I'll blame this one on Tim Marks :good2: :gizmo:

Really - even with a pistol grip grease gun - it can still sometimes be tricky to keep the gun on the zerk (and sometimes get it off too).

Looking forward to putting this guy into action Tool accessory

Other than a on-line order, we have no dealers locally.

Our local JD dealer sells these. Anyone own, or ever use one.
It's offered by Univer-Co.

Yes, I have one of these. I also have the Lock 'N Lube. The only flaw with this one is that if you have a sticky zerk that requires a lot of grease pressure this coupler can be nearly impossible to release. Unlike the Lock 'N Lube which releases easily no matter how much grease pressure is being exerted. That is the reason they had to come up with the grease pressure release valve. Which, the two combined is just too much of a contraption.

Other than that it works ok. If given a choice between it and the L'n'L my choice would be the Lock 'N Lube.

Thanks for the shout-out. I haven't tried my Lock-n-Lube XL yet. I'll do so soon.

I have both. The Univerco is compact, while the Lock-n-Lube regular is bulky. If I were to use the L-n-L exclusively I'd have to change a lot of Zerks from straight to 45 or 90 degrees.

Maybe I should look into whether a quick connect coupler is available for grease guns and keep two or three whips handy; one with the Univerco, one with the L-N-L, and one with the old-school PITA tip.

Thanks for the feed-back. Looks as though I'll have to order on-line.

I tried to find the link on your website, but it seems to be unusable??? Can you check it out?
Don't know, maybe I am doing something wrong.

This is what I see. All other links are viewable.

My thoughts exactly. :good2: I have two of the regular Lock N Lube couplers, they work very well. I haven't ran into a situation that would require the extended length one, but I have had a few times where anything longer than the standard wouldn't have fit.

I've seen the regular ones at our JD dealers and some Napa stores.

Does the regular Lock-n-Lube work on the grease fitting on the main drive shaft when approaching it from the bottom side and through the "black hole" on the 1025R?

Does the 1025R have one of those screwed up deals like the 2320? I would think that one "cluster" would be a learning experience for JD.

Possibly. I don't know about the 2320, but you can view Tim's video of the 1025R starting at the 9:02 mark and it will show you the difficulty of greasing this fitting for the front u-joint. I ended up drilling out the "black hole" several sizes bigger than original size, but it can be a wrist breaker if not careful. This made it much easier, but still a PITA.

Looks a bit easier than the 2320, but still too difficult for normal maintenance.

Excellent video, Tim.:thumbup1gif:

I had a chance to get the XL on the grease gun tonight and grease the FEL and B260 on the 1025R. It's great for straight on shots. On the backhoe I almost could not get it on the zerk in the lower joint of the dipper - the one that sits behind the bucket curl cylinder. I think ideally you'd have a angled end to get at that one. There are other zerks on the backhoe that are 'set in' and the XL was perfect for those with its extended reach. All the FEL zerks are pretty much straight on - no issues there. Really nice to have it hang on the zerks - no mess. :bigthumb: I just got the 1025R end of March so I haven't had to venture down under to the drive shaft zerk yet. If the normal LnL doesn't fit I'd be pretty confident the XL won't either. I like the idea of enlarging the hole just enough to get it in there though - don't think it'd take much!

I would definitely be interested in your results when you get to greasing the drive shaft, especially the front one with the "black hole".
