What lube use for the chain?

What do you use to lubricate the chain? I read that I have to put oil.

Here I use Jig-a-loo White lithium grease lubricant water-repellent Super Grease, do you think it is ok?

Thank you

The grease should be ok as long as it is not too thick being easily spread with the tip of your finger but remember avoid putting some on the friction disc and the friction wheel at all cost.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

What machine ?? Where is the chain located ??

On my three stage where a chain is out on the augers I submerge it in oil during the fall check over and use chain lube spray a couple times during the winter.
It was the first thing I replaced when I bought it as the chain was rusted solid and wouldn't flex at all from lack of maintenance.

On drive chains inside the transmission housing I usually just oil them. I feel the oil penetrates better than a spray.

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

Motorcycle chain oil would probably do a good job. It's pretty much all weather.

Plus 1 for motorcycle chain lube.

It's water proof and sticky so it won't fling all over the place. Plus it comes in spray can.

I was told the Silkolene is the best it is motorcycle chain lube.
I use it on my snowbirds chain and on some of the other moving parts that have no grease fitting to grease..

There are other blends, I bought this one, ( I must add not from this site, site just for reference)

I hate shoveling SNOW!
