I'm really surprised that the manual for my Husky GT48LSXi doesn't give any specs on grease. I have a grease gun with high temp red wheel bearing grease in it. Do you suppose that will work as well as anything?

What are the grease fittings on? Blade spindles or kingpins in the front axle?

Joe I'm sure the manufacturer has specific grease for different applications but to quote a wise old school mechanic..."**** boy, any grease at all is better than none at all". I can tell you that at the dealership I've worked at for 15 years none of the techs have multiple grease guns. They all use a universal lube that is hi-temp/hi-speed lithium/moly blend. Nothing special!

Thanks, that's kinda what I was thinking! Any good quality grease should do it.

If you're using the grease in the deck spindles you want a good hi temp grease. Blade spindles generate a lot of heat.

I keep my gun loaded with Mystik JT6 high temp red grease. I use it for everything from my Mother-in-law's John Deere x475 deck and chassis, to the suspension on all of our cars.
