Columbia Eagle Lube Question

Post by Dave D »

Do you guys put any oil on the teeth of the gears? I hate to do that since it is open to dust, etc.
What do you all use?

Lubrication is always a better answer than having dry metal on dry metal. Is the unit going to be subjected to a dirty environment? If so then it will have to be cleaned periodically

Thanks, Paul. I am leaning toward Super Lube oil, which is synthetic.

I always keep the lid on and encourage others to do the same.
