What? You’re telling me that you need to maintain the trip springs of our KAGE skid steer plow??! Well, not the spring itself. Coil springs require zero maintenance. The telescoping tubes that are inside the spring(s) do need a bit of lubrication once in a while. They are what guide the spring and keep it from side – deflection. We recommend that you lubricate between these tubes at least once a season to prevent any corrosion and possible seizure of the trip edge on your skid steer snow plow trip edge.
