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
I have been using the old stile gun's for years thought it was time to change and update to this Air grease gun . Save's me time and now I don't have to have 3 hands to hold it in place and pump it at the same time.Plus you get the Flex line that I do use.
I purchased this for general maintenance on my Kubota bx tractor and three Ford pickup trucks. Works like a charm, flex hose makes it easy to get into tight locations.
Works great, better than any of the grease guns Snap-on sells, and cost a lot less. Also comes with 2 foot flexible hose.
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
Operates well,hose is handy for some positions.
I purchased this product on 10/20/14. Took it back on 10/28/14. Could not get it primed, so called self priming doesn't work. Unfortunately I exchanged it for another just the same. It didn't work either. I'll be taking it back, but getting my money back instead.
very good product
This product should also include a flexible head.
I bought this item for 45 bucks which was comparable to grease guns over 80-90 dollars.
The only way this gun will work if if you do not use a cartridge.
Don't waste your money on this item it is a piece of junk! This thing stopped working after 3 shots of grease, you could hear the the pump locked up. I returned this and was given a replacement, and sure enough after the first shot the end of the hose blows off and then this one wouldnt stop shooting grease. Had to return and am now on the third one, wont even take this piece of **** out of the box.
this thing will not prime I tried for over an hour then the threads on the tube stripped out and greese all over the place except in the trucks what a joke sears stop making this thing
