I have a Woods Rcc 42 Brush cutter that I use with my Kubota L185 and it does a excellent job on cutting my pasture. My question is how often I should be changing the gear oil? I have misplaced the owners guide and couldn't find the manual over at the Woods site.

I'm going to guess

some people would say once a year...If I change the gear oil in my brush hog once every ten years I'm lucky. Check it everry year and add if needed. It takes a 90W gear oil.

It has been my experience to check and inspect the condition of the gear oil periodically and replace it when it starts to turn color towards black, sludge builds up, or any bit of metal particles show. I have found that sythetic gear oils give me the best performance and drastically lowered gearbox operation temps. The easiest (but somewhat on the half *** side) way I have found to change gearbox oil is to use my oil sucker that I used to change the oil on my boat. It only takes a few minutes to do and makes it MUCH easier to change oil more frequently.
