For what it is worth, I don't believe there is any grease that is  suitable 
for a rotator. In the winter, the viscosity is so high, the rotor  strains or 
stalls. Over time, the grease hardens, losing its ability to  lubricate, and 
eventually the bearings and races become destroyed. 
I have always used AW-32 hydraulic oil in my rotors and have never  had a 
failure. It doesn't take much to lube the balls (or bearings), just a  coating 
you don't want oil sloshing around inside the rotor!
I am interested in other's opinion...
