    Yep, I've had a Lincolin 12V gun for about 2 years now and I still find it's ease of use very nice. Very handy tool indeed.

    Battery operated are AWESOME. I have 3 tractors to grease and as you can imagine I go thru a lot of grease. I was totally impressed.
    Get it on ebay. I know, I know, I hate ebay too, but the wife made me look and it was $200 in the store and I paid $64 for a brand new in the box one including shipping for one on ebay.

    ok, im sure alot of you are not going to agree with me on this, but I do not like our electric lincolin gun. We where at a farm show about 3 years ago when we bought our first one, and since then I have used it 2 times. I think there to heavy and clumsy when your under farm equipment. I guess a guy could shorten up the hose on it a bit, but even then, when you get one that wont take grease it just pushes it out the relief and by the time you realize it its all over you. I guess its alright when you are able to stand and grease something, but when im trying to crawl around under a truck or chisel plow Im going to stick to my good old hand pump gun!

    we have 3 lincoln 12v grease guns for all of our tractors, 36 row planter ( LOTS OF GREASE, 3 TUBES PER GREASE SESSION), combines, bulldozers, excavator, semi's. i haven't used a hand pump in YEARS. i think those are a lot more clumsy than the battery ones. One hand for the hose, one hand for the trigger, that simple. not having to find something to hold the hand pump against is well worth it.

    I agree. They are great for the greasing the dinky toys. Like the truck, small stuff, etc... but for the real stuff I find them unefficient and just use a hand pump. Our excavators take 3-4 tubes in the blink of an eye and by the time you get to the second one your battery seems low and it slows down.

    Pistol grip, lever type and 12v, they are all Lincoln's and they all serve a different purpose, but the 12v is my fav.

    Anybody know where to get a fitting so I can grease the center of my boss vee? All the boss vee plow owners will know what I am talking about. Each hindge section has a little hole to grease and there is a special fitting to use.

    I just use a needle fitting, it has a grease fitting on one end and a thick needle on the other end. You just put it on the end of any grease gun. You can buy them from most auto part stores or where you bought your grease gun from. They might have to order one in though.

    sometimes the Long ones are a little to small and they will bend easily.
    I use a short one that fits the hole on the Boss vertical hinge like a glove.
