    Holy cow this is a confusing question. Not only is it worded poorly but you are using chat lingo in it.

    Can you re-read it and re-post it unless someone else understands it and can answer. I cannot help at this point.

    Good Luck,

    Just check the grease yourself, and at the end of the week check the grease in the gearbox again. The gearbox should be cheked every week
    for now on. Tamadrummer would not be confused if he was a Ludwig drummer:)

    to clear the thread up for TAMA, my basic question is that when you buy a 21 inch toro heavy duty from a dealer that has set it up before you buy it, is it necessary to greese all the parts that need to be greesed before you start to use it to cut lawns. and i wonder if it is necessary to greese everything once a week if i only have 9 lawns currently. sorry about the confussion.

    No it should not be necessary to grease until the hours of operation have run out or if you deem it necessary to grease earlier. Just do not grease too much or you can ruin seals on the gearbox or pivot arms.

    Just add what the manual tells you to add at the intervals that are recommended and you should be good to go.

    Toro says to grease pivot arms every 25 hours and input shaft of the transmission every 100 hours.

    Most dealers or should I say quality dealer will set up the mower before you come in to pick it up. They will grease it and make sure all the cables are set and ready to go. I sharpen blades and grease weekly even though it may not need much but better to be safe than sorry.
