Digga tips - Servicing and changing the oil of your Digga drive unit.

It is important to service your Digga drive unit and change the oil regularly as per the owners manual. This will ensure longevity and performance of your drive.

The oil in your drive unit is independent to your hydraulic system.
Oil from your machine does not lubricate your drive unit.
As a result your auger drive requires regular oil changes to remain in perfect working condition.
