    Default greasing caster wheels

    Greasing the caster wheels on my LandPride FDR2572 is getting to be difficult. If I just try to pump it in, it only comes out on one side of the bushing, which makes me worry that itís not getting to the other side. So, I try to push or pull the wheel up tight against the side the grease is coming out to force it to go out the other side. But, thatís hard to do on a caster wheel because it swivels around and wonít stay still. I need 3 hands, one to hold the caster fork from swiveling, one to push or pull on the wheel, and one to pump the grease. Anybody else have this problem? Maybe itís time to take them apart and clean them up good.

    Default Re: greasing caster wheels

    I wouldn't worry about it. I just spin the wheel a few times after I grease it or you can even turn it while you're greasing it. There's not a lot of pressure there so any grease that get's in there will do it's job. True, if you feel like they're all gunked up maybe it's time to clean them.
