Patented Bearing and Seal System

Patented Bearing and Seal System

Do you have to grease your drive every 5 hours?
Do you spend more time greasing than driving?
Where does all that grease go?

Not with Mud Buddy - they simply check our drive grease 
level every 50 hours, not five.

Mud Buddy invented the sealed mud motor drive over 15 years ago and today, no other mud motor lasts as long. The Mud Buddy exclusive seal design builds a pressure area between the seals while you drive that keeps mud and debris out and grease in your drive for a longer lasting and dependable drive.
