I have a Banebots P80 Gearbox (64:1) and it says I have to add grease before use. What kind of grease is suitable and how much should I apply?

Hi brettheistinger,

Here is what the manufacturer claim regarding grease:
Quote:
GEARBOX MUST BE GREASED
Prior to use the gearbox must be greased, grease IS NOT INCLUDED and must be purchased separately. We recommend Mobil XHP 222 Special grease; however, most lithium based ball bearing grease can be used. We do not sell grease separately, it can be readily purchased from most local auto parts stores or online suppliers such as MSC, Grainger, and McMaster among others. Custom gearboxes can be supplied greased.


We hope this help,

Great, thank you very much! I'm also wondering, how often the gearbox should be greased?

This is not stated but depend on the grease itself.
Encased motor like this would not really require you to change the grease.
