Re: grease gun

Had two Lincoln guns that were problematic,so I ordered an Alemite from McMaster Carr.No problems with it and also added one of these on the end of a flex hose.Works really nice.

Re: grease gun

I've had this one and used it for my business for at least ten years with zero problems, last spring I had the battery rebuilt by Interstate. I bought it at Farm and Fleet but most stores carry them.

Edit....Interstate told me the grease guns have a more heavy duty battery so I'm not sure if it would interchange with your Dewalt stuff.

Re: grease gun

I have 3 hand lever type guns.. don't know the brand of any of them.. they all work great.. what I find is that MTD machines have plastic greese zerks on their front wheels for the axle.. it is a simple slip in fitting.. it will leak greese instead of bein a guide to get the greese where it is needed.. have seen some if these missing as the entire thing was gone from the rim.. to install one in a rim.. they r just pushed in.. when mounted in rim.. they still wiggle around & leak where it mounts to the rim..

What matters the most in my opinion is the coupler.. The Chinese couplers included on most guns are garbage. I've got a couple older couplers that were made in the USA and work excellently. I've read that John Deere makes a good one, and there's one that clips on available through Amazon.

I always use a lever type gun with a rubber hose. I did use a pistol grip gun for awhile but it really wore my hand out. I hold the grease gun by the lever with my right hand and hold the hose with my left. It's not hard to find something to brace the gun to pump against.

I've seen them before.. in fact my former work place had one on the air powered greese drum set up that held 30 gallons of greese.. I never got to use it.. but did watch a few that did.. was real handy & never came off till it was taken off..

Re: grease gun

Well, I hit spring maintenance time, and never found anything I'd consider a really good quality Mini Grease gun. I spent some time looking at several (ok, I spent way too much time looking at something as cheap and ubiquitous as a mini-grease gun) and came to the conclusion that I wanted one where the nozzle came out the side opposite the handle, rather than one that the nozzle came out through the handle. I like to keep a flexible hose on my gun, and none of the flexible hoses I found would fit through the slot in the handle.

Anyway, it was time, so I broke down and spent $10 on this Lumax 1172:



I've loaded exactly one 3oz tube, and lubed my JD x728 and all the zerks on the 62c mower deck. hardly a true test, but it has worked fine.

Re: grease gun

I'm grease gun poor (means I have too many), and nary one is worth a flip. Hey, grease gun making boys, I'd pay $100 for a STRONG well made hand squeeze grease gun, dagnabbit. I might try that one linked on MTF.
