Does anyone own 2005 Gravely Z and know where are zerk fittings on unit? I just got 152 Z, and I can not find a single zerk fitting to lubricate. The manual said repacking two caster pivot @ 400 hrs, and applying oil at all pivot points & pin connections @ 50 hrs...I want to know what oil they talking about? Can we use wd 40 to spray into caster wheel bearings & axle...and those belt pulleys?

BTW, 152 z is awesome and sweet.

Thank you.

MTR, I have the 34z and there is only one fitting on the brake system. As I remember the rest of the service is what you describe. Really nothing. THe spindles are not greasable.

In my manual page 19, only one section mentioned lubricating machine and they don't even say anything about brake system, including diagram showing ONLY two things to do...1st repacking two caster, and 2nd apply oil at pivot and pin connections.
Wow...no more grease hell pia like Lesco, eXmark and Toro or Scag...fine with me.
