Grease Joint Rejuvenator
Have you ever tried to grease a joint on a piece of equipment but couldn’t? No one could tell me why so I took off the blade from my 650G Dozer and examined every problem joint. Hardened grease and dirt in the bushings’ relief slots were the culprits! Heat and dirt had dried up the grease and clogged up the relief slots. No amount of pressure on the grease fitting would push the new grease into the joint.

    The Grease Joint Rejuvenator opened up the joint in a minute! I filled the tool with light penetrating oil, burped the air out, and attached the coupler to the grease fitting. Tapping the piston of the tool with a hammer forced the light oil into the joint, allowing the relief slots to open and push out the old, dried up grease. Then the new grease went in effortlessly.
