    Cordless grease guns

    I've been using sealy ones, but like everything cordless the batteries wont hold charge beyond a day or so now that the thing is about a year old

    Anyone recommend any other units or is this one rated as one of the better ones ?

    Here is my trusty Sealy cartridge unit.

    I bought some new batteries for it as its done a hell of a lot of work.

    And as a result I found out that the problem wasnt the batteries .. its the chargers not juicing them up properly

    Got a Dewalt 20V lithium Ion its been really good to me so far I've had it for about 2 years. I have heard however that Milwaukee is the way to go you can select how many squirts of grease on it and won't over pump that. But I am content with what I got.

    certainly seems to be the consensus of opinion where ever you look
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!

    I'll stick with a regular half hour with my Alemite pump actions ..... they never go flat ... just empty .... and always work with a new stick inserted
