    Are the spindles on the 2002 Charoits sealed or greasable?

    SMMTNS,
    Thank you for your email.

    We at Great Dane use a greasable sealed spindle bearing assembly on our entire product line. The benefit is to keep moisture from condensation out of the cavity between the top and bottom bearing.

    Best Regards,

    Bill

    Bill,

    Thanks for the quick reply. What is the frequency of lubrication and type of grease, since there is a heat issue? How much lubrication is to much? I did not find this info in the operators manual.

    Please use an all purpose grease. Each spindle should be greased every 2 weeks, if the machine is being used heavy on a daily basis. Do not worry about over-greasing the spindle since there is a weep hole to expel the excess grease. My recommendation is to pump grease into the spindle assembly till you see grease ooze out the weep hole.

    Thanks again for your email!!!

    Bill
