Greasing Trimmers

I grease our trimmer head gears each month. After talking with some other owners, they say,&quot;Grease my Trimmer&quot;? I realize it depends on if your part time or full time how often you grease, but pull that plug out and pump them full. I just wanted you all to be aware they need grease. If you didn't know about this before, you do now.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

Eric, you reckon that might be why mine is making a whining noise? Sounds like it has a Pete Jackson gear drive in it!<p>Homer

Homer,<p>I reckon that your trimmer has the &quot;noisy&quot; Pete drive opposed to the &quot;quiet&quot; gear drive. :) They actually make a quieter gear drive now.

You take out the plug in the gear box with a 1/2&quot; wrench and hold the end of the grease gun over the hole real tight and start pumping till it won't hold anymore.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
