Bearing Packer?

SO I got a new (used) boat and I'm checking the trailer out and the bearings are bad both sides ...I can deal with it! Now I've got everything cleaned up just picked up the new bearings and NOW I get to pack them with grease. PROBLEM ...I had one of those cone type grease packing tools, but at some point it's gone it's own way and I can't find it! Can't say I'm too un-happy this thing never did a good job anyway ...usually about 50% and I'd have to do the other 50% by hand (Good Army training! ) So now I'm looking to get a new one, and I come across something new ...called a E-Z bearing packer, looks like a cup with a piston where the bearing sits (found this one on eBay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Lisle...motiveQ5fTools) ...Anybody ever use one? ...Any good?

Lisle tools are usually pretty reliable tools. Sears sells Lisle tools often cheaper.

Packing bearings is not one of my favorite jobs and I will usually get good and greasy doing it the 'army' way(air force did it that way too). It's done right, its good for a lot of miles - and I have thrown at least 2 bearing packers away as junk. Just think of the nice soft hands that your significant other will appreciate .

I have one of those and it works great. Not sure it is exactly the same one. I just put the bearing in and use the vise to squeeze the grease into the bearing.

Well I finally got it ...guy took his sweet time getting it shipped! ...But that's another story. It was messy getting it packed with grease, and it pretty much took a whole tube of grease (could hold alot more!). It was bigger then I guessed, and I was a bit worried about squeezing the grease out of it ...the instruction even say to use a vise for "stiff" grease. But after all that and I try it for the first time it's like the difference between night & day! ...packing by hand/"cone"-type grease packer/and this E-Z packer! I had all 4 bearing packed inside of one minute! No issue will getting the grease in just using my hand to press the piston down. And with the clear cup you can see the grease coming out. This is a GOOD tool!!!
