    I have been using shell gladus multipurpose extreme pressure grease cartridges for the past dozen or so years, for greasing the tractors the loader tractor, baler and all other jobs like muckspreader and all ptos, what do others use and why?
  2. Morris EP2. Its the one in the shop. Convenient and good enough

    Jcb blue grease. I find it seems to put up with wet conditions like a telehandler headstock better than others.

    Jcb blue grease it seems to linger around longer than standard grease
  10. I am glad you brought up this subject as I have a 90 year old Amanco open crank engine and the big end and main bearings have grease cups and I was wondering what is best grease to use...

    Red stuff from our local Q8 supplier Eurolube. Phalax (or something like that sounds slightly rude).

    He would do wouldn't he? MVF is EP2 the blue JCB grease is....different! I was told to use the JCB blue on the telehandler as above have said, it is better but regular EP2 in everything else.

    Majority of the grease will come from the same couple of factories the only difference between the jcb grease and most others will be a colour dye in it
