Grease for Utility Wagon Axle

Recommended Posts

I should get some grease for my utility wagon that I pull behind my Honda.  It's just a shaft and a wheel.  Any suggestions on the kind to get?

I use a good synthetic wheel bearing grease, same stuff i use on my boat trailer because I pull across the river frequently hauling firewood. So somewhat extreme, otherwise like shadetree said any grease will be fine.

All I use on my travel trailer is the red wheel bearing grease. Just the basic. However I “assume” you know how to properly pack them?!

These aren't for a travel trailer, but a straight-through axle utility trailer that pulls behind my atv.  Just an axle and the wheel slips over it and a pin is used to hold it on.  I'll just grease the axle, inside the wheel sleeve (hole, etc) and put it back on.  As for my normal transport trailer, I've helped pack bearings but have never done it on my own.

mystic red grease ? that's good grease, i used on machines back in the day, but i got started using bel-ray water proof grease.

 

 i have one, no bearing, just a naked axle and hub, some have nylon inserts, mines metal on metal with a a washer on the back side, and one on the front side, with (yep) just a cotter key holding it on.

Mine is just like that.  Metal on metal, washers on both sides, cotter key.  Un-greased, temporarily.

Heck no.  That stuff is liquid gold.  You don't waste it on mechanicals!

 

I like the red high temp grease.  Use it on just about everything.

ya cut off the winter fat,(that stuff make the meat taste bad if ya leave it on), cook it in a pot,taking out the sinew, pour it in a coffee can. IDK what kind of temperatures it will take. no need to waste bacon grease though.
