What type of gear lube should I use for my Hobart H600 mixer?
below is a copy of an e-mail from Horartservice.com. I searched the web forhours for the correct oil and could not find any info so I e-mailed Hobart.
The Planetary is a different part from the transmission andthe sight glass on a M802 is for the oil in the transmission.
The answer that Hobart gave is not an NSF oil. Ineeded the oil for the planetary section on a model M802. Even the directionssay that it is normal for a drop of oil to occasionally drip from the seal.That is where the dough hook attaches.
I am in the process of researching the oil and Exxon / Mobildoes make a NSF version. I just need to find somewhere I can buy less then a 55-gallondrum. The above mixer only uses 6 ounces.
Take care and stay safe
