Question and Answers


grease inside gear case is like molasas. the grease i was sent from you is like wheel bearing grease. 917299560 Craftsman Rear tine tiller with counter rotating tines


Thank you for your question.


I am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. Originally, the gear case was filled with thick grease. What happens is over the years the gear case will get moisture inside of it. Then when you use it the grease will heat up and mix the water with the grease. After years of this, the grease will thin out and run like molasses. The grease you were sent is the correct lubricant for your model.


I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.


Thank you for using Manage my life.
