I have read for years that you need to clean out all of the existing grease before adding new in case the new grease is incompatible. It even says that on the grease container. I would like to know if that incompatibility is due to the metal base of the grease or if itís because of certain additives?
So letís say my tractor came from the factory lubricated with a lithium grease. Would I be OK using any other lithium based grease? Thereís really no way to know which particular product was used and I donít want to go running to the Kabota dealer every time I need a tube of (overpriced) grease.
My main concern is with trailer bearings. Is there a way to test if the grease in my gun is compatible with the grease thatís already in the bearings, or do I just have to bite the bullet and pull down the hubs of my new used trailer and repack them?
