Does the cylinder that swings the hoe left and right on a 27D have a grease fitting on both ends? The cylinder extends way back inside the machine and I can not see a way to get to the back end of it. The exposed end has one. The owners manual makes no mention on one at this location.

Can’t say for certain on your 27d but most mini ex’s have a remote Zert fitting for that rear pin. Usually it’s on the front of the machine.

I found the answer to my question. There is no grease fitting for the back end of the boom swing cylinder. I cant believe John Deere would not provide a remote grease fitting for this pivot point. I was able to download the parts manual for the 27D and it shows no grease fitting.
