    That sucker is kinda large in size. I use a Lincoln 12 v. and it has worked the last 3 years just fine. During winter I keep the grease and gun in the garage (which stays very warm) and have had no problems pumping. That gun to me would take up too much tool box room. I am sure Tim from Tool Time would have that one.

    Whats wrong with a regular grease gun you got two hands. A regular grease gun is reliable and its cheap. You wouldn't catch me spending 150 dollars for a grease gun when you can buy a good quality Lincoln manually operated gun with a 20 inch long hose on it. I used to grease 3 tandem gravel trucks front to back everyday and the rubber tired backhoe I operated.

    when your trying to hold it on the greese zerk with one hand as hard as you can and then trying to pump against the ground using your other hand your waisting time and energy. they are faster and easier to use. time is money and if you can get into that truck 10 min. sooner thats money in your pocket.
