|cyborg||Picked up the gasket. Didn't installed yet. I have re-tightened all the bolts. I just monitored for the time being. So far, no oil leak on my mat.|

Well Wayne, lots of opinions here. Let us know what you ended up doing and how it worked out.

As mentioned above where is it leaking from ?? Have you checked the level according to the manual to make sure it's not overfilled ??
Doesn't take much to look like a big leak and make a mess. NLGI "00" grease is almost an oil as it will flow and it's used predominantly in riding mower gear transmissions as it works well in all temperatures. It is a bit of a life hack if your manufacturer is calling for 85-95 gear oil but it can easily protect your gears and also stop or slow a leak without disassembling your auger and gearbox to replace seals.

Jack: why did you recommend the grease? The manual says to use GL-5 or GL-6, SAE 85-95 EP transmission oil .
Cyborg: is it leaking from the gasket around the perimeter of the 2 case halves? or from the auger shafts? Either way you would have to open up the gearbox and replace an oil seal or the gasket. It is straightforward to do.
I don't know the impact of too much oil in these, my machines do specify the grease, so that is what I have used.
