    Right... to eliminate the mess of a standard grease gun I'm going to hand-fill empty Lube Shuttle tubes from a bulk container. I wonder who sells rubber gloves by the 1000-pack.

    Seriously, I've never found changing grease cartridges to be as much of a mess as actually USING the grease gun. :-)

There is always a little blob of grease sticking out this hole and it drips down onto the shelf where the gun sits. Don't get me wrong, I love how it works but it's just as messy as the rest. The only advantage is it has that big handle so you don't have to hold it by the barrel.
    That hole is the bleed off hole if you press the little black knob in the front.

    Supposedly it helps prime the pump if it won't prime, never had to use it so far.

    Since you're getting leakage from the cartridge, are you using JD polyuria based grease?

    I've never had that trouble with the Lithium base.

    Also I pickup the gun laying on its' side to be able to fit in a moisture proof plastic container.

    Yes, SD Polyurea is what I use. I notice the leakage mostly during the summer months when it gets very hot in the storage building.

    I've never had that trouble with the Lithium base.
    Interesting... might have to try a tube of that.

    I just have mine sitting upright on a shelf.

    For my part, I never use polyurea. Or moly for that matter. I'm strictly a lithium complex kind of guy and I never get weeping on any of my grease guns. As for that M18 grease gun...it's awesome. The new crop of Milwaukee M18 batteries last am amazing long time. So much so that I've gone to the CP 3.0's because they're so much lighter.

    Watch out if you swap to a Lithium base, everything I've read about grease, it's not good to be swapping from a Polyuria base to
    a Lithium base or vice versa continually.

    Try to keep with one type and stick with it.

    Before I got the Deere equipment I was using NAPA Lithium base grease and never had a problem with it.

    Been using the 5 Ah battery on my M18, can grease the 4066r, backhoe and loader and it doesn't come off the 4 LED
    full charge indicator.

    That's a good point. JD lists the following characteristic for the SD Polyurea but does NOT list it as a characteristic of the Lithium Complex grease.

    – Compatible with most other typesof grease.

    Not a problem for me since lithium complex is the only grease I use for anything/everything.

    any grease is better than none.

    I fight this issue when greasin the excavater vs tractor......tie rods vs ex stress points.

    grease often and it all works out.

    grease never and pay the price.

    I went through this recently myself.
    From a TON of searching, I came to the conclusion that either Lincoln or Alemite were the top of the heap.
    Then I found out that the Deere professional grease gun is made by Alemite, but cheaper than buying an Alemite grease gun.
    I now own two of them. One for the JD Polyurea and one for the JD HD Moly.
    Deere part number TY26689
    If you are staying away from battery guns, as I am, even though I LOVE Milwaukees 18V stuff, the Deere is the way to go.
