Works like a champ. Did not work until figured out how to prime the unit. To all the ones that gave it one star Gun will not prime properly when restricted 1) remove hose\ tube with nozzle 2) install cartridge 3) connect air supply 4) operate trigger to eject grease 5) install preferred output connection Enjoy a great tool
I have gone thru no less than 6 of these craftsman grease guns in the past 2 years. I am not a dummy when it comes to tools, but these guns will drive you nuts. I started out with the $29 one and now I am on my 3rd hd continuous gun. I have wasted more grease than I have used from these guns. I followed the directions and also went on line for feedback. Still problems to get in to work continuously. I do not understand why the center rod will go up the cylinder, but the plunger, oval piece, will not push the grease. The one I am using now worked when I put it away, however I will know better when I go to use it again.
Overall, I am happy with this Grease gun. So far, it seems to work quite well. The hose is flexible enough to get into tight places, but stiff enough to hold its shape. The handle is comfortable. It is a good grease gun.
It works and it is conveient. No issue priming it. Just understand how to use the bleader at the top of the gun to let the air out when first priming. However, the first grease gun I bought was broken out of the box. The grease cartridge was cross threaded onto the head stock. Not sure if that was someone else messing with it in the store, or if it happened at the factory when they boxed it. Either way, it didn't stay together. When I got the new one on an exchange, I can totally see how easy it is to cross thread this thing. It isn't the highest quality. My manual grease gun I own is pretty heavy duty and I can see the difference in weight of guns compared to each other. But if you take it easy on this thing, you should hopefully be fine.
This grease gun works very well and it was a awesome price and. Very easy to use and doesn't keep pumping grease after releasing the trigger.
Have not used enough to give a honest report but did great job greasing excavator & tractor. Price was right & store pick up is even better.Quality of grease gun was better than I expected. I used a standard tube of grease..no problems in loading or operation.
