    YAGQ - Yet another grease question

    Well it was a rainy day, so the 8 yards of recycled crushed aggregate sat in the driveway and I spent a few hours reading the manual that came with my tractor, loader and backhoe.

    I want to gather the correct grease and as far as the loader and tractor itself go, seems like the John Deere SD Polyurea is both recommended and available.

    The backhoe is another story. It is a 2018 260B. The manual recommends John Deere Moly High Temperature EP Grease. I can find John Deere HD Moly Grease, part number TY6333, which thanks to a PDF I found on this site is described as both high temperature and extreme-pressure, but isn't what the manual calls out. Is this just yet another error in the John Deere documentation? I'm pretty sure the TY6333 will do the job so unless someone can tell me otherwise, I guess I'll just get some.

    One more question. In the tractor manual (1025R) under grease it lists preferred grease, and preferred lubricant. Under preferred lubricant it lists Super Lube Lubricant. Super Lube is an entire line of products by Synco, so what are they talking about?

    Thanks all.

    I don't worry about using what is in the manual and I can't answer your question. I got chastised for this before, but this is what I use.

    X-TRA Heavy Duty Grease

    It's readily available at my local parts store.

    The TY6333 grease is what your backhoe wants.
    TY6333 3% Moly Lithium complex high-temperature EP

    As for the Super-Lube, that wording has caused a lot of confusion lately. The Super Lube "lubricant" they are referring to is the JD Super Lube spray lubricant. It comes in two types:

    Super Lube Multipurpose Synthetic Lubricant (TY25733)

    Super Lube Synthetic Dri-Film Lubricant (TY25398)

    The dry lubricant is useful for areas where you don't want the lube attracting dirt (like the 3PH arm ball ends). The regular Super Lube spray can be used everywhere else.

    Thanks for clearing all of that up. Went ahead and ordered the grease and lube, ordered two Lincoln 1134 grease guns, a standard and long Lock-n-lube fitting, a set of gun barrel caps and the Flexzilla Grease Hose. I saw those things mentioned by you in the tread discussing the Lube Shuttle grease gun.

    I almost went with the Lube Shuttle but didn't want to buy 20 tubes of grease and store it. I like being able to drop by the dealer or add a tube on to an order at Greenfarmparts.com. I have to admit though, that lube shuttle does seem like a game changer. I bet if the tractor manufactureres started selling them, along with the grease there would a lot of happy guys out there.

    Thanks again for the info.

    On these little machines that aren't going to see commercial abuse, you are probably right about ignoring the manual. I've read here several times that more important than the type of grease is making sure that you USE the grease often, whatever it is. I don't have the experience or expertiese that you and others have, so I tend to do things by the book. The JD grease is cheap enough, though having to have two grease gun setups is annoying. However it's likely a 1 time expense so I'll get over it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    There's no doubt that any grease is better than no grease but in some cases the wrong grease can be almost as bad as none. The backhoe is probably the most picky since its bushings see a high load and are subject to galling. The loader bushings are also picky.

    I keep two grease guns as well. One with JD SD Polyurea and one with a Lithium base that is required for my landscape trailer wheel bearings.

    I've pretty much standardized on the SD Polyurea for everything around here that has a grease fitting. It is relatively cheap and readily available.

    At 70 years "young"...I wish!... my memory to often fails me. I've got 2 grease guns, 1 with No.2 grease and 1 with EP grease. I printed some 1x2-5/8" address labels, "No 2" & "EP", cleaned the outside of the guns and attached labels...a coat of clear will protect them... Bob

    I don't ignore the manual, but I use it as a guide and see what the rating for grease is. The grease I use exceeds what is recommended by JD and that is what I really want. I have been using this grease for a lot of applications and never had any problems with it.

    I've been using mystik No.2 high heat EP lithium grease for quite a while. I'll probably switch to shell or valvoline next time because I don't support socialist Venezuela (Mystik is made by citgo which is owned by the Venezuelan government)

    Anyway, it works well. Never had issues with it. I use it in driveshafts, U joints, backhoe, loader, etc.
