How do you change grease in a grease gun?

A grease gun is useful in lubricating items in garages or workshops. Grease guns function like nail guns only that the latter is useful for driving nails instead of grease. The manual gun comes in two types, those that need a trigger to operate and those that don't need a trigger to operate. Some use air power to administer the grease. For a grease gun to function, you need to load it with grease or a lubricant.Although loading a grease gun is a simple affair, most people struggle a lot. The advantage of using grease over oil is that it doesn't leak easily.Consequently, refilling a grease gun is not similar to refilling machines that use oil as a lubricant.If you are operating a grease gun, it's essential to know how to load it properly for reliability and efficiency.Proper loading helps in averting the problem of under or over greasing, which may affect the lifespan of your grease gun. Below here, we'll share the procedure of loading a grease gun. Keep reading.
