The Lu Max mini pistol grip grease gun is a handy item for lubing my quad. I can reach under to the places that need it. Other then getting grease all over when the Follower rod came undone it was easy to install the cartridge. My hands are small so it's a little harder for me to get a good grip to squeeze the lever handle, but it works real good. A nice steady dollop of grease right where I need it to go.

Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun - Perfect for lubricating bearings in wheeled devices around the farm or shop. It's been years since I owned a car that had grease (zerc) fittings; and so never use my full-size grease gun . . . which has been gathering dust for 25 years. This handy-sized grease gun is a great size for small wheeled devices; hand trucks, wheelbarrows, and garden carts. One handed operation. Sometimes difficult to remove gun from fitting after lubrication. Comes complete, with one tube of grease. Can be filled with bulk grease. Simple assembly, but be sure to tighten all connections, or you may get seepage from joints. Made in China

I've typically kept a couple of full size manual grease guns around the shop. They are by their nature messy and typically kept in a box with a ziploc bag slipped over the zerk connection/business end. I even had a chrome plated pneumatic grease gun that I had to hook up to an air hose. It looked and worked beautifully--but was such a hassle to fire up the air compressor and drag out the air hose that I eventually stopped using it. In the last move I got rid of all my grease guns. They were just to much of a mess to pack. This mini pistol grip grease gun is just the right size to stow with my other automotive tools and isn't a mess. I've included a photo of how easy it was to use on my lawn tractor without all the hassle of the full size gun. Now for the mess. The instructions for loading the cartridge are backwards to what they should be. The open end does not go against the trigger plate that I am preloading with grease with my finger as per the instructions. The open end goes down the spring loaded tube. We had a glop of grease come out during assembly. Otherwise I'm pretty happy with the convenience of this mini gun. I don't think I'll need a full size grease gun ever again.

Good size and seems easy enough to use. However I am a total grease gun newbie and was expecting this to be a bit more user friendly. It was not clear how to load the grease into the tube. Be careful and plan it out well, or you will, like me have grease all over yourself and workbench. In the end I got it working, but did waste some of the grease in the process.

Tried out for the first time the Lumax LX1172 MINI Pistol grease gun. What a cool little tool to have in your arsenal. It does take much space so can be stored wherever you might need it. It has a great man size handle so is very controllable and good grip when your in tight spaces. Keep it in your boat for your outboard, in your truck for travel trailer, in the garage for motorhome, and lawn tractor too. Not messy at all and the grease gun cover is perfect. Great value for the end results. If you have zerts, it will fill it.

Some assembly required. You must assemble the extension and coupler to the head. I used some Teflon tape to ensure no leaks. The coupler comes with a plastic cap that is tethered to the extension, which is a nice bonus to me. The finish is average; painted steel barrel and cast aluminum head. I did notice a tiny burr in the inside beveled edge of the body which was binding the tube from being inserted fully. A small rounded file took care of that. The grease provided is a 3oz tube of “multi-use lithium grease”. This grease provided is not NLG rated, or rated by any other standard. Check your application for appropriate grease selection. Following the directions was simple enough to get going. Pack the head, insert cartridge, screw together and pump grease. This mini grease gun is perfect for smaller items or specialized use. I’m keeping it in my basement at my bench for my loading press which requires grease every few thousand cycles. It’s more sensible than using a large grease gun.

The Lumax Mini-Pistol Grip Grease Gun and 3 oz. cartridge was easy to assemble and use. I used this on my riding lawn mower to grease the wheel joints and steering gear. The fitting snapped very snug onto the 1/8-inch straight pipe thread grease fittings and when removed from the 1/8-inch grease fitting, I had to use a lot of force. To me this was a minor issue since you need a snug fit, so the tip stays locked in place due to the back pressure while applying the grease. I also used the Lumax Thermoplastic Grease Hose Spring and Grease Coupler 1/8-inch NPT Male Threads Fittings with an 18-inch Hose 4500 PSI accessory and it worked great.

The Lumax Mini Grease gun with 3 oz Cartridge was very comfortable in the hand having the handle against the palm and fingers holding the cartridge holder made it less tiring when using. I found it very easy to load and use instructions were very easy to follow load the cartridge. It looks and feels well built and should last for many years to come. I would recommend this to my friends. Kendj1

I have couple of items in my household that need to be lubricated. Long time ago I bought large grease gun. It was very inconvenient to lubricate parts in tight spaces. Problem with grease guns that they are twice longer when you just inserted cartridge as piston rod is fully extended. With snow blower it was impossible to reach auger gear case without rubber / flexible grease hose. That hose warn out and started leaking the grease pretty quickly. The minigun has all features of larger sibling. In particular it has piston rod stop in the extended position. This is very important as if not locked spring will push piston through the grease during shelve time.

This was very easy to assemble and I used teflon tape on the 1/8 inch pipe threads. I inserted the 3 oz grease cartrage into the gun and was ready to go. I will use this grease gun on my mower and edger that between the two have 10 grease zerks. Two on the edger and 8 on the mower. I tried it out and it works very well. One thing I like about this grease gun is that 3 oz cartrages are easy to find and with a large assortment of differant types of grease. Now the lever on this grease gun is much shorter than a full size grease gun so there isn't as much leverage when pumping grease into a zerk but as I have found out there is plenty to do the job and it answered my question of how hard it would be to pump grease. I am pleased with the results. I would recoommend one of these to anyone that is a DIYer on mechanical things like I am even if you have a full size grease gun like I do. They are less awkward than the large ones in certain situations.
