    You want a grease gun and a heat tolerant suitable grease cartridge -- works out massively cheaper very quickly 

    think this was the one : https://landscapejuicenetwork.com/forum/topics/greasing-a-gearbox

    and i believe lithium high temp was a suitable alternative :

    Any good quality high temp lithium (which is what the stihl hedge grease is, the other is a high temp graphite grease) will do. I use oregon as i got a box for very cheap. But buying it in either the 5kg tub kinda size and decanting it or by the cartridge will be cheaper.

  • I went as far as to drill the Stihl screw in caps and add a grease nipple to them, on the long reach hedgecutters. Won't work on the hand held ones however as they would sit on the protruding nipple when placed on the flat.

    Just to add an option.

    The Pellenc product uses a very high performance lithium waterproof grease in the blades for the helion range hedgcutters

    this is a 400g tube (large grease gun size) and can be purchased from any pellenc dealer under part number 45677 and retails £10.50 + vat

    this should last a very long time in seal type gearbox's and is perfect for open box's when water / moisture can penertrate into the housing
