    Gotta go with Lincoln. The crane I'm oiling on right now has about 80-90 grease zerks, I wouldn't want anything other than the 14 volt Lincoln I have at my disposal to get the greasing done.

    All you guys are pansies, or should I say all you "girlies" are pansies.

    Don't forget to wear your pretty pink dresses and apron while holding those electric grease guns.

    lincoln here although I think the plastic is way to brittle I put the gun under my arm so I could use both hands to get the hose on and when I flexed some to hold on I broke the handle right off. other then that its worked great but the battery has died now and the replacements are $80 which is a rip off but theres nothing you can do about it

    The pump handle isn't so great when you've got a 24" hose extension, and you need to keep one hand on the nozzle because the hose is wrapped around three things that would obstruct a normal grease gun. I don't know how you use the lever with one hand.
    That's what they make trigger guns for, but those are just a pain.
    I use an air powered one myself, but can certainly see the advantage to cordless when it comes to portability,
