 Woods XT160 bush hog questions

Finally found me a used bush hog. It is a 2000 model that somebody stove up by going over a stump or rock and forced the blades into the deck to form a round ring in the deck. Looked like a good deal for $500.Anyhow, what kind of oil goes in the gear box?Also, the lower two big pins on the bush hog's 3ph are about 4" long. It is tough to get it on my tractor without dragging it forward with only one arm on and turning the wheel hard to get the other arm on. Can I get shorter pins the same diameter? This would also narrow down the width of my arms and help keep them from occasionally rubbing my tires when turning.Someone told me not to back up with a bush hog lowered, is this true?

Normally 40 weight gear oil is used in the transmission. You can buy shorter link pins, in a number of different lengths. The shortest ones would make it difficult to attach the arms as they are designed for stablizing arms.
I know of no reason that you can not back the Bushhog. A large Bushhog such as my 7ft can not be fully lifted easily. You just need to be careful that the back wheel/wheels pivot properly. You can bend a wheel shaft.

Not to contradict someone else, but I think you will find that MOST gear boxes require 90w gear oil, same as you would put in the rear-end of a (rear wheel drive) vehicle. This is especially true if you are cutting heavy material and/or in temps. above 70F. The other thing to check is that the unit did not get more bent than is visible, if the spindle or shaft got bent the vibration from continued use will continually destroy the bearings in it. Besides the vibration would be unbearable. Best of luck.

Gotta agree with Murf, it would be a very rare occasion when anything less than a 90w gear oil would be used in an implement gear box like a brush hog when our normal temps. Backing up will present a problem when the tail wheel digs in a little and the unit lifts in front. Mine lifts when backing up my steep banks. I keep the unit up and then set it down to come down the bank.

Many of the better oils are not straight weight for the rear ends any more. The last I bought when I rebuilt the rear end of my 97 Ford Pickup (another story)was 80-90. Sorry for the confusion.
