This is what I've been using to good result.
But, even a simple 3 in 1 oil would work just fine.

I use regilar WD-40 primarily because I already have it. What Mike recommended I used on my snow blower; guess I will try that too.

I recommend Fluid Film...a non-oil based lubricant...good for working around green things...:)

So far the WD40 silicone spray I linked to hasn't hurt any of my green things. Not disparaging Fluid Film, just offering another option.

Also vouch for Fluid Film.  Offers good lubrication, along with a coating to fend off sap and other residue.  As mentioned, harmless to the plants.
