The article presents readers' views on the most challenging gear lubrication problem they have encountered. They include one about the wear/EP protection against severely stressed conditions and manufacturing variability with lower viscosity fluid, lubricating gears on a sugarcane crushing machine and dealing with variable frequency/speed drive gear motors. Other problems involve gearboxes, especially a gearbox with heat generation potential and gears made out of synthane, which are designed to run dry in a high-heat environment.
