    I don't know if this subject has been touched upon or not. As far as greasing the fittings on your mower, should you go by the manual or grease the fittings until grease comes out.Can this do more harm than good? Is this over doing it? Also how often should you grease things like caster fittings, spindle fittings etc... As always, thanks for any help.

    I service my lesco 48 wb everyday that I mow.

    I grease spindles, casters, and bushings everyday.

    I service the air filter and sponge once a week.
