Chain lube setup
"It's an easy way to lubricate hard-to-get-at chains," says Roger Kuntz, who came up with a simple lube system using aerosol cans to oil the chains on his old Gleaner CII combine as well as other equipment on his farm. He says all the parts needed can be purchased off-the-shelf or his company, Ag Enterprises, sells a do-it-yourself kit.
"It eliminates the mess normally involved with lubrication and because it takes just a second you're more likely to use it even when you're busy," says Kuntz.
He mounts an aerosol can in a convenient location and runs a clear polyvinyl hose from the canto the chain. Both the can and end of the hose are held in place with metal brackets. The hose is small enough so it fits snugly over the long plastic snout supplied with most aerosol cans. He applies lubrication to the inner side of the chain so that centrifugal force will dispense lube into the chain rather than flinging it off.
Kuntz sells all components separately (hose $.75/ft.; hosebracket $2; can mounting bracket $4.50; can of aerosol lube $ 5.00) or as a complete kit with 20 ft. of hose for $19.95 ($2.00 shipping).
