Re: Gear Lubricant For Stihl Trimmers
My trimmer and my gas-powered hedge trimmer both have a "plug", on the control/gear head---maybe once a year, in the spring when I change air filters, etc, I give it a little shot of "white lithium" grease.....I picked up a tube of this stuff somewhere one time, and if you take the cap off, it screws right into the hole the gear plug came out of-squeeze one time, unscrew the tube, put metal plug back in...good to go!
Sometimes you just have to laugh..To keep from going insane!!
