Big upgrade for da farm ....

Apr 15, 2019 | 16:25 1 No not a 150 ft new air drill ...


Time to retire the ole Lincoln 12v , this Dewalt 20 v is impressive to use , a bit heavy though .
Milwaukee makes a dandy as well
Lithium / Ion batteries light years ahead of the ole junk . Reply With Quote

    Apr 15, 2019 | 20:43 6 I guess I am old school. I have a battery powered one that I never use,just never liked it and found it hard to tell how much grease was going in. I like the lever handles best and have the pistol grip for the odd hard to reach ones. My electric is about 10 years old and might be a lot different from a new dewalt Reply With Quote

    Apr 15, 2019 | 21:11 8 I thought lock n lub was junk. Seal doesn’t last very long in them Reply With Quote
    Apr 15, 2019 | 21:22 9 ours came with a couple seal kits but biggest problem was it was too big to get in a lot of places . bought a different version from local agco dealer , was slimmer but didn't last long . power grease guns just to powerful . even regular tips don't last long Reply With Quote

  • farmaholic's Avatar Apr 15, 2019 | 21:56 11 What's a grease gun? Too messy so we never use them....never buy equipment that was used in the Slum of the Ghetto....all the grease zerks have all the factory paint on them when we trade the equipment off.

    Actually, one of our combines had a Lincoln Auto Greaser on it. I actually liked it. We kept an eye on the places being greased to make sure they were getting it and the lines weren't plugged or the area being greased never had solid grease in the outlet. With a consistant small fresh supply of grease everywhere, the system never really caused us any trouble. Reply With Quote

    off topic , but we were using blue coop grease and had nipples quite regularly that wouldn't take grease. found out that grease has clay in it . switched to black moly based and haven't had any problems since Reply With Quote

    Hard nipples can be bad on a cold day, or possibly good? I don’t know I’m confused. Reply With Quote
