I just got a RER Snapper from my FIL and I have been going through it getting everything to work. The manual calls for Snapper #00 grease, what would be the equivalent to the Snapper Grease? Thanks
Snapper Differential Grease

Bill see if any of the supply house around you have any type of NLGI 00 grease. I saw Amsoil has one that is equivalent (SAE 190).
From what I see the 00 is a semi liquid grease, and for your application gear oil would be to thin and standard grease would be to thick.
Hope this helps and good luck. I can say that I have never run into anything requiring that yet.

Most Snapper dealers sell the 00 Fiber Grease. ....It was packaged in plastic one-quart bottles. ....Part # 11050.
It is also available through dealers that sell Sten's parts as Sten's part # 770-123 (1 quart bottle) or # 770-127 (9 oz tube).
Alternate Snapper part numbers are #61017 & #7061017, but these may be for smaller conatiners???
The closest thing to that is "Cornhead grease" sold by John Deere AG dealers.

Thanks for the info. I'll check with the supply house and see what they come up with.
