Husqvarna 128r Trimmer Gear Lubrication

What kind of lubricant should be used for the trimmer gear?

In the process of operation, the mechanical part of the trimmer is loaded by contact forces on the teeth, resistance reactions from adhering grass (sometimes with dirt), dynamic, shock loads due to constantly changing torque. Lubricant for the trimmer gear must fully take into account these features, so the selection of the brand must be strictly individual.

The following factors are taken into account:

  • Manufacturer’s brand. Each brand reasonably focuses on self-made lubricants (you can talk about cheap Chinese products later). This applies to manufacturers such as Husqvarna, Stihl, Huter, Makita, and others. The only exceptions are domestic-made trimmers: for example, the Caliber in the user manual does not indicate the brand of lubricant at all.
  • The viscosity of the lubricant. As you know, all lubricants are divided into three groups. high-viscosity (colloidal systems containing various additives), plastic compounds for universal use and solid lubricants that soften during operation.
  • Good adhesion to the surface of gearbox parts, as a result of which the grease is not squeezed out into the gaps or out of the unit.
  • Intensity of grease consumption by the gearbox. Here you have to rely on your own experience and the recommendations of specialists, since some trimmer manufacturers, relying on the availability of their own service centers, do not give clear recommendations at all regarding the period of operation of the gearbox between two lubrications.

Lubricant consumption also depends on the temperature at which it retains its lubricity. When the gearbox is heated to 40 ° C, it is considered that its operating conditions are satisfactory, and there is sufficient lubrication.

It is believed that there is no universal lubricant for the trimmer gearbox, but this is not entirely true. In fact, a suitable lubricant will be one that contains the following components:

  • Lead-free antiwear additives;
  • Solid lubricants with the presence of graphite or molybdenum disulfide (the latter is preferable, since the lubricity is fully retained for a wide range of shaft revolutions);
  • Only mineral (inorganic!) Oils, highly refined.

These requirements are fully met by Gear Grease OREGON or Champion EP-0 lithium greases, domestic compositions Oleo-Mas, Litol 24, or Azmol 158, as well as those recommended by the manufacturer of a particular trimmer model.

Features of different types of gearboxes

Manufacturers of electric and lawn mowers install various models of gearboxes on their equipment. Usually they differ from each other in the shape and dimensions of the seat, which is made in the form of a circle (the popular diameter is 24, 25.5 and 26mm), a square or an asterisk.

Another difference between gearboxes of Russian, Chinese and European brands is the types of gears. They are conical, worm, spiroid, combined, wave, planetary, cylindrical. Worm gearboxes are commonly used on lawn mowers.

Lubricant selection rules

Many garden tool companies such as Stihl and Husqvarna make their own lubricants for their products. In this case, it is recommended to use just such a product. it is the best way to reduce the wear of equipment. If original lubricant is not available for the trimmer, several factors should be taken into account when choosing a composition:

  • the quality of the brand that produces the lubricant;
  • the viscosity of the composition. this parameter is influenced by the torque of the shaft;
  • adhesion to the surface of the assembly components;
  • consumption of the lubricating coating. take into account the air temperature, the type and volume of work carried out.

Advice! If it is difficult to choose a lubricant, it is better to purchase a universal composition. It usually contains a number of additional components to protect the gearbox and extend the life of the gearbox.

By consistency, lubricants can be liquid and semi-liquid, with m of various additives and additives, as well as plastic and solid. The plastic ones are the most common, and the hard ones represent their original state. The most popular in terms of composition are:

  • graphite lubricants that reduce friction and improve gear movement;
  • lithium compounds with high anti-corrosion properties and additives that reduce metal wear;
  • universal substances containing mineral oils and additives that increase the performance of the gearbox.

The most common lubricants include: Litol-24, Champion EP-0, Azmol 158, as well as the composition of the Stihl company.

Repair and lubrication of the trimmer gear

With frequent, intensive use of lawn mowers, the gearbox may start to warm up or make sounds unusual for its normal operation, such as grinding sounds. This indicates that the mechanism needs to be lubricated. If this is not done in time, then more serious problems will arise (for example, gears will quickly wear out and need to be replaced), up to jamming. Other breakdowns also occur with the transmission. Repair and lubrication of the gearbox can be done independently. for this you just need to familiarize yourself with the features of these works and stock up on some of the available tools.

Breakdown prevention

To avoid breakdowns and subsequent expensive repairs, it is recommended to follow a number of simple rules for using the trimmer and maintaining the gearbox.

  • You need to lubricate this garden tool immediately after purchase. before using it. Usually the manufacturer (for example, Interskol or Huter) applies only a small amount of lubricant, which is sufficient only for running in.
  • At the end of the season or before long-term storage of the trimmer, disassemble the gearbox, check the condition of the bearings and gears, lubricate the assembly.
  • Grease needs to be added after the tool has run for twenty to forty hours. With intense exercise, this time is reduced to twenty hours.
  • It is necessary to change the lubricant to a new one when repairing the structure or before the start of the season.
  • When the gearbox overheats or makes a lot of noise, check for grease. If it is present in sufficient quantity, it is recommended to replace it completely with another.

So, you can repair and lubricate the lawn mowers’ gearbox yourself at home. Adding lubricant is not difficult, a detailed description of this process and recommendations for choosing the right substance can be found in the instruction manual for the tool or on the videos, of which there are many on the Internet. Most gearbox breakdowns are typical for different brands of trimmers, it is quite easy to fix them if you know the correct procedure. And in order to avoid their appearance, it is enough to follow simple operating rules and carry out timely maintenance of the trimmer gearbox.

How to lubricate the trimmer gear?

In the upper part of the body, where the gear block is installed, there is a technological hole, which is plugged with a screw during trimmer operation. This screw is unscrewed, and 1.5. 2 ml of grease is injected into the hole using the spout on the tube. If the lubricant was purchased in a different package, then an ordinary disposable medical syringe is also suitable for this operation.

After that, the screw is reinstalled. This procedure, regardless of the user’s recommendations, should be performed every 10. 15 hours of operation of the trimmer in working mode. Other reasons for updating or replacing the gearbox lubricant are the independent performance of minor routine maintenance (for example, cleaning and flushing the gears of the gearbox before the start of the summer season), repairing the unit, preserving the trimmer for the winter, etc.

If the gear unit is disassembled, it is recommended to completely remove the remnants of the old grease from the surface of the parts, even if it does not have any traces of oxidation and contamination. And only then apply new grease. After applying the lubricant, it is recommended to rotate the shaft several times by hand, and make sure that the lubricant is evenly distributed over all parts of the gearbox.

When lubricating, pay particular attention to the following elements:

  • Flywheel: on its surface, as a rule, grass residues adhere intensively, and thickening herbal juice creates additional resistance.
  • Pawl of the starter coil, which in the process of turning on the drive constantly comes into contact with the grooves on the flywheel. In this case, not only mechanical wear occurs, but also mechanochemical corrosion of the flywheel-dog connection, since the materials of this pair are different (the flywheel is aluminum, and the dog is steel).
  • Bearings, if their seals are worn out, and through them, the remaining grease is squeezed out. In this case, the unit begins to vibrate intensively when loaded. This happens with Chinese-made trimmers, so it is worth thinking in the future about replacing the bearing assembly with a better one, for example, from the Swedish company SKF.

Main gearbox malfunctions and ways to eliminate them

Various breakdowns occur with the gearbox of an electric or gasoline trimmer. The most common of them are presented in the table below. There you can also find the causes of their occurrence and methods of elimination.

Bearings are destroyed due to the use of inappropriate lubricant or due to lack of it. Also, their damage is caused by harsh operating conditions of lawn mowers and the ingress of foreign particles of material (for example, broken metal teeth of mechanical transmissions) due to the fact that the integrity of the anthers is broken.

To remove the bearing, you need to disassemble the gearbox and use a special puller. If not, then you can try to do it with a hammer with a guide. In this case, work should be done carefully so as not to damage the seat. It is not recommended to use the preheating method to shoot the bearing. This is due to the fact that the metal can lose the required performance.

If the knife stops rotating under load or does not stop at all, then this is accompanied by an uncharacteristic sound.

Most gearbox problems can be easily fixed by hand. Replaceable parts are recommended to purchase “native”, intended for the model of lawn mowers.

Removing and Lubricating the Upper Trimmer Shaft

First of all, we remove the lower part of the rod from the coupling, and then disconnect the coupling from the upper part of the rod (here we are talking about the coupling connecting the two halves of the rod).

Trimmer PRORAB-8406 with disconnected clutch and lower part of the bar

Now the most interesting thing: in some videos, like this one, holding the shaft coupling sticking out of the upper part of the rod from below with pliers, they knock it out of the rod with pliers along with the rolling bearing (here we are talking about the coupling connecting the upper and lower shafts). Some lawn mowers with a collapsible bar, as in the video, the coupling connecting the upper and lower shafts is pressed into the rolling bearing.

With our trimmer PRORAB-8406 and others like it, this number will not work. They do not have a rolling bearing, and the coupling (bushing) is an extension of the upper rod shaft. A circlip is installed in the upper part of this shaft, which must first be removed.

The place of attachment of the upper part of the rod to the clutch housing

  • Unscrew the central screw completely. It fixes the top of the rod by partially entering the hole drilled in it. Loosen the side clamping screws and remove the rod from the clutch housing.
  • We push the shaft out of the upper part of the rod towards ourselves, as far as play allows, in order to get to the retaining ring and remove it. A special puller may be needed. Removing the retaining ring.

Retaining ring on the upper shaft of the lawn mower

  • Without the circlip, the upper shaft can be easily removed from the rod from the opposite side. We lubricate it, not forgetting about the slots in the bushings (couplings) on the rod shaft and on the clutch shaft.
  • Put the lubricated shaft in place in the upper part of the rod and fix it with a retaining ring. Insert the rod into the hole in the clutch cover and align the hole on the rod with the threaded hole of the fixing screw.
  • Screw in the retaining screw and secure the upper part of the trimmer bar with the side screws in the clutch cover.
  • We clean the connecting sleeve of the rod from debris and install it from below on the upper part of the rod.

I don’t have a puller, but I use two large paper clips to remove the retaining ring. First, they need to be straightened, on the one hand, make half rings for the fingers, and on the other hand, bend small hooks.

We grab the holes in the retaining ring with the hooks and try to push them apart. With difficulty, but it turns out, and the ring starts to move from its place. If you know another way to remove the circlip without a puller, share in the comments.

In many videos, the masters recommend using grease for the CV joints, this is the best option. In its absence, litol-24 can be used to lubricate the shafts of the lawn mowers, which is oriented to temperatures up to 130 ° C. But grease, which has the worst lubricating properties and works at temperatures up to 70 ° C, is not recommended to be used.

However, if you urgently need to lubricate the shaft of the lawn mower, and there are no suitable materials, then grease or even ordinary engine oil will be better than nothing at all.

Lubrication of the shafts of lawn mowers, trimmers

Dismantling the lawn mower bar (gasoline trimmer) for shaft lubrication using the example of the PRORAB-8406 lawn mower. Removing the shaft from the rod is slightly different than shown in some videos on the internet. Consider when disassembling such devices.

Removing and lubricating the lawn mower’s lower shaft

To remove the shaft from the bottom of the rod, first remove the coil reducer.

Lower trimmer gearbox PRORAB-8406

  • Unscrew the fully central locking screw. On the reverse side of the lower clamping screw, unscrew the nut and unscrew the screw completely to disconnect the coil reducer from the protective casing.
  • Loosen the upper clamping screw and remove the lower part of the shaft from the coil gearbox housing. We take out the lower shaft from the rod from the gearbox side.
  • We clean the shaft from contamination and lubricate it with grease for CV joints or lithol-24, not forgetting to clean and lubricate the coupling (sleeve) with splines in the gearbox.
  • We install the shaft into the bar, and the bar into the lower gear of the lawn mowers and align the hole on the bar with the hole for the central screw. We turn in the central screw. Next, we wrap the lower screw, clamp the lower part of the rod in the gearbox housing with the upper and lower screws and tighten the nut on the back of the lower screw.
  • Add 20-30 ml of grease to the coil reducer through the hole closed with the screw located in the photo on the right.

In the operating instructions for the petrol trimmer PRORAB 8405M, 8406M, it is recommended to lubricate the gearbox with grease or its analogs, in extreme cases, fill in liquid engine oil. Excess oil will leak out as the gearbox does not have seals.

In the user’s manual for the petrol trimmer PRORAB 8402P, 8403P, 8405P, 8406P it is written that engine oil for two-stroke engines can be used as a lubricant for the gearbox. There is no mention of solid oil and its analogues.

In order not to bother, lubricate the lower gear of your lawn mowers with the same grease as the boom shaft, or fill in engine oil.

Lubricant for trimmer gear. How and how to lubricate?

Sometimes, in the midst of an intense mowing operation, your trimmer will start making an unpleasant, grinding noise. This complains about the lack of lubrication, the gearbox is the most heavily loaded unit of the device. And soon these “warnings” may be followed by a jamming of the drive.

Very easy to use trimmer, even a woman can handle it, as it is very light weight and low vibration. After winter, the start is easy, refueled, pumped up and starts almost the first time. And buy the original fishing line right away, it’s a little expensive, but the consumption is minimal.

At the first assembly, do not be zealous with the self-tapping screws of the cross-piece for attaching the control handles, if the tightening is uneven, you can break the thread. Also, a year later, after starting, the engine speed began to disappear. vacuum in the gas tank, removed the mesh in the filling cap, got clogged, and everything works like a clock to this day.

READ  How To Put A Disk On A Video Trimmer

Take it and you will not regret it, I have never met such an unpretentious and light, as well as powerful and cheap mower, the quality is high. All the Chinese and Japanese are falling apart from their neighbors, this one surprisingly plows and plows, already a new coil will soon have to be taken because of the development (6 years, a plot of 40 acres)

Excellent trimmer.
Mows easily and cleanly.
The weight is almost not felt if the straps are well adjusted.
Starts up “with a half kick”.

I bought it for a summer residence. mowing grass along the fence and where it is inconvenient with a wheel mower.
Impressions for six months are only positive.
Weight and comfortable shoulder straps allow even fragile women to work with a trimmer.

There is enough power for 20 acres of my site, and it is also enough to clear the second such neighboring site. The back does not get tired, because light weight. The components and the case are reliable and trustworthy.

I have not encountered any shortcomings yet. There is only a small note. the capacity for gasoline is small, but it is good. But you will rest yourself and give some rest to the equipment, refueling it every 30-50 minutes.

With my plot of 20 acres, I had enough of a hand scythe, so it’s time to choose a good gasoline trimmer. I was interested in this model for its price and size, but I was worried that its power might not be enough. I was worried, in fact, in vain. There are only good impressions and a sense of pride in the right choice. The back does not get tired, the line cuts almost everything, there are no vibrations to the bone, like most other neighboring devices. To properly configure and run the braid, you can watch a video on the Internet, there are a lot of them for this model. A little more than a liter of the mixture and a day of work is enough to clean up all 20 acres of the site to zero, destroying the fallow, hogweed, weeds and tall grass up to the waist. And yes, remember to run in. For the first couple of days, mow for 10 minutes at intervals of 7-10 minutes. If you follow all the instructions, then this horse will serve for many many years.

I have been operating for the third consecutive season, what can I say. The other day I took it out of the pantry, looked at the object. It’s time to change the air filter, the fuel is still normal. I mowed all the grass in the garden at once, I was not tired, my hands were not buzzing, my back was not aching. I took this trimmer instead of the Partnera T330 Pro, which for some unknown reason cracked at the installation site of one single bearing. Husqvarna was pleased at this moment. a 2-support crankshaft should be many times more reliable. Plus convenient control in one place on the steering wheel, and not on the bar with high vibration, after which all the fingers are buzzing. The power is similar, the fuel consumption is also about the same.

My advice to you. if you do not use the oblique for a long time, check the fuel filter before starting to see if there is any plaque or oxidation on it. Replace if necessary. I had a carburetor on my Partner, I had to clean the filter every time, but I only made and scored 3 times. As a result, I mowed 25 acres by hand. When I bought the 128R, it took six hours to process the same area and no more than 2 liters of gasoline. I mix only branded oil, 1:50 as expected.

I really like the braid, the harness with the belt fits like a native, there are two handles, it is convenient to hold. Even the fishing line carries away all the grass, any bushes, any twigs. The bevel goes even, gathers more or less evenly, without scattering to the sides. The main thing is to study the instructions correctly and do everything that needs to be done before the first launch. If you have any problems. read the instructions or watch the video on the Internet, everything is described there and in 99% you will solve the problems yourself.

The disadvantages I found can hardly be called disadvantages. A slight vibration causes some discomfort, but not in the joints, but in the skin. Probably, this is my jump. Plus I don’t use gloves, although the instructions say so. Be careful with the fishing line, too hard bushes break it off easily and you have to tighten it again.

There is no better ratio of quality and price on the market! No problem with winding up the grass that many talk about. For three years of work, I did not find any significant shortcomings, it was always easy to start up, worked flawlessly. It’s five!

Lightweight, quick to start, fuel efficient, quite quiet

I bought it last week, in three days I cleared 35 acres of summer cottages from weeds and thickets, tall grass, young trees. everything went under the knife! Surprisingly, it starts up without any effort at all, just do everything according to the instructions. Initially I used a cover with a standard knife. mowed normally, but between them the grass was constantly stuck. As a result, I took off the protective cover (yes, I know, it is not safe, but very productive), sharpened the knife with an ordinary file. the scythe went like clockwork! So much time to lose with this knife, but I could just do as it is written. Gasoline consumes 20-30 percent less than a similar MTD728.

An interesting observation. means bought gasoline, poured into old lawn mowers, did not start. the carburetor turned out to be clogged. In the canister, I noticed a small precipitate in flakes, which I don’t know is connected with, like oil and fuel. Now I always refuel motor vehicles using a regular disposable napkin as a filter.

Safe, quiet, lightweight, ergonomic. great helper for gardening)

In short, I advise you to braid! Grass, burdocks, nettles, weeds a meter high. with a bang! I processed the entire area in an hour and a half, with a couple of smoke breaks, it took 0.5 liters. Oh, and it’s also very quiet, I don’t use headphones. Do not skimp on quality, such equipment is bought infrequently and for decades, and Husqvarna is definitely the best among garden manufacturers.

How To Grease The Flex Cable In Your Trimmer

All harness is excellent and comfortable, including the belt. The rest is in the comments.

There are no shortcomings, and more on that below))

The most important and terrible episode for me passed without problems! The first launch threatened to be the last minute for the starter and motor, but the starter started up as it should, the motor did not fall off after 10 minutes of load. This means that it is already better than the Chinese that I had before)) The main thing is to learn to play with the suction and control the speed correctly. I called the service, asked in advance about the cost of repairing the starter to amuse my Jewish soul. He also clarified how to start the engine correctly. So, you DO NOT need to jerk it in fits until the engine accelerates to all its three thousand rpm. Pull gently, little by little, and then it will start smoothly and will not break from such rapes. As for the work process itself. good, I like everything. Compared to the previous makita, it’s just a fairy tale. the grass is placed on the ground at any thickness and degree of density. The line does not fly out, it works almost like a knife. With a full tank (this is about 400 milliliters), it was enough for me to work intensively for 40-45 minutes on hogweed, weeds and other tall vermin. I did it with a bang, because I am very happy with my purchase.

The balance of the drivetrain and the power of the engine are source of pride. Holding it in your hands, you feel as if you bought a professional tool, and not a household assistant. It starts up without pretensions, no long jerks and buzzing at idle. In its price category, the best offer, equipment and characteristics are better than those of any well-known brands))

The bar cannot be disassembled. Maybe it’s stronger this way, but it’s not very pleasant to transport somewhere.
