    How often to grease the 1025r

    Just switched to "Winter" Mode (BH/FEL off, Blower On), and wondered how often I should grease the tractor itself. Meaning the steering, Front Driveshaft, and the Shaft from the Engine to Transmission.

    I know you can't really grease too often, but how many hours would be a guideline for greasing. I did it all in the spring, along with the oil change, and only put on about 40 hours since.

    The steering and driveshaft aren't a big deal, but that shaft from the engine to transmission is a PITA.

    Thanks!

    I guess the manual would have been a good starting point

    I find the spousal early warning system works well for deciding when to grease the tractor. You may hear the following alarms;

    Honey, we should rearrange the living room furniture
    The bachelorette is on in a few minutes
    My girlfriends are coming over for book club
    Since we are both off, lets go shopping together

    On hearing those alarms you should suddenly remember an urgent need to protect your investment from (inclement weather, corrosion, squirrel damage, imminent muffler bearing seizure) all of which can only be solved by 'greasing the tractor'

    I would either go broke on tubes of grease or my grease gun would explode.

    Whoa there... you are not supposed to actually grease the tractor, you are supposed to take your phone out to the shed, fire up tapatalk, and hang out on GTT
