INSTALLING GREASE CARTRIDGES: First, remove the pump head from the grease cylinder. Second, pull the grease loader (Also called follower) all the way back and then lock it into place. The side which has the simple pull off cap, that end goes into the grease cylinder. Then you pull off the sardine like lid, and then screw down the pump head onto the grease cylinder. Then you release the grease loader.
PRIMING: Every time you install a new grease cartridge, you have to prime the gun. The quick way to prime, is to operate the gun slowly, until grease flows out of the coupler. If that does not work, you may have air pockets in the system. The manual recommends that you open the filler valve on the pump head by two turns out, holding the gun with the discharge hose pointing up. Then you close the filler valve once the air has been removed.
OPERATING: To operate, attach the coupler at the end of the high pressure hose, to a zerk fitting. As you depress the trigger, air enters the chamber, which pushes the piston with the plunger. The grease that is under pressure from the plunger, opens the check valve and delivers one shot of lubricant. The more you depress the trigger, the faster this process operates, thus increasing grease flow. The gun is designed to have a full speed limit, as to limit damage to bearing seals and dust boots.
EXPERIENCE: I think this gun weighs a bit much, but it has to be constructed of durable metals, in order for it to be commercial built.Read more ›
I've been using this gun daily for about a month and so far it has been great (I'm in the lift truck repair business). Nice heavy duty design that's made in the USA! The continuous variable flow trigger works just as advertised. They say it's rated up to 6000PSI but I have mine regulated at 80 right now (separate regulator required). I've used it at 150PSI a couple times for those plugged fittings and it cleared them right out. I would recommend a regulator just to be on the safe side. I wouldn't hesitate to use it at up to 120 or 130 PSI regularly, I just don't need to.
The seal quality inside the tube is the best I've seen. There is no grease seepage past the seal and into the lower chamber. The plunger is clean each time I refill.
I really have nothing negative to say about the gun. You might think it's expensive but if you use a grease gun often, it'll pay for itself easily. Better than continually buying inferior guns and trying to save a buck. Believe me, I've been there.
One tip on the refills; to avoid losing the prime, I always pack the tube receptacle area (where the tube screws into the gun assembly) with a dollop or two of grease so it's flush with the end of the threads. You may get a bit of overflow as you screw down the tube but you won't get any air pockets. Worth the small mess to me.
Now that you've read the review, put it in your cart and be done with buying grease guns!

Worth every penny of the price- works fast and easy. It is noticeably heavier than my old 1950's style grease gun, but really can out-grease your fittings. Read morePublished 11 days ago by dct
