"Caddy" Cleans Up Grease Gun Mess
The "Dobel Grease Gun Caddy" holds two tubes of grease and a gun. It's made from heavy gauge steel tubing and can be mounted in the shop or on a tractor, combine or other farm equipment.
"It's easy to accidentally step on a tube of grease in the tractor cab or slip on grease that oozed from a dropped tube on your shop floor," says John Bellamy who, along with Joe Dobyanski, invented the caddy. "Some-times you can't remember exactly where you left the grease gun and eventually find it buried underneath chains or other things in the tractor cab, or rolling around in your truck box. Other times, you go to the field, start to grease up a machine for the day, only to find the gun empty after a couple of pumps, and no more tubes nearby.
"The Caddy is a quality, durable product that will last indefinitely. The bottom of each tube is covered with expanded metal mesh so dirt and water can fall through," Bellamy said. "A mounting bracket is part of the construction and each one comes with bolts and sheet metal screws for mounting."
The caddy is available in a variety of col-ors to match customers' equipment. There are a number of different models, from the economy model, which has storage spaces for a grease gun and one cartridge, to the shop model, which holds two guns and five grease cartridges. They can also be custom built to hold more guns and tubes if the customer desires, according to Bellamy.
Standard model sells for $24.95 (Canadian); shop model for $29.95.
