If you mean inside the gearbox then you need gear oil. Ask for it at a restaurant supply. if you mean grease for around other moving parts remember that it would be wise to find something that is food grade in case it gets into your product.
It's not oil in the A200, it's #2 weight grease. Although when it gets old enough it can break down far enough to basically become oil (either that or someone put oil in it previously). There are a number of answers written on fixya.com explaining how to disassemble the transmission and change the grease. Fill with 36 ounces #2 grease. FYI : disassembling the transmission and changing the grease is a very messy task and one can VERY easily reassemble the transmission incorrectly, so consider bringing the mixer to Hobart to have the job done.
Transmission has to be somewhat disassembled, grease removed, lower seal should be replaced and then grease added and reassembled. Not that easy to do. Check www.hobartservice.com for your local Hobart office.
as long as there is leaks down the beater shaft, or grease drips from the drip ring on the planetary you should be ok. the grease needed for the a-200 series mixer is a -47you can get @ any hobart office. buy 2 quart cans ,use 1.5 cans, there is an absorbtion rate capacity chart on the web for all hobart mixers to see if you are overbatching the mixer. hope this helps,
on a a200 there is no oil. this mixer requiers grease. if mixer is leaking oil it is because the grease is broken down .you have to pull tpo cover off mixer remove trans. parts clean out old grease clean all trans. parts reassemble put top cover back on .then make sure mixer runs in all 3-speeds before putting 1.5 cans of -47grease back in grease can be bought @any hobart office
it has to be torn apart to change grease and it is grease do not put oil in it. but it all is done from top under cover is the top of transmision the round cover comes of and all shafts need to be removed and I sugest a new main shaft seal and hub seal while your at it.
man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
