    Grease Gun Tech in CC...

    Not so much tech, but recommendations. Who TF makes a grease gun that actually works in the long-term? I finished my IFS rebuild today and went to lube everything up, only to find that not only did my pneumatic gun not want to do anything but make air noises, but my old manual pump gun shit the bed as well.

    I go through way too many grease guns do to shitty manufacturing. Who actually makes one that I can lube everything I own, put it away, and then break it out again in 3-6 months and find it still working?
    Mrs CSR said I was good, or something.

    I have a cheap manual one I bought at Lowes a few years back. I use it maybe 3-4 times a year. No issues...

      M18 fuel is what was recommended on the other forum when this came up.

      I personally use and recommend the lockNlube gun and fittings. It’s a manual pump gun.

        Is this a serious thread?


        Milwaukee has been established as the only grease gun

          I can't answer the long term part, but I've had this dewalt for about 2yrs and love. The long hose is really nice, you can lay under your rig, lay it near you, and reach the hose up wherever you want under your rig. Probably been through 8-9 tubes mostly from other people borrowing it, everybody thats used it loves it. You can even refill it from 55gal drum

              I have two Lincolns, they have never given me problems. I don't grease enough to warrant an electric tool.

              What I do, is I pull the back lever all the way out and lock it when I store them. I usually store them in a plastic bag, JUST in case they leak. But generally they don't.

                Doesnt sound like you need an electric one.
                For manual ones Ive been through probably 15 different ones that either stop working or get smashed somehow. The best one Ive owned is one I picked up at a Deere dealership that has never missed a beat. No idea who makes it, but its good quality.

                  Lincoln for manual ones. You can buy all the parts for them if you ever fuck them up too.

                    Lincoln pistol grip manual, and a cordless one in whatever color you like best. Cordless gets a lock and lube, manual gets a 90* fitting so you can grease your pitman and idler arms. And then I like having a separate gun for synthetic grease that I use in ujoints. Everything steering wise gets valvoline Ford/Lincoln/mercury grease

                      I just replaced a pile of shit China gun with a new Lincoln hoping it lasts more that six months like the last 3.

                        Before the old pirate thread got axed someone recommended a caterpillar gun and a few others jumped in to back it up. Anyone have that info? If I remember correctly there were a couple of part numbers listed in the thread.

                            I'll second the Lock-N-Lube. My employees can fuck up an anvil, so I skipped the M18. They seem happy with the LnL, and we're going through more grease than with the pistol guns before. I'm assuming they're greasing more often since it's easier.

                              I have been let down by a Lincoln that I got from Napa a couple times in the last six or so years. I finally broke down and bought a Milwaukee and lube lock tip. Holy shit what a game changer. Stubborn fitting? gonna learn today
