The Golden Rule that applies to any lawn mowing, tractor unit, and other types of units that bush hog through weeds and scrub brush with ease will always be as listed below.
· Bearings = Grease
· Gears = Oil
One of the most common issues, with a Land Pride Finish Mower, that we here at this Land Pride Parts blog site come across and most frequently, is the blown seal issue in the gearbox. If you happen to be losing a large amount of oil, you will need to check the seal first. In this way, you will save yourself a great deal of hard-earned money and time off the mower! That can be time and money better served doing just about anything else.
Seal Issues and Inspections
The best way to check for a blown or faulty seal is to physically inspect the unit. If you see any amount (non-split while filling) oil, then you need to crack open the gearbox and do a thorough inspection of the seal. If you notice cracks or a raised lip, it is best to go ahead and replace the seal while you are changing out the oil.
