    I just purchased a new 1.5 yard poly spreader. It says to grease the auger shaft bearing every 20 hrs. Looked at everything is fully enclosed, do you just spray grease on each end of the auger or what? Also when it says its a 1.5 yards, is that mounded or level? Sorry for all the dumb questions, but buyers tech guy wont return my calls.

    If you turn the spreader onto its side, you will find a grease zerk at the back end of the auger. The 1.5 yd capacity is struck level with the top edges...
