Servicing attachments

Much like with a car, your Digga attachment needs to be serviced periodically to remain in an optimal working codition and avoid unnecessary wear or attachment failure. Specially designed for earthmoving applications, our oils lubricate and protect against severe load; reducing scuffing, pitting and abrasive wear of gears.

Service intervals

Changing your gear oil and servicing regularly is crucial for the longevity of your attachment. A gear which has been serviced as per the operator's manual will show no more than bed-in wear after 10 years of augering. The same gear submitted to the same work with the oil changed only once within the same period will show noticeable wear upon inspection with no decrease in performance. This gear will however deteriorate quickly and lead to total drive failure.

Contact you nearest Digga branch on 1300 4 DIGGA to book your next attachment gear oil change or service. Alternatively, follow the gear oil change guides or view our instructional videos for DIY information.
