Hi. I have bought 2 of the 93939 trolly's used and both of them are very loud. I have greased the gears and it made no difference at all. It sounds like gear noise to me. Any idea how to fix the problem? Thanks

Hi Voltron,

They were all a little noisy to me, the 93939's came out in 1990 and were in the catalog til 2012, so yours could be anywhere in between.  Without hearing it it is hard for me to tell if they are normal or not. They could possibly be 27 years old and they may have been sitting around for a long time.  If you did not clean out the old grease you might want to do that, then I would try plastic compatible white grease with teflon, or add powdered teflon or graphite to the existing grease.  Then run them in for a few hours in each direction.  This may help with the noise.

Anyone out there with good ideas please jump in.
