Default Re: grease guns

Sean, the only way Dan's broke them is tracking over the top of them, Defo not worn out through Use.

I like the Alemite guns, tried the speedy grease gun which works but really needs to go back into the van each time or you end up with a broken gun and a shitty mess. Magnet is brilliant and it will work with standard cartridges but really you need the proper ones..... If your then going to Refill them it's a Pita and more time consuming than faffing with cartridges.
John Deere Sell screw on grease guns that work on suction.... I have one here and If we end up using grease loader buckets it's the way we will go. Unlike the Speedy and the Fuchs the cartridge is enclosed in the gun which stops it getting squashed in the digger toolbox. They also sell a Loader fitting that allows you to fill the cartridges off loader buckets in a far neater tidier way than alemite/standard guns. Other big plus is you have the storage capacity of cartridges with the cost benefit of a bucket and the cleanliness benefit of the Fuchs.

Each to there own. If you have the time and space to look after a Fuchs or Speedy then theres not so much issue. If it's going to get used and abused then Alemite is quality.
