I was what the fluid capacity is for the gear box of a 18093 tiller?

 

I've already downloaded and read the owner's manual but in terms of fluid capacity, it only speaks about how to check and fill the level.

 

I believe my tiller is the 18093 with the extension kit, but correct me if I'm wrong. I'm in the process of lubing it all up in prep for putting it to work. It hasn't been used in a long time and one of the seals I can tell has a very slow leak. I think it may have lost a lot of fluid as it sat in storage for who knows how long. Basically I'd like to get a general idea of how many quarts I should buy.

 

Thanks!

There should be another square plug on the side of the gear case, thats the level plug, the top one is the fill plug

 

Make sure you use 90wt Mineral Gear oil, Do not use synthetic

Right,

I already know it's low but just wondered what the total fluid capacity is for reference. :-)
