A manual grease gun is a whole lot cheaper, about as easy to use, and they don't break down.

My other mowers get grease every oil change but Scag spindles call for 40 hours. The rest of the machine is 100-200 hours.
I guess you are comparing it to the units that have all sealed bearings, well that doesn't work too well. Not friendly.....you can get to every one t he zerts easily
And I guess you wouldn't like Walker very much... the best units have a lot of zerts. Try the Snapper WB S20 it is friendly.

But a manual one with a flex hose sometimes requires three hands (you know the zerks I'm talking about). A power one is easier with two

I will never get a walker, the only one I ever used was impossible to drive and stayed in disrepair. I do want to ask what grease do you use on your spindles? I'm assuming any high temp grease would work but not sure.
