Best Grease for Lift

Considering the gear train of the front lift is shielded not sealed, is there a better choice than white lithium grease?

I will answer from a machinery point of view. Generally with an open gear, you do not want to use any type of grease. You want to use a open gear lubricant. Grease will hold particles in suspension. In an open gear you want particles to fall out.

Try this:
