    I just bought a used Snapper 26" high wheel WB and I can't find instructions/specifications anywhere regarding the type of lubricant to use for the differential gearbox. There is a differential gearbox with a 1/2" plastic plug on top. I need to know what type of lubricant to use and how much. Please help.

    Thanks

    If I'm am not mistaken, Snapper uses a "special" grease in that gear box. You can buy it from a Snapper dealer. It it something close to a "00" grease.

    Thanks SDWally. I was also told by Snapper to use 00 grease.
