Neat tool for DIY

If you do your own routine maintenance, crawling around under your rig (as I do) for oil changes, grease jobs, etc, here's a little beauty of a handy gadget for you .

It is a Milwaukee, battery powered, grease gun.

I saw one in use in Maine while some heavy equipment was being lubed up.
I found with the old manual hand pump grease guns, I sometimes was missing a badly needed third hand to hold the nozzle end onto the zerk fitting. And then I was making a big mess and not getting the job done anyway. If you own a Milwaukee drill you can use those drill batteries and charger for it's power.

This little hummer is great-

Max, that looks great, but I'm WAAAY too cheap to pay $129 for a grease gun!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Yep, as Ed-Sommers said, a pneumatic grease gun is the only way to go if you have a DP or access to a compressor, IMHO.

I have read that it is best to use a manual gun for repacking the bearings. Any one else have a comment about that?

Max: I agree!! - I've used a rechargeable grease gun for several years. Very handy, and it sure beats trying to hold the adapter on the zerk fitting and pumping the gun with your other two hands. No air hose to drag around. I did eventually replace the batteries.
Purchased from Harbor Freight, their Chicago brand and it cost about half the Milwaukee model. (2004 or 05 prices) I just checked their catalog and it's no longer available.
