What kind of grease

I've got 2 bobcat walk behinds. What kind of grease should I use in my grease gun to grease the fittings?

Lucas is good if you can find it. I use cheap stuff from wally world. We grease the machines weekly anyway so I doubt the grease even has time to go bad.

Get the good stuff, it has to be real sticky. It's well worth it in the long run.

I like to use Mystic high temp.
But I also agree with what Pietro said, with regular maintenance it probably doesn't matter what type of grease you use.
