This Alemite 585-B1 14.4V cordless grease gun, which comes with a 36" high-pressure whip hose and a heavy-duty grease coupler, delivers lubricant at pressures up to 10,000 pounds per square inch (psi) at a rate of 5 oz. per minute and can load lubricant three ways: 14.5 oz. cartridge, suction, or fast refill from an Alemite loader pump. A 14.4V motor with three stages of gear reduction accommodates varying pressure requirements, and a crank and yoke mechanism drives a reciprocating piston pump, powered by a 14.4V 1,700 mAh (milliampere hour) battery that can be charged by a 110V/60 Hz charger (2 batteries included). For every full battery charge, it delivers up to 17 14.5 oz. cartridges at free flow, and has a bulk capacity of 16 oz. The grease gun's lightweight, ergonomic construction makes it suitable for general lubricating applications, its glass fiber-reinforced polymer housing gives it durability, and the chrome-plating on the barrel makes the barrel resistant to corrosion. The follower requires no flipping when changing the method by which the grease is loaded into the gun. A bleeder valve aids in priming the grease gun and keeps it from building up excessive pressure in the cylinder. This cordless grease gun weighs 7 lb./3.2 kg. This cordless grease gun injects grease into standard grease fittings and is suitable for applications such as lubricating motor vehicles, construction and industrial equipment, and aeronautics.
Oil and grease guns are handheld tools that inject lubricant (dispensed from the barrel or cylinder cartridge) into metal mechanical assemblies. Electric and air-powered grease guns can dispense large volumes of lubricant in commercial applications, while battery-powered (cordless) grease guns are more suitable for mobile and remote applications. Manual grease guns (lever, pistol-grip, screw-type, push-type, and suction) vary in duty and have either a rigid or flexible hose extension for attaching nozzles or a nozzle with coupler for standard grease fittings. Oil and grease guns are used in a broad variety of applications including vehicles of all types, construction equipment, factory and agricultural machinery, and aeronautics, among others.
Alemite manufactures lubrication and fluid handling systems and components. The company, founded in 1918, is headquartered in Fort Mill, SC.
