We, at Wm. Nobbe & Co., would like to bring something very important to your atten-tion. We have been noticing a trend of the drive shaft going from the transmission to the engine on 1000 series compact tractors, 20 - 25 HP compacts, being overlooked for maintenance. If this shaft is never greased it will result in failure of the shaft which could cause extensive damage to the unit. Greasing the shaft is included in our annu-al maintenance service. This could save you thousands of dollars.
