Foot-Operated Grease Gun Works Fast, Eliminates Mess
The unit is equipped with the LockNLube grease coupler and a pressure release foot pedal. A 6 1/2-ft. long hose comes standard, with longer hoses available. A unique 2-stage pump creates a wave action in the grease, eliminating air locks.
“The combination of a pressure return valve and a check valve on the LockNLube coupler gives you near waste-free disconnection,” says Barnes. “You simply lift the pedal to relieve back pressure and return grease to the canister.”
The LockNLube grease gun coupler comes with a sliding sleeve that’s activated by a thumb lever. The unit’s 4 spring-steel jaws lock onto the grease zerk. With the jaws locked onto the zerk a leak-proof seal is created, preventing the coupler from coming loose and breaking the seal, says the company. Activating the trigger releases the coupler from the zerk.
“The tool’s design doesn’t require a messy follower plate, and there are no troublesome seals to replace. A clip-on lid keeps rain and dust out, and the carry handle hinges away for easy filling,” says Walton. “No external power source or batteries is required. The grease gun is industrial strength, and able to pump at more than 10,000 psi.”
Sells for $295 including S&H.
