What is the level of gear oil in the gear box of magnetic drilling machine ? How do we know that it is sufficient in quantity and what is the duration of oil change?
Question from customer:
What is the level of gear oil in the gearbox of magnetic drilling machine? How do we know that it is sufficient in quantity and what is the duration of oil change?
The level is 30 mm down from the top of the gear box. The oil is automatic hydraulic oil for the gear box. You can buy it from the petrol station, it is for cars with automatic gear. (Not the motor oil).
If the oil gets dark it can be once a year than you can change the oil. Otherwise change it only when there was a damge in the gear. There could be some abrasion inside.
