Manual Lubrication

Manual lubrication requires the use of a portable pump, which is not part of the machine, and an oil cup or grease fitting. Tubing or drilled passages carry the lubricant from the fittings to the friction points. Lubricant is applied by connecting the pump outlet to the fitting and injecting a specified amount of lubricant.
