    Guys, Maybe one of you bobcat owners can give me some info. I purchased a used 2004 Bobcat 36" walkbehind. I brought it home and set in servicing it and changing all the belts and greasing it. Then i noticed i cannot find any grease fittings on the 2 spindles!! Are these sealed spindles and require no grease? I currently run all scags and they all have grease zerks on the spindles. Maybe i am overlooking them? I checked on the bottom as well and still no grease zerks!! Help me out.
    Thanks:hammerhead: ;)

    i have a bobcat from the mid 80s and it is the same way they have sealed bearings same with my 00 exmark some say the greasable tappered roller bearings are better but i have roughly 1000hrs on the exmark with no problems i dont have a clue what hours are on the bc but im pretty sure they are also original
