    What's the best grease I should be using on my machine? Where can I find it online the cheapest? Is it worth buying by the drum?

    we just use red head grease in the tubes....buy it by the case from the auto parts. the drums a good idea,,,but. if your machines onsite you cant take the drum with you. just get some guns, and tubes and you'll be fine.

    Cool, I just ordered two cases of the red grease. $120 for 20 tubes. I've been having a hard time greasing the ASV's because of old grease and the fact that my grip is weak, I can't push it through. I just picked up the new Lincoln power greaser with the 18v lithium ion battery. I used it today doin the machines and it made it so easy. Thanks for the reply.

    That seems really expensive for grease. We run wolfs head red and and its only about $35 or so a box. I believe there is about 20 tubes per box.

    I will definitely look into that. That is a lot cheaper.

    Cheap and best rarely go together. I use Movil 1 synthetic grease for my cars and around the shop. Of course I only use a tube or two per year.

    We spend a lot on grease. We grease our equipment before every use. It's a heck of a lot easier to grease a machine than it us to replace pins and bushings.
