Bought one of the Lock N Lube tips. Greasing is kinda finished for now but will report back when I get some use on it. Comes with an extra seal which is nice and made in South Africa.....so the guys from SA will hear about it if this thing is junk too. Ha Ha

We have one of those lock and lube ends and they are awesome though a little big to get at some u-joints . The thing that I like is that if you get a zerk that won't take grease and the hose is full of pressure you can take the coupler off by releasing the lever . We had another make where you had to slide the outer barrel up to release the pressure and you couldent move it .

These things are worth every penny. The only way they could be better would be if they were a little smaller in diameter to fit into some tight places.

I bought the better quality Milwaukees which pump fast and you can set the number of strokes. The batteries are lasting amazing. I think one day I pumped 6 tubes with the same battery! My old Flexi-coil loves the 50 strokes on the castor wheels and I can administer that in 20 seconds - I could never go back to Lincoln (maybe different now) where about a tube and a half and you are looking for another battery and 2 minutes for 50 strokes!


The nice thing about the Milwaukee is that it has a "crutch" for us old fools that still crawl around and grease things underneath vehicles and equipment. At my age, it sure helps saves my knees and gives me a place to lean my hand when I pull the trigger on it and maintain my balance. The built in crutch is the best part of it! (See Crutch in picture!)

The 18v Milwaukee also wins my admiration but mine has a one-off problem I’ll bet.
If not using it fairly steady even a full battery will act totally dead with switch activation. The cure is battery removal and instant replacement, same battery, Poof, it works again. Annoying at best.
But love it for the two speeds/pressure settings and pump count settting in addition to the other features others mention.

As usual such a well thought out and engineered product ain’t cheap.

I just wonder what weird **** affects mine?!

I did notice that the work light sometimes failed to go off and I do the same - remove the battery. It doesn't seem to always stay on - not sure of why but the battery life is excellent otherwise.

Having good luck with the Lock N Lube tip so far. It is a little bigger so not going to get into tight spots and kind of requires a bit of cleaning on the backside of the tip because the jaws grab right around the rear of the tip. But you can load that 18V Milwaukee right up to stall and then simply squeeze the release trigger and it comes right off no problem.

It looks longer than the original Lock and Lube tip. I wonder how that improves access in tighter areas? Maybe it's smaller in diameter so it can reach in at an angle?
