SKF launches a grease gun for lubrication

SKF has developed a tool that simplifies the task of lubrication. The SKF Lincoln dual-piston lever-action grease gun (Model 1154) has a thumb-operated switch that allows it to toggle between high-volume and high-pressure. This makes it easier for technicians to quickly adjust the tool to match the equipment’s lubrication requirements.

The grease gun is ideal for farmers for a piece of farm equipment with a variety of high-pressure and high-volume lubrication points and construction workers, who need reliable, durable tools in rough working environments and users in vehicle repair garages.

The volume position allows efficient greasing of all lubrication points with fewer strokes. Large joints, bushings, and bearings can be filled quickly. It is also excellent for lubricating large surface areas such as fifth wheels, chains, and conveyors. The pressure position has a standard grease output of 34 strokes/oz. It develops 10,000 psi for use whenever high-pressure requirements are needed, such as track adjusters, clogged fittings, and high-tolerance locations.

“Lubrication jobs are effortless with the uniquely versatile design of the 1154 grease gun. It handles a variety of applications and speeds up working times,” said Keith Rohan, Product Manager at SKF.

SKF dates back to 1907. It specializes in developing, designing, manufacturing bearings, seals, and lubrication systems. It currently has a presence in 130 countries and has around 17,000 distributor locations worldwide with 40,963 employees.
