Garage
On that one the owners manual actually calls for "00". It's almost oil but not quite grease as you normally know grease. It's used a lot in riding mower transmissions.

The manual says to grease once each year with five shots or more often if required.

Page 4 - > Page 5 of Snapper Two Stage Snow Throwers Safety Instructions & Operator's Manual | ManualsOnline.com

Can be had or ordered from Oreilly auto parts, P/N 7-06612
Prime Line 7-06612 - Grease, 00 3 | O'Reilly Auto Parts
Orielly is just one source, ebay and others carry it.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
