I recently picked up a rather nice 1971 Toro 832. I figured I better do some maintenance to it. Can anyone tell me what Toro recommended for lube in the auger gearbox?

Thanks,
Jerry...

Hi Jerry,
Can't find a specific answer in my search...I'm sure you'll be fine with a 90 weight "gear oil." You should be able to get it at any auto parts place. The important thing is don't overfill her. She'll get too hot. MH

does not matter how heavy the gear box is. use 80-90 weight non synthetic gear oil. I have a 1974 toro 8-26.

I mentioned the construction of the gearbox in an effort to help you identify the unit. I have topped it off with 90w gear oil.
Thanks for the info.
Jerry...

THE HOUSING OF THE GEAR BOX IS CAST ALUM. THE GEARS ARE A TYPE OF STEEL. FROM THE EARLY 70'S TO THE LATE 90'S THE GEAR BOXES HAVE STAYED THE SAME. :cool:
