 They have 5  (FIVE!) lube points IIRC and that needs to be done pretty regularly to keep them operating properly.  2 on the body and one each for the blades.

We've got a kiwi and haven't had / heard of this level of issue. We do check it at least annually, but we've never had to lube it excessively.
