A number of sealed bearings are used on your Kinze
planter to provide trouble free operation. These are

lubricated for life and not serviceable.
Lubricate all transmission and drive chains daily with
a high quality chain lubricant. Extreme operating
conditions such as dirt, temperature, or speed
may require more frequent lubrication. If a chain

washed in solvent to loosen and remove dirt from
joints. Soak chain in oil so lubricant can penetrate
between rollers and bushings.
