    Gator grease is probably the best product ever developed for the power equipment industry. It is the only grease that will hold up in a hedge trimmer when it is being used 8 hours every day. This grease will take up to 625 degrees and a pressure washer can't wash it off.

    The grease was developed for South Florida golf course equipment. The reels are power washed every day and the bearings really take a beating.

    If you are rebuilding blade spindles and start using Gator Grease on clean bearings the bearing life will be amazing. You don't have to over grease and turn the bearings into a grease pump and this grease will never coke around the bearings.

    It is now available from Rotary Corporation so ask your local dealer about availability.
