The following pages show the locations of all lubrication SEALED BEARINGS
points. Proper lubrication of all moving parts will help
ensure efficient operation of your KINZE® planter and LF212199-3
prolong the life of friction producing parts.
WARNING: Always install safety lockup
devices or lower to the ground before
working under the machine.
A number of sealed bearings are used on your KINZE®
Lubricate at frequency indicated with an SAE planter to provide trouble free operation. These are
multipurpose grease. located in such areas as the drive shaft, row units and
transmission bearings. Sealed bearings are lubricated
for life. Due to the seals, relubrication is not practical.
Lubricate at frequency indicated with a high quality WRAP SPRING WRENCH ASSEMBLY
SAE 10 weight oil or a quality spray lubricant.
The chain idler is equipped with a wrap spring wrench.
The wrench components may require occasional
lubrication to operate correctly. Disassembly is required
to lubricate. (a) Remove the ¼"-20 x ½" cap screw
that secures the idler with sprockets to the wrench
tightener shaft. (b) Remove the wrap spring wrench
from the planter. (c) Tip the wrap spring wrench on its
side and lubricate using a high quality spray lubricant.
Lubricant must be absorbed into the wrap spring area.
(d) Reinstall wrench on planter.

DRIVE CHAINS 08049714
All transmission and drive chains should be lubricated
daily with a high quality chain lubricant. Extreme
operating conditions such as dirt, temperature or
speed may require more frequent lubrication. If a
chain becomes stiff, it should be removed, soaked and
washed in solvent to loosen and remove dirt from the
joints. Then soak the chain in oil so the lubricant can
penetrate between the rollers and bushings.

Lubricate bushings at the frequency indicated.
Using a torque wrench, check each bolt for proper
torque. If bolt is loose, it should be removed and the
bushing inspected for cracks and wear. Replace bushing
if necessary. Only hardened flat washers should be
used. Replace damaged flat washers with proper
part. Torque hardware to 130 ft. lbs.

WHEEL BEARINGS LIQUID FERTILIZER PISTON PUMP
CRANKCASE OIL LEVEL
All wheel bearings should be repacked annually and
checked for wear. This applies to all drive wheels,
transport wheels and marker hubs. Plug
To check for wear, raise the wheel off the ground.
Check for endplay in the bearings by moving the tire Plug
side to side. Rotate the tire to check for roughness in
the bearings. If bearings sound rough, the hub should
be removed and the bearings inspected and replaced
if necessary. See Maintenance section.
To repack wheel hubs, follow the procedure outlined
for wheel bearing replacement with the exception that
bearings and bearing cups are reused.
Check crankcase oil daily and maintain at plug level.
Fill as needed with EP 90 weight gear oil. Total oil
capacity is approximately ¾ pint.
Refer to operator and instruction manual supplied with
the pump and flow divider for additional information.

Those parts equipped with grease fittings should be lubricated at the frequency indicated with an SAE multipurpose
grease. Be sure to clean the fitting thoroughly before using grease gun. The frequency of lubrication recommended
is based on normal operating conditions. Severe or unusual conditions may require more frequent attention.
WARNING: Always install safety lockup devices or lower the planter to the ground before working
under or around the machine.
