Milwaukee has the best warranty, 2 years on the battery, 5 years on the tool itself.

Right after that guy invented sliced bread, he invented the cordless grease gun. :thumbs:

 

We've got an Alemite, and it's been pumping away for about 10 years or more.

Never a problem, other then every time I go to use it, there's no grease in it.

I guess that's a good problem. Stuff is getting greased.

Buy the Milwaukee. We have had all but the DeWalt which came out after the Milwaukee. The Milwaukee kicks butt.

I have an older Lincoln model that I picked up used from a friend when he splurged on a brand new Snap On grease gun, about a week later he was asking for the Lincoln back... I guess his new one just didn't push the same pressure. I love mine but it's the only one I've ever used so I can't make any comparisons. I haven't had any issues with the battery yet but I'm also very careful with it and I could see how issues would develop as the battery latch isn't very robust. Mine will easily go through more than a tube of grease on a charge and that battery is several years old. With that being said though if I was buying new I'd look for one with a lithium ion battery. They're pricey but well worth it imo. My cordless drill and impact driver seem to go forever on a charge and the batteries only take 15 minutes to charge so with two batteries you're always in business.

I briefly tried out a co-workers Milwaukee tonight. Lots of bulk, lots of power, lots of volume.

 

The Rural King sale is for the 12 volt Milwaukee, not the 18, if it matters.

Just ordered the Milwaukee grease gun.  I've greased a ton lately, so time to make things easier & faster.  Some I could hardly reach, and trying to pump one handed was difficult to say the least in the positions I was in.

Well, the package arrived, but it's not a grease gun!  It's an Igloo cooler on wheels!  I called the company & I have no doubt they will make the correction & get my grease gun to me.  The guy was as country as could be, we even talked of rolling hay.  He's gonna call me back here in a little bit.

Hmmm? Do they think you need to chill a bit?

Guy called me right back.  He'll issue a call tag for the cooler & get me my grease gun right out.  He was worried packages got switched & somebody else got the grease gun, but wasn't the case, as all 21 guns in his stock were accounted for.  Real nice guy & I'll leave him all positive feedback once the gun actually gets here. LOL

No, but would have been nice!  They sell the cooler for $50.  By the time they paid the shipping both ways, they spent almost it's worth.  Was a BIG box.
