Not only oil grade is important for cutting gear but also service intervals. A few recommendations on the frequency and order of changing oil in a motoblock gearbox from the leading manufacturers:

How to change the oil? Manufacturer’s recommendation for gear oil change intervals for your motoblock gearbox
Favorit (ZD) Change the oil in the engine and tractor gearbox after the first 25 hours of operation.Further on change oil in the reduction gear of the engine and gearbox of the walking tractor after every 250 hours of work.Change the oil right after you have finished working, if necessary.е. When the oil is still warm. Drain the oil through the oil drain plug. Fill with fresh oil through the oil filler opening.
Tselina Change the oil for the first time after 50 hours, then do the following. after 200 hours of work
Ugra, Oka (Kadvi) At daily maintenance replenishmentReplacement at service intervals every 100 hours of operationIn storage change oil once a year
Agat Oil change every 100 hours of operation
Belarus 08H-09H (MTZ) every 250 operating hours
Vario Change oil every 2 years or every 100 hours
Neva REFRIGERANT SERVICE AFTER EACH 100 HOURS USE (except engine). Change oil immediately after operating the powerpack:1. Tilt the single-axle tractor into an upright position.2. Place a container of at least 3 liters under the gearbox.3. Unscrew the breather plug, clean it of dirt.4. Remove the oil drain screw, drain the oil from the gearbox.5. After draining oil, screw in oil drain screw with gasket, tighten screw. Take the oil to a waste oil collection point.6. Fill up with 2.2 l fresh gear oil of the correct operating temperature through the oil drain plug.7. Screw in the breather plug.8. Clean debris from the drive belt lever shaft and bushing.9. Lubricate the drive belt tension lever axle and bushings with motor oil.10. Check the clutch, adjust the tension of the drive belt.11. Lubricate the clutch cable.12. Apply a few drops of any engine oil to the clearance between the cable and the sheath on the lever side.

I have a cultivator VIKING HB-560, picked up at www.STIHL.The cable is not damaged.It looks like you got a good one.

Check the clutch, check how the clutch mechanism works, adjust the tension of the drive belt.)

I have a VIKING HB-560 cultivator.STIHL.clean the cable with a few drops of any engine oil.Looks like you got a good one.

You can kill the best machine without looking. You might have something that is almost unkillable, but there is a limit to what you can do, better take a look.

If you have such a kebab, then why do we need a cultivator? I honestly have not looked into mine in 2 years, it still works. I will have a look, maybe I should fill it up.

I have the exact same one only Beezone, third year, cracked the frame a little near the handlebars, t.к. Riding it with a trailer. I got the bolts loose from the vibration, glued them on the glue, no more problems. It’s a great machine for the price,

I agree, I have most of the flaws because of a little negligent treatment, plow man 2 on 2, his whole life on the KAMAZ)) Gearbox only upset me, or rather the assembly

I have not disassembled yet, soon I will reinforce the frame, and there and look, but in the manual it says to pour oil into the gearbox before work, I poured from the beginning transmisson, then something like nigrol, slower runs away. All well and good, but the seals would be nice, and the speed of the second

I have nothing in Russian and was not written)) But I think mine should not be oil, why is it mixed with solidol?

I have the plug on the side of the filler. You don’t understand the Chinese! Maybe the oil should dissolve the salt and lubricate the chain I don’t know

Here, there is also a type of plastic. I’m thinking of buying a pound of good grease and stuffing it with oil seals


Gearbox is a special device included in the design of any power block. It is this part that is responsible for converting and transmitting the torque that is generated by the mechanical gears. In fact, it’s the gearbox that drives the single axle tractor and makes it work.

Its quality, as well as the correct lubrication of its components will depend on the service life of the entire engine block, as well as its normal operation.

For more information on the gearbox see

Depending on the model of power tiller, whether it is Caiman, Patriot Ural, Patriot, Texas, Pro Arab or any other, gearboxes may differ from each other by some design features. Conventionally, reducers can be divided into several types:

  • Gearboxes. In this case, the gearbox transmission acts as a kind of intermediary between the engine and the wheel base of the power tiller.
  • Reduction gears. These units provide more power by reducing overall RPM. These gearboxes are most preferred because they have an air cooling system that allows them to operate at maximum loads.
  • Reverse gearboxes. The main advantage of such gearboxes is the ability to reverse the motoblock. However, units equipped with this type of gearbox do not show high performance and speeds.

Regardless of which particular gearbox is used in the design of a motor-block, they all consist of almost the same components:

  • shaft;
  • gearbox housing;
  • flange and its mounting;
  • Pulley with V-belt transmission (or chain);
  • ball bearing;
  • sprockets;
  • drain plug;
  • steel washer and nut;
  • input shaft.

These components traditionally form the gear unit itself. How well they are lubricated will determine their performance and service life.

Otherwise, with insufficient lubrication, the parts will be severely worn, because they come into contact with each other during operation, and the resulting friction negatively affects their surface.

Lubricant for the gearbox of angle grinders

Virtually all global tool manufacturers need their recommended “own” oil, sold under their brand name. In principle this is correct. The oil used for grinding grinders, in this case, is tested at the factory, it ensures long and proper operation of angle grinders. However, there are also disadvantages, which lie in the high price of these brands of oil.

Open gearbox grease angle grinder

In addition to the original oils, there are many lubricants on the market that are made by third-party manufacturers, so the question of what exactly to lubricate the grinder on the grinder is not a sharp.

Russian manufacturers also do not lag behind foreign manufacturers and offer their products. For example, Nanotech’s bevel gear angle grinder lubricant is very popular. Of course, this gear oil is not original and is not recommended by the manufacturer, so if you use it in the subsequent warranty repair you can simply refuse.

Options and types of oil for air-cooled four-stroke engines

Many motorists and owners of agricultural machinery are discussing the choice of oil used in air-cooled four-stroke engines. This question concerns directly those who own light gardening equipment, motorboat, motorcycle.

What is the peculiarity of this machine, why does it need special oil, and what are the consequences of the wrong choice, which can be very negative. About this and much more is discussed in this article.

Oil in the fuel mixture

For normal work of 2-stroke engines some oil should be added to fuel, preparing so called fuel mixture.

4-stroke engines do not need such a mixture and they are only filled with pure fuel without adding oil. Diesel engines also do not need to add oil to gasoline, or they can fail quickly.

Application in practice of the above recommendations will allow for timely replacement of lubricant in the unit, thus keeping its mechanism in working order and substantially saving money on its repairs.

When buying a single-axle tractor you must remember that its durability depends not only on the replacement of consumables, parts, tightening the right nuts, but also on the timely oil replacement in the power tiller.

How well you choose the right engine oil for your power harvester determines the longevity and performance of the equipment. The question arises, what oil to fill in the engine of a power tiller, how to change it or check the level.

Is it necessary to add oil to gasoline for a power tiller?

There are two types of engines for power tillers: two-stroke and four-stroke. What the engine of the device works on is also important. diesel or gasoline. The question of whether it is necessary to pour oil into gasoline, the owners of diesel motoblocs do not have. Plus, all four-stroke motor blocks are diesel, so they are put off, here oil is not added to the fuel.

For gasoline-powered machinery with a two-stroke engine to add oil to gasoline. It is done in the following proportions. 1 part oil and 4 parts gasoline. So if the engine is designed for 1000 liters, then 200 ml of oil and 800 ml of gasoline are poured into it. This is why there are no clear limitations here, you just have to watch the weather. So there are no clear limits here, you just need to look at the weather. In fact, there are three types of oil. summer, winter and general for all seasons.
