    I carry a grease gun on the trailer & use it when things seem to need it. About every 2 or three days

    I try and grease the front casters on my walk behind every day. They need it more then anything. Other then that, everything else gets it ones a week or so.

    Not often enough.

    Finding time for equipment maintenance has been a real b!tch lately. I'm swamped.
