Indeed, but if your going to put grease nipples on, just drill the hole gently so you don't crack the casing.
If you don't know how to open the gearbox, check out this video by Fearlessfront.

This gearbox is a peerless but it's the same basic principle to open, grease and reseal it.

As an experement i put a few zerks in a mod MTD transaxle - i put mine where theyd be easy to grease - underneath near the axle ends and right by the main drive gear - they could be put pretty much anywhere except where itd interfere with anything inside - it just needs to be in the area, the grease will spread out.

I bot a box of grease fittings from harbor freight, a tap and die set and a good set of drill bits - you drill then tap the hole, then for added insurance i put a dab of locktite on the zerk to keep it in place.


If the tractor is trail ridden or mudded, id put them in an acessable spot , but pointing out the sides, so they wont be ripped off by debris.

Box of various sized zerks was like $5 - tap and die kit was like $15 - i used a step drill bit just a lil smaller then the zerk. All the stuff was at Harbor freight.
