Grease gun couplers/nozzles

Recommended Posts

Alright

 

I was just wondering wot u all use for grease gun couplings?

 

I'm more a saw background so never really had to grease heavier machines and sick of normal couplings either being slack or so tight u cannae get the bloody things off.

 

Got 1 cheap lock on type nozzle which I really like but just a wee bit bulky with the lever on side.

Is there many other types out there?

I thought I seen 1 somewhere which was a sliding locking mechanism which looked better.

Think it's a G coupler I use.  Its a bit bulkier and can be tricky to get into tight spots but other than that is excellent

It's more down to the gun. I use a Fuchs reiner gun and its awesome. Doesn't leak as the cartridge isn't under pressure so it's not an oily pos all the time. The head on that is ideal, clicks over and then you just bend it to one side (which it tells you to do) to get it off. The fact its not plated in grease and has a good head on it makes it a pleasure to use.

 

I've got a macnaught/safe lock type couplers and they're very good. They click on and off but tbh they are bulky and get annoying if you have tight access but if you don't they're easy to put on and easy to get off.

Never had a problem with all my old Land Rovers but the UJ couplings on the Puma are different. I had to grind down the  diameter of the coupling to get it to fit. Still difficult now.

G Coupler here too, works fabulous since years. For those tight spots, I keep a regular one in the shelf.

Another for the G-coupler. And the Fuches system is great too. Wish I’d got one earlier instead of wasting money on 3 standard guns… grease everywhere and never work when u need em

Does the G coupler stay on and not leak without needing to hold it in place?
