I am reading a Cub Cadet serive manual and it specifies a Bostik medium grade never sieze product on the hex shaft. I have always used a heavy oil like 10w-40 and in some cases Fluid Film. Regardless of that. What is unique about this product? I would never use the anti sieize I know of on a hex shaft.. It is too thck and not appropriate for bearings or moving parts.

Never figured out why engineers spec an anti seize product on parts that move. Just apply a good quality grease and call it a day. I know there many different types of anti seizing compounds and i have a few but i have never had any out perform plain old grease on moving parts. I used to slather nevr-seize on mower axles. Last few years i just clean them and coat them with waterproof grease and haven't had a stuck hub yet.

That is my initial reaction. But to be fair and open minded I have never used or seen this product. IT is called Regular Grade not medium grade. My mistake.

I am curious about it. It claims to contain bearing grease. Can anyone with direct experience comment on how it performs on moving parts.?
