Quick tips

  • If it's in the dirt, you should grease it daily. For example, the grease zerks on the end of the pins near your bucket.
  • Before greasing, ensure your machine is parked on level ground with the linkage extended all the way – this allows you to perform your daily greasing tasks without having to reposition your machine
  • Too much grease will not hurt your machine, but it will make it look messy
  • Put enough grease in until you see it bubble out of the joint – this will push the dirt out and keep the machine performing optimally
