Hey guys,

What's the best type of grease that should I use to repack my old Tri-burner's carpet feeder gearbox?
It's due for a repack after 10 years. That should quiet it down a tad too, I say! :?
Ha!

I'd give Alaska a call and ask (570)387-0260 you wouldn't want something that would breakdown and leak constantly all season or to heavy causing the motor to work harder .

Good idea, I used high temperature wheel bearing grease on mine.
