Dual-piston grease gun to simplify the task of lubrication

A manual grease gun that can easily be switched from standard use to high-pressure or high-volume delivery making it perfect for handling any job, including those with large lubrication points or clogged fittings.

Gothenburg, Sweden 1 December 2021: SKF has developed a tool that simplifies the critical 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.

“Lubrication jobs are effortless with the uniquely versatile design of the 1154,” says Keith Rohan, product manager at SKF. “It handles a variety of applications and speeds up working times.”

The grease gun is perfect for farmers and construction workers, who need reliable, durable tools in rough working environments as well as users in vehicle repair garages.

For high-volume applications, users can benefit the more efficient design. The 1154 requires three times less strokes, compared to standard grease guns, administrating the same amount.

If high pressure is needed, such as when a fitting is blocked, it can be difficult for the operator to clear it but in the standard output, pressure position, the 1154 can successfully open the fitting without the operator having to apply excessive force.

The 1154 can manage all lubrication tasks very easily, because the technician can adjust the grease gun to meet their needs with the press of a switch. A typical application would be a piece of farm equipment that has a variety of high-pressure and high-volume lubrication points.

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 and develops 10,000 psi for use whenever high-pressure requirements are needed – such as track adjusters, clogged fittings and high-tolerance locations.

The product is available today in North America and will be available in the rest of the world sometime during 2022.
