Question about Garden
Need to lubricate the drive cable, what lubricant do i use
Bicycle chain lube works well in these situations. It's usually a teflon based lubricant, light weight, with good penetration, and little tendency to gum up in the long run.
In a pinch, WD40 will work as well...though it will tend to gather more dirt and dust. If you have rust issues, WD40 will drive the moisture out...
Make sure the moving parts attached to the end of the cable are freely moving as well. Frequently they are the cause of the friction, rather that the cable itself...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
