Are you wondering how to grease your Steel Green machine? Find out by watching the video below, featuring Kodi Quinlisk, or read on to find out how.

Our machines have a total of five different grease fittings. A grease fitting is under each front wheel, on the side of each front caster, and underneath the machine on the tensioner arm.

Start with the grease fittings on the front wheels (You’ll want to have a grease gun that is rated for bearings). Put your grease gun on one of the front wheel grease fittings. As you’re greasing it, you’re going to want to watch the gap on both sides of the tire for grease coming out.
