High Capacity Cordless Grease Gun

"It works twice as fast as any other cordless grease gun on the market, yet requires only about half as much effort to use," says Dick Kluge, Groton Enterprises, Groton, S. Dak., about the new Alemite 575 12-volt cordless grease gun. He's a dealer for the product and exhibited it at the recent Fort Wayne, Ind., farm show.
  The unit weighs 6.8 lbs. and comes with a dual 12-volt battery and a 36-in. long super flexible rubber hose. It delivers grease under high pressure - up to 6,500 psi - at a high flow rate of 5 1/4 oz. per min. at 1,000 psi. It can be loaded either by replacing the 14 oz. cartridge or with a bulk fill hose.
  "Its weight is balanced nicely which makes it easy to use. And it works fast," says Groton. "It takes only about four minutes to pump out a cartridge of grease. Pull the trigger once and you get one shot of grease. Holding the trigger will cause it to pump a steady stream of grease.
  "You can get six cartridges out of each battery charge. You can use one battery while you're charging up the other one. By the time you pump six cartridges of grease the other battery will be charged up."   
  Sells for $219 plus S&H.
