    Does anyone out there use an air powered grease gun as opposed to the manual pump kind.If so,do they work ok or should I stick wth the traditional kind. Thanks for any help.

    We use an air operaterated grease gun and we like it a lot. It is the lincoln brand and takes the same size cartridge that the full size hand ones take. It cost around $70.00 and I think it was well worth it but I also keep a hand one around to use on fittings that you can't get to with the fixed end.

    I thought you could get the flexible tubes on the air grease guns along with the fixed??

    We have both
    The air powered is great and with the flex hose your have no problem.
    Home Depot have them for about 25.00 but you may get what you pay for

    I got an air power gun from Auto Zone for $30.00 with flex hose. Works good, got 2 years on it, not much can break on them.

    They work good. Cheap ones are about $20.00 Can spend alot more. We like them more than hand pumps.

    Well, I got my new air grease gun today and like it a lot. With my bum shoulder I had problems greasing, but not now. I got one at Auto Zone and it was $35 for the Lincoln. It so happened my new DC was due for a grease job, so I tried it out as soon as I got it filled up. :)
