  • Keep machine surfaces clean and free of debris.
  • Periodically add grease in grease fitting.
  • Lubricate bearings per the table below via the Drive Fitting in the side of the Handle Arm Weldment with a NLGI GC-LB or SAE J310 grease per the lubrication guide, below.
  • To prevent corrosion in environments where the machine is used periodically, the top of the mounting plate, sliding surfaces of the handle and nose holder assemblies, and other nonlubricated bare metal surfaces may be protected with a suitable film coating such as paste wax, beeswax, Boeshield T-9, or similar.
