- Buyer's Guide
Alemite recently introduced a new 18-volt, lithium-ion grease gun that is designed to improve productivity and reduce downtime. The Model 595 grease gun provides a flow rate of 6 ounces per minute and a maximum pressure of 8,000 psi while delivering up to 27 grease cartridges on a single battery charge.
To reduce operator fatigue, the grease gun’s motor is located in the handle for optimal balance, and its battery weighs 40 percent less than a comparable nickel-cadmium battery. Operators can also charge the battery anytime without capacity loss.
Other benefits of the lithium-ion technology include a consistent level of performance from the beginning to the end of the discharge cycle and three times as many charges as nickel-cadmium batteries.
The grease gun also features a housing made of glass-fiber-reinforced nylon for strength and impact resistance. The battery light indicates sufficient capacity for three grease cartridges, and the stall light reveals a clogged fitting. The unit’s motor has a thermal protector and optimized air flow for extended life. In addition, an ultra-flexible, Kevlar-reinforced hose is included to access difficult-to-reach areas.
