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.

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
