    Dewalt Grease Gun

    Well, I finally bought a Dewalt battery grease gun. I got the one with the 20v max 4 AH battery and so many of you like the Lock n Lube so I got one of them also.

    I got a different brand, but you are going to enjoy that sucker every time you use it.

    Haven't touched my hand guns in a couple of years.

    I purchased a Milwaukee cordless grease gun a while back. Don't get me wrong, it is nice but.... there is one thing about a powered grease gun that I don't like. You no longer have any "feel" for the grease. Now before you say "That's stupid"... I've always used one of the lever style grease guns where you have a nice long stroke with a lot of pumping power. When working a manual grease gun you can "feel" the grease going in. You can tell when a zerk is taking grease freely and you can tell when there is resistance due to maybe a partially plugged zerk or the tolerances being too tight on the pin being lubricated. This feel is completely lost with a powered grease gun.

    Also, with a manual grease gun you know immediately when you run out of grease. With a powered grease gun, unless the zerk is one that takes a lot of pressure to grease, the pump in the gun makes the same noise whether grease is coming out or not. This isn't so much of an issue when greasing points that you can SEE when grease starts oozing out. But for blind grease joints where you can't see the grease you're never sure if it's going in there or not.

    Odd counterpoint I know. :-)

    On my "wish list" I've been switching to 20v lithium battery DeWalt tools after most of my DeWalt 18 volt batteries have failed. But they are very old some dated back to 1999. Last I bought are from 2012

    Point well taken, the only critical *blind* joints I have are on the Z Trak blade spindles, I give all three 6 shots every
    20 Hours.
    Give a test hit before I start and another test hit when I'm done with all three, you lose maybe an inch or so of grease, but
    you can feel pretty sure you pumped grease.
