 A couple things to check after lots of hours

 Check that the tie rod bolts are tight on the toe boards, mine came loose causing the O ring on the bottom to leak. Easy to put in but tightening them is easier.   
 On the back where all the hoses go down under the handles put a heater hose between them and the metal bar that they go around.    Steve

Steve  how often do you grease the main  drive bearing ?  And what brand of grease  do you use on that bearing? I took your advise on sheathing the hoses a couple months ago thanks I had some chaffing going on.

Steve,I'll make sure I check that,thanks!     Jeff ,I use only petroleum base grease on every thing I own! Oil based grease will keep fine dust/dirt out of places you don't want it to get.It also stays soft in cold climates!  Keith

 I've been giving them 3 pumps every 40 hours , still the original  bearings . I use one of the more expensive ones from the local fleet, don't even know what kind.
