I was curious to see what grease guns everyone uses? I have one of those lincoln cordless grease guns that I had bought when I had my own tractor trailer. There is a lot of greasing to do on a big truck and I wasn't about to pump it by hand. I could have gotten an air powered one but I didn't want to spend the money.

I'm not really shure what brand I have. Its one that you pump by hand though. I'll have to check it out

Junker from Harbor Freight. Couldn't even load a tube till I used a bench grinder & carefully removed some rubber off the perimeter of the push grommet. Works great now, but next time I'll spend some bucks for a good one.

Which ever one has some grease in it....I have about 3, every time I go to use one....about 2 pumps and it needs filling.

Got a Crafsman Professional air operated one, works great. Also have a hand pump one that I got out of JC Whitney probably 30 years ago and it still works like new.

Anyone try a battery operated one. Thinking about getting one but have never tried one or know any one who has one.

To really tell the truth of which gun I use......any of them that actually has grease IN them! LOL Edited to add: Poncho beat me to that line! BTW...heard GREAT feedback on the Lincoln battery powered guns.

I have three side lever guns. One with a hose and two with a rigid tube. One of the rigid tube guns has hi-temp grease for the mower mandrels.

I have a Plews brand side lever grease gun with the flex hose on it. I have had it for quite a while and am happy with it.

I use a pistol grip gun I got from Orschelens a few years back, works great.
