    I use the OEM Stihl grease in all of mine. I would suggest using it. 2 different types they make. One for trimmers and edgers, another type for hedge trimmers.

    I use Synthetic high temp grease right out of my grease gun. The same grease that I use for the zerks on my mower. Never any problems.
