. Fill
zerk only until grease becomes visible below bearing
assembly located under grease zerk. See Lubrication
Chart in this seCtion.
Remove coin and ensure that a gap
exists between friction wheel and disc drive plate.
NOTE: Clean all excess grease found on friction disc
CAUTION: Do not allow grease to contact friction
wheel and disc drive plate.
Remove both wheels, grease (any automotive
grease) both axles (See FIG. 1) and replace wheels.
Do this at least once a year and/or prior to storage.
