    I won't call it a piece of junk since most people seem to be happy with it. But in my case I used it to top off a new ball joint and the next time I took it out it was dead. Just keep pumping it no responce.

    It's ok to use for greasing bushings but it is very messy. Grease comes out through the joints. It does not deal properly.

          Lubed entire auto and zero-turn lawnmower chassis with no problems. I was worried the hand grip would not have the pressure needed, but like all of them, keep the tip on straight and it works great!

                        I have never used a grease gun before. I picked it up to grease the driveshafts on my newly acquired 4runner. The instructions were spot-on. It was a little hard to get the plunger into the grease tube, but I finally got it after a couple minutes. When you hold this product, you feel like you bought a quality item. It was easy to use and I had to problems with it.

                            A:

                            Rotate counter clockwise, unscrew head cap from gun barrel. Due to lack of lubrication on the rubber plunger, new grease guns may be difficult to load with grease cartridges the first time. Apply a liberal coating of grease to plunger when using gun for the first time. This grease gun requires a 14 oz grease cartridge. Draw the handle back fully so that the plunger rod catches and locks into place. After removing the plastic cap from the 14 oz grease cartridge, apply a small amount of grease to the inside edge of the cartridge. This will make insertion of the plunger easier. Push grease cartridge into the gun barrel completely, until metal edge tightly seals top of the grease gun barrel. Detach flip-top seal from cartridge. Screw on head cap approximately two turns, being sure not to tighten. Release plunger rod from its locked position and push in. Push on plunger rod handle to force plunger into cartridge. At the same time, pump the lever or handle to release trapped air. When grease comes through vents and the head of the gun, fully the head cap to the barrel. As soon as the gun in pumping grease, carefully depress the lock release and push the plunger rod the rest of the way into the gun.
