Lubing Old Cultivator Bars

Postby Rocket Man » Sat Apr 01, 2017 1:09 pm

So I have an old Super C here with not seized but hard to move tool bars.
I was going to service them and the cubs bars and was wondering what should I lube these old tool bar joints with..
Is there anything 'I should start with for the Super C and not do to the Cub,
excited for my new year and added horsepower and size with the Super c
it will set up to match the cub row width.
I paid $900 with full toolbars sidedresser and 12 volt.
hell cost me 250 to haul back though.

thanks

I would go with 30 weight motor oil (or whatever similar you already have in an oiler). I think I would not go with a heavy grease as it will hold onto a lot of dirt and grit. When you squirt oil on, it may flush some grit out.

If you have sandy soil, you may want to just leave the joints dry. If you need to get them working better, use one of the light spray oils like WD-40 then let them run dry.

These are just my thoughts, others may have different ideas.
