Scag recommends the following 5 lubricants for their deck spindles.

Mobilix #2 found at Mobil Service Stations
Ronex MP found at Exxon Service Stations
Super Lube MEP #2 & Super Stay-M #2 found at Conoco Stations
Shell Alvania #2 found at Shell Service Stations
Lidok EP #2 found at industrial shops

Will any good quality NLGI #2 lithium grease be OK to use, or is there something specific about these 5 lubricants?

Also, any idea of where one can be purchased online?

I ran across this when searching for these recommended greases.

3 of them are discontinued. Does anyone have any leads on where to find a decent white lithium grease for my Scag Z Cat spindles.Scag doesn't seem to stay too up-to-date with their own products

Don't know of the quality of it, but I'm gonna give it a shot, no pun intended!

...after much research..."LITH PRO-tection 500+"...I buy it at the local farmers co-op for $1.39 a tube...I've ran it in my scag TT for 2 years...works great...but really any hi temp lithium grease made for wheel bearing applications should work fine.

The Home Depot has it in tube form for grease guns.

We've been using a red grease called Redi-Lube, it's a moly based grease for a long time. Haven't had any problems with the Scag deck spindles.
