    I need a grease gun. Any recommendations?

    I just bought a new 1025R a few months ago. I only have 12 hours on it, but I know that I'll need to grease the fittings sooner than later. What grease gun do you guys recommend. I see the LockNLube commercials all the time. Is the LockNLube Professional Pistol-Grip Grease Gun as good as they say?

    The lock n lube tip is a no brainer....get one...Yes its worth it.

    If your tooled up for De Walt or Milwaukie cordless tools....Get one of the cordless gg's

    I have the De walt....Works great.
    I'd have rather bought Milwaukie but DW was on sale and I needed a new battery anyway.

    Can't go wrong with either. AND its the season they will go on sale SOON.

    What I don't like in the cordless is the ability to "feel" how the fitting is taking grease.

    There are times I revert to the oldschool hand pump guns...I have about a dozen scattered about the sheds & barns.

    Some dedicated to certain greases...Corn Head ,The gooey orange stuff for excavater ,Red ,Black...and some others .


    The LNL tip is so far ....perfect.

    I was looking at the Dewalt 20V cordless grease gun. I already have a lot of their tools and a variety of batteries. Maybe that's the way to go, huh? As you suggested, I can add the LockNLube coupler for a better setup.

    I got my DW for 99 bux iirc...it works for a long time with the 2.0 battery.

    Now they have them on sale with a plastic case..and whatever else.

    Its got a nice long hose...put my LNL tip on it.

    Now the only downer I've encountered.....the tip needs a swivel as the LNL lever ended up in an odd position and is sometimes akward to pull on lever and have it clear whatever ( loader frame ,excavater hoses...etc).

    I think theres a new fix for this someone posted recently. Somesort of swilel dealiO

    Otherwise...you will be way happy if your tooled up for DW.

    I bought it ..( my only 20 v tool) and the adapter to run the 20v batts on all my 18v stuff.

    18v batteries are still running 99 bux and I'm not playing that game...can get 2 of the 20v for 80 or less .


    Ohh....the spring on the DW GG is one beast...I've had Jr. open it up the 2 times we've changed grease tubes.

    I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. I have a couple manual grease guns and a Milwaukee M18 gun - all with LnL couplers. I prefer the lever type instead of the pistol grip. There is something satisfying about the "feel" of grease smoothly flowing into the zerk confirming that everything is free and clear. :-)

    I've had the best luck with the Workforce heavy duty grease guns that Tractor Supply sells.

    I admit that it would be nice to have a battery operated grease gun and I have both DeWalt and Milwaukee stuff. But there just is not enough grease zerks, nor the need to grease often enough, to justify the cost. I have 2 JD grease guns and and a Plews grease gun. I have the Lock&Lube on one of the JD guns and a swivel nozzle on the other. One has the rubber hose. That lets me pretty much get to anything I need. However, one of the JD guns is the pistol grip and it is difficult to operate as it takes more hand strength. I would not recommend it. The Plews grease gun is used only to put cheap grease in gear boxes that tend to leak gear oil.

    If I may say get a pair of glasses before you grease a ujoint. Have had a few (not on the tractor so far) that squirt grease as the seal let's the grease escape. Much easier to wash the glasses then the eye. Tho to be honest some grease is still a bugger to get off glasses.

    Greasing a JD SCUT drive train is very awkward. It’s hard to lie on the ground to get the U joints and try to manipulate a lever-type grease gun underneath the tractor. The Milwaukee makes all that a lot simpler. LockNLube tip is a must, however.
