    I use wheel bearing grease on the spindles and Marine grade on the casters and other grease points that get wet.

    Since I grease the thing daily, I use regular grease (buy at Northern) thou synthetic prolongs life especially in dry-run situations (such as when you forget, which can and does happen). Me, I like maintenance and I rarely forget the grease so the cost of bearings is less than the cost of synthetic. :)
