Grease gun that doesn’t leak?


Technical Excellence Contributor
Anyone have a recommendation for a grease gun that doesn’t leak?
Is there such a thing?
Seems like every one that I’ve had does.

Funny enough those were the 2 I was looking at. A buddy has a Lincoln he got in 2014 that has never leaked - wonder if they are still as good. Or the lock n lube were what I was eyeing. Might need both For a test. I have two Types of grease (snowmobile and vehicle) I’d like ones for. Last auto one gave up the ghost a while back.

I got an air grease gun from HD several years ago, put a locking tip on it and have been good to go. It can be a little temperamental priming it, but then it's OK. It does suffer from red grease liquefying and dripping on the bench, but don't they all do that?

For those with the locknlube tip, did you get the extended or regular version (or which would you get to do it again?)?

I've never had one not leak when it gets hot. If that gun exists, I'd like one. I have a Milwaukee M18 grease gun which is total overkill.

I have the Milwaukee M12 not leaked yet, but with 5 Landys, tractor with loader and a backhoe I can get throu a tube of grease in one go.

Looks like this is the popular choice so I got one. Now, what's the preferred general grease everyone is using?
