I have an sds drill which has a reservoir for grease. I have tried both B&Q
& Homebase but none of them stock the grease for these drills.
Anyone know what type of grease to use & where I might get it?

Alternatively you can buy a small pot from Screwfix for about 25 quid,
which comes with a free 6kg cheapo SDS drill! (or maybe theat's the
other way round? Anyway, better than I got when I bought my Bosch drill!)
Yep - I asked my local garage, and they gave me a handful of
sachets. They come with CV joints, but they grease them with
a gun, so they never use the supplied molybdenum disulphide
Note this is for applying to the back of the bits. I don't know
if you use the same grease in the gearbox, which is what I think
the OP is asking. My Metabo SDS gearbox can only be regreased by
the manufacturer, so I've never needed to investigate.
It also needs to be a rubber-friendly grease.
I used the wrong type on drill bits to start with, and it
perished the rubber nose of the chuck, which stopped it
working properly. Metabo were very good and sent me a new
SDS chuck for free, as apparently there should have been a
tube of the right grease supplied with the drill, but it was
missing. They also told me it had to be a molybdenum disulphide
