Simplicity 4212

Recommended Posts


I just came across a 4212 and cannot find any way to lubricate the spindles on the mowing deck...I found the operators manual and I don't see any reference to lubing the spindles...seems like only four grease fittings on the whole thing...one on each front tire hub and one on each steering strut..all other lube spots just get a shot of engine oil..anyone know if there is any lube required for the deck?  Thanks   Mark

I'm pretty sure the 4212 deck has the newer spline arbors (with 2 piece "tube").  

If so the original ones didn't come with grease fittings.  The bearings are sealed and really can't be greased.  

But according to an old Al Eden post, customer/dealer feedback led to adding grease fittings at some point.
