Lumax claims their PneuLuber pneumatic grease gun is the only dual-piston air-powered grease gun and that it can empty a grease tube in less than a minute. Street pricing is about $180. The PneuLuber features trigger-controlled variable-speed grease delivery along with an “instant” brake, both of which keep this tool from being a grease-fountain mess-maker of doom — but they also seem to indicate that speed isn’t really the point.
Fourteen ounces of grease in under one minute: Maybe I’m missing something, but, unless you’re on a race team working in the pit, is there any reason to own a high-speed grease gun? For that matter, has anyone timed the speed of a hand-powered grease gun?
A powered grease gun I can understand — on any job that uses a grease gun all day it could prevent lawsuits over handshake accidents — but how important is fast greasing? Let us know in comments.
