I purchased this grease gun about 3 weeks ago. I work in a large shop and I got tired of looking for the grease barrel, rolling it all the way to my work stall, and getting stuck in the divots and uneven pavement on the way there. I have been using it daily and boy is it a time saver! It works as advertised. The best feature is the variable flow trigger. I can control the flow of grease and prevent overgreasing the fitting and making a mess unlike the grease barrel gun our shop has. I checked with Snap-On and the Blue Point equivalent of this gun is $120!!! What a deal at $49.99. It's been worth every penny. A few other guys in my shop are gonna buy one now that they've tried mine. I highly recommend this gun to anyone.
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.
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.
Bought this on sale for $25 at Sears. Been a very good little gun. I updated the pressure hose with a better hose from ************** and this now rivals my $300 pneumatic guns I have. Very pleased.
this gun seems to fail about right out the box... something isn't right, and no matter what you try is won't pass grease from the canister... almost like the mechanism is reversed flow... anyway, I've bought two of them, they both have failed... not trying again
