  • Ridgid 700 loosing grease!

    my ridgid 700 power head is loosing grease from the back side. Do I need a new seal? their tech page does not list a grease seal. It does show a grease fitting, but my machine does not have a grease fitting. Any info would be appreciated.

    When you see grease that is a good thing(GREASE IS GOOD). IF THE GREASE bothers you take out the 8 bolts holding the cover plate and repake it with fresh grease. now there is no seal to worry about, the only thing you can check to see if there is a lot of play in the face gear assy. where the grease is comming out.if there is you might want to change the head bearing.

      Thanks for the info. No slack, just a little grease oozing out.
