My mower is from 1992. Mostly used as a trim mower as we had a tractor.

In recent weeks its developed an occasional loud squeak. I thought it might be the wheels and gave them all a good shot of silicone spray, no help.

While cutting today I noticed if I didn't engage the self propelled unit there was no squeak. Engaged there is. It's not constant, just occasional, one of those things that drives you crazy.

I believe the self propelled unit is sealed.

Any ideas???

Does it have the safety guard that hangs off the rear drive axle? If so try putting a little grease on the hangers.

had this mower for 20 years. the squeak is prob coming from the axel support bearings. they are low quality and wear fast on this model
