Re: grease guns
 
There is a thread somewhere already, but I have one and it is the best grease gun I have used.
Good points: twice the grease volume per pump
Lock and lube connector is brilliant
Magnet is surprisingly useful
Never seems to get air locks
Dedicated cartridges are clean to change
Bad points: dedicated cartridges can be more expensive than standard, but unless you have a massive fleet cost difference is minimal
Gun is quite expensive to purchase
If I lost mine I would immediately buy another.

You talking about the Fuchs twin handle guns? I'd of had one if I didn't have a full box of standard cartridges left.. G-coupler and JCB gun does me fine for now!
