Another thread reminded me to see if someone can tell me what lube from today will sub for what Jacobsen called out for in their tiller manual.

I have tried Googling and no help unless I missed something.

That tells what it is, but what can you use instead of it? That's what I am looking for!

I guess they are saying the Mobilegrease XHP 220 is what to use. The tiller gearbox has needle bearings, straight cut gears, and a chain in there. I just don't want to add something the is not compatible with the factory lube and blow out the gearbox.

One of the lubes in the Jake manual says Mobil 00 or equivalent.  Snapper uses 00 grease it is thicker than gear oil thinner than wheel bearing grease.  Snapper has 2 gear boxes, one is a chain case, one has straight cut gears and needle bearings, probably similar to a tiller gear box.  afaik snapper 00 is used on all the machines back to the 60s.   Old jake tillers probably had similar grease technology to what Snapper was using back in the day as far as "base stock" or whatever the term is, so i'd guess they'd probably be compatible as far as chemicals.  Stens makes Snapper stuff here is a link good luck http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a8516f0a4

Thank you. I'll probably get that if it is needed. Both the tillers show signs of seepage, so I'm thinking they might need topping off.

I was thinking how my Grandfather on his Sears Custom 6 he would mix wheel bearing grease and gear lube  for mower deck gear boxes because they would leak with just the gear lube which was called for . There is probably a lube that would have done the same thing .

#0 and #00 are also known as "Corn Head Oil"

 

You can find it at an AG dealer like Case-HI or Deere.
