this is all for fun/ entertainment with a little bit of armchair science-ing. I'm just a high usage home gamer/ pro-sumer, like many here.

I bought the Dewalt because I have amassed a dozen batteries and at least that many tools for that platform over several years starting with a black Friday drill deal 6 or so yrs ago.

I found a M12 ratchet & battery behind a seat at the U-pull it, which got me into that 12v platform and i absolutely love them for the lighter work.

Finding a M18 gun with charger & case, for ~ the cost of a dinner for 2 at Outback was not really a possible reality I had considered before Saturday morning. But it was enough to get me to at least wade into the M18 tool platform & check out the hype ( i'm working on a marketplace deal to halfway steal a used fuel 1/2" impact from some random 'shrewd negotiator'.

Charge them up and put grease in them. 24 hrs in the coldest freezer you can find and then test them. Pump at least a tube out of each through a zerk. Time attack. I hate freezing my ass off greasing an excavator.

I went Team Red last year, so if you decide to stay Team Yellow and offload your Red stuff let me know. Also, which HD did you get you clearance tools from and did they have any more?

This time of year, I go through 2 to 4 tubes of grease a day going over our semis, tractors, combines, and implements. I own makita, coworker owns milwaukee, the farm owns dewalt.

For sheer power of blasting through stubborn zerks, i like milwaukee. The bypass on the dewalt is a fucking mess. I like the makita for convenience in that i only had to buy an attachment to go in my drill. All of them shoot grease where you want it. The dewalt just makes a bigger mess if you have a crusty zerk.

Ask project farm on youtube .
He just did a grease test,
He will come up with some kind of scientific farm rigged test.

He is okay on a lot of stuff. His methodology is lacking on a lot of things that affect the outcome. Stuff like holes drilled in wood that don't apply the load the same between samples. He needs a clamp with teeth like you pick up sheet metal with.

Yes, but in very limited amounts. 6k calories a day plus gym routine took me from 135 to 155-160 in a year. I'm basically 10lbs lighter now on a normal diet and physically demanding job. I fluctuate about 5-7lbs a day.

So, no? I probably have the highest metabolic rate possible. Shrug

I'm 3" taller than you. Very lean. I'm also very narrow. I have wide shoulders and a positive wing span. My legs are long with a 34 end seam. But I have a 30" waste which puts me in a 28 or 29 pant. This morning I was 143 on the scale.

Doing one side with each takes out any temperature differences that may influence overall life/capability and keeps use fairly consistant between the two. So bring on the results.

tractor/ finish mower & zero turns have historically gotten way less grease than the specs say they should.

I do have a saltwater boat with twin engines, so that could be one option.

I have a cumulative 10+ trailer axles, but if the seals are decent they shouldn't need much regular attention.

I'd just put a pressure gauge on them and see how much pressure they can put out with a fully charged battery, and then do as others say and put them in high gear and see how quickly they can empty a tube maybe no load in one test and try and figure out a way to put them under a load in another test.

The greasing one side of equipment with one and another side with another wouldn't really prove anything IMO. Too many factors there that could contribute to one side failing first. And as long as the grease gun gets grease in there to where it starts coming out, it did it's job properly.

Well if you havenít unpacked the yellow pos, take it back and get your money back! You bought a better gun at the yard sale. We donít need any test to tell which is best. The gravel guy already did the research for you. ... youíre welcome for saving you money to buy another tool that you need.

suggestion

Anybody have a report on every day use over a year? At work we shoot several cylinders through our pneumatic firearms every night. They don't appear to keep going exceptionally long. These appear to be somewhat cumbersome for our application however.

I use the Milwaukee every day at work and put at least 10-15 tubes a week through it. A single 5.0 battery will do a 10 tube case of grease on a single charge. I have blown out the threads where the hose goes into the body one day when I was holding the trigger down until it stopped pumping on a zerk that wouldnt take grease. Occasionally, maybe every 6 months, I have to replace the metal cylinder barrel as the spring gets weak. Overall, I wouldn't be able to do my job as quickly without this tool and its something I depend on every day. I do however, keep a spare brand new one up on a shelf at all times, I keep several new barrel cylinders on hand, lots of new grease tips, and throw the whole thing in the garbage about usually one a year.

Send your broken ones to Milwaukee they will completely rebuild them for you. Last one had a trigger failure they basically sent me a new one back. I only had to pay for the shipping.

Really? I have a pile of broken Milwaukee stuff including batteries with busted cases. Maybe I need to go research the warranty information.

Thats why I suggested that the sides be switched from one day to the next to take into account any wear or mechanical issues on a particular side including any restrictions in the grease nipple or channel that may provide higher resistance to grease flowing and tax the tool more. (day 1 left gets red right gets yellow, day 2 left gets yellow right gets red, rinse repeat see which one dies first).

I just drop them off at my local mom and pop shop Milwaukee dealer they do all the leg work. If the warranty is up they will send a quote to fix it. I had another trigger failure on a drill. It came back with a brand new chuck
