#4623866 - 01/04/18 01:40 PM Grease for Torsion Axle Pivots

I have a Terex ST 50 (a small 2 places show machine with rubber tracks) and the maintenance calls for daily greasing of the Torsion Axle Pivot, and the manual calls for Terex Multi-Purpose EP Lithium grease.

So as you may expect, those pivots has most likely never been maintained before I found the manual online today.
Here's what I currently have:

  • Mystic 6 (green) calcium grease
  • Some MD Moly Lithium based grease

Is any of my grease appropriate to use ASAP, or should I order the proper grease and wait for it?

Thanks for your knowledge!

I'd probably use the lithium grease with moly and see how it differs with the prescribed grease. What you have on hand may be better, and if you decide to change to the grease from the manual lithium grease is compatible with lithium grease.
