 Lubrication

I know I've seen a discussion about compressors, but I don't recall if any mention was made of a major benefit. An air powered grease gun! I just got my compressor fired up (60 gal, 6.5 hp (yeah right!)) and hooked up the grease gun I bought at Harbor Freight. FANTASTIC. It cuts my lube time by 4. No more trying to hold the gun between my knees so I can hold the nozzle on the zerk fitting while I pump the handle. I have a JD 755 w/ #7 back hoe so there are lots of fittings. For those of you with compressors I can't recommend this enough. The gun was only $16 dollars and looks identical to one I saw in the Grainger catalog for $56. Build quality is great and it uses the 14 once cartridges or bulk fill. If you don't have a compressor, this is great reason to get one. It runs anywere for 30 to 130 psi and really doesn't use any volume so I'd think even a very small one would work. No more reason to skimp on the all important grease PLUS I stayed much cleaner. Sorry this was so long, but I just had to share.

Pretty handy tool, aren't they, Jeff? $16 sounds like a bargain. They usually run $25 to $30 at places like Northern Tool, Tractor Supply Co., Gebo's, etc.
