    hi, I just bought a new tthp 36" and have a few questions. While going through the operators manual and greasing the mower I came across this. In the manual on page 29 under the grease lubrication chart it says "No. 4 & 6 (idler arm pivots) disassemble and grease once a month under no load condition."
    Is it really necessary to disassemble them that often? wouldn't just pumping fresh grease into them be good? the front one looks easy enough to get to, but how do you get to the back one for disassembly and what would the procedure be? thanks!

    Yard Sloth,

    I deally no you should not need to disassemble the idler pivot. It is however a good idea to remove the belt tension and spring once per month and then grease the pivot. After greaseing it's also a good idea to work the idler back and forth a few times. These procedures help ensure that the grease works it's way completely around the pivot. The put the spring back on and the belt and you're ready to go.
