    Hey Guys, I mow part time, when i get off work i will go and mow 4-5 lawns. Then on Saturday i work my a** off. Sunday is the day i clean and grease, etc. It seems that everytime i grease the spindle bolts they are completely empty. How often should i grease them. And How often do you grease them??

    Thanks!

    Are you using a Lithium grease? There are different grades of grease that break down at different temperatures and this could be what is happening to you.

    If you are using that much grease you might want to check your grease seals on your spindles. If that grease is slinging around on your clients lawns it will leave brown dead spots.....
