For clarity only, the one I mention comes with both flex and rigid . Flex is a pain, as you need to hold the pump fill fitting on the zerk in order to grease some joints.

I believe, and will find out in the near future that the rigid tube with the

V

Model 5848 adapter
• Built-in swivel allows full 360° circle.
• Locks in any one of eight 45° positions.

Will solve that problem and allow access to fittings found on ball joints

So the grease gun arrived today, two quick observations. The pump action is very smooth, and light. Second tried to pull the T handle out to check how it locks when extended.

The seal of the disc (pushes the grease up) against the body is so tight. I was unable to pull the T handle to the extended lock position. Had to open the valve on the head some, to keep the tube from pulling a vacuum.

I can tell this is a tool that's gong to do the job, thank you Flat tire for the heads up.

You will want this in your garage, folks....
