ASSEMBLY: First you have to attach the high pressure grease hose to the head of the gun, making sure you use the supplied copper gasket before tightening down. Then, you have to attach your inlet coupler to the bottom of the handle, making sure that you use teflon plumbers tape on the coupler threads.

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.

I bought this gun after being disappointed in 2 of the Craftsman pneumatic grease guns. Both were supposed to be "shop" quality but they weren't even close to the Lincoln.

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!

I have seen reviews that complain about different things being wrong with certain products. This is my first Lincoln Grease Gun. I have had several generic guns but they seem to fail after a short time. This Gun is outstanding. I had to replace the quick disconnect because the one that came with the gun was not the same as the one I used(Just took it off the old Gun). Put the hose on the gun and tighten the fittings, add your grease and your in business. The 2ft hose is great for those hard to reach places. I was supprised to find this gun works automatic. Pull the trigger and it pumps grease until you release it. Very happy with this purchase.

I gave up on a cheaper gun that gave me fits with air pockets and purging them. This gun was terrible for the first cartridge, but has not had an issue at all since that first one. All changes since have gone without a hitch. 20 minutes of frustration was guaranteed with each cartridge change with the older gun. I have read on here that some people have issues with the gun "firing" every 2 seconds as long as it is connected to an air source. The grease gun uses an O ring in the valve which is very susceptible to dirt in the air line. I fixed that issue too. The grease gun will not misfire unless there is a leak in the valve, which means dirt. It is a great gun and removed a lot of frustration for me.

Lincoln really improved this model over the previous #1163 gun. This one loads the same but has a hand operated bleed off to get rid of air in the gun after replacing the grease cartridge. Additionally the path of the grease does not go through the spring loaded check valve which was a problem with the former model. I have not had any problems with the 1162 so far and I really like it.
