    I ponderd this for a while. I ended up purchasing the Dewalt 20 v lithium model. The only problem i see is that greasing is so easy and enjoyable now that my grease consumption has gone way up. I never should of waited so long.

    I spotted this at a trade show the other day.. For the price, thought it would be worth a try.
    They suggest using it with a little impact driver but I find it works smoother and faster with a drill.
    Kinda gimmicky and clumsy to set up but once you get rolling it works OK.

    I was running production loader. I had a fresh 980G Cat reman. Greasing after shift every night with a Lincoln hand gun wasn't getting it. About 2 tubes into new bushings was cutting right into my continuing investigation of the best barley sodas. The company purchased Lincoln 1844 18 volts for us. I had it for about 6 months and a little smoke rolled out of the top of it and it was done. Liked it very much till it died. I bought a 18 volt 10,000 pound Milwaukee. It was a good gun however the batteries did not last very long. I gave that to a guy that was working with me. I bought a 10,000 pound Dewalt about 3 years ago. It was pricey, with 3 4 Ah bats, it was just south of 600 including shipping. In my experience and speaking for me only, it is the best electric gun I have had. I added a Lock and Lube fitting to it as well. Generally it will pump through the toughest zerk. Occasionally I may have to wiggle something to get it to take grease. The downside is that it is heavy by comparison and it can't get wet. If you put it in a a plastic bag to use in the rain it will start to heat up. I put about 3 grease rags over it now when its raining seems to be fine. A battery seems to last about a week I bought three and rotate them just to space out the charging cycles. I suspect this gun will last into retirement and beyond.

    I have the milwaukee 18v fuel with hard case... it's OK. I mainly got it because I was switching my cordless tools from dewalt after a bunch of them got stolen :( I still like my alemite but the batteries are finally giving up so on to newer and better :) Have used it quite a few times and it seems to work good... plenty of pressure fairly quick and the tube cylinder makes it easy to thread unlike some guns where if you're in an odd position trying to change tubes it can take a while... I remember a there were a few things I didn't like about it... but can't recall them right at this moment...
