Application would be a snowmobile suspension.

Looking for a good grease for cold weather. It would be used to lubricate the pivot points on the suspension. It will be applied through zerks.

TIA

Amsoil Series 2000 Synthetic Racing Grease is a great cold weather grease and used quite a bit on snowmobiles.

Mobilith SHC series are a good start.

They are available in various base-stock viscosities as well as NGLI grades.

I am giong to try Schaeffers 274 #1 next year if I can get some down to Ontario. Seems to get good reviews on this site and the Al base should help with washout from water skipping. I am interested to see some other suggestions as well.

Syn low viscosity oil + Syn thickener + NGI 1 = excellent low temp grease
