GREASE LOADING INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION
Use caution when loading grease to prevent damaging substances (dirt, metal shavings or particles, etc.) from contaminating the grease.
There are two methods for loading grease:
Method 1:
Grease Cartridge Loading (most common)
Method 2:
Grease Tub Loading (from bulk container)

METHOD 1: GREASE CARTRIDGE LOADING

  1. Unscrew the barrel (A) from the head (B) by turning counterclockwise.
  2.  Holding the barrel securely with one hand, pull the plunger (C) all the way out. Make sure it locks into place before relaxing your grip on the barrel or plunger.
  3.  To prepare the grease cartridge, first remove the plastic lid from one end, then insert the cartridge (open end first) all the way into the barrel. The metal pull-tab lid will be visible.
  4.  Remove the metal pull-tab lid. Make sure no metal slivers fall into the grease.
  5. With the grease cartridge fully inserted, screw the barrel back on the head by turning clockwise and tighten by hand (See Figure 5).
  6. Loosen the head a 1/4 turn to help purge air. Carefully release the plunger by pressing down on the spring plunger release (G). Tighten the head back to the barrel.
  7.  Pump the trigger until grease begins to flow from the coupler (F). It will take several pumps until grease begins to flow. If grease does not flow, make sure the plunger is free to push grease up the barrel by pressing the spring pluger release (G). Repeat until grease flows correctly (See Figure 6).

NOTE: Trapped air and air bubbles in the grease are the most common causes of poor grease flow. Always purge trapped air using method above.GreaseTek GT-MINI-1 Premium Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 6GreaseTek GT-MINI-1 Premium Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 7GreaseTek GT-MINI-1 Premium Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 8

METHOD 2: GREASE TUB LOADING
With close-fitting plastic washer covering grease in tub.

  1.  Unscrew the barrel (A) from the head (B) by turning counterclockwise (See Figure 1).
  2.  Place the tub of grease where you can use the grease gun barrel to push down on the close-fitting plastic washer while pulling back on the plunger (C) at the same time (See Figure 2).
  3. .Line up the open end of the barrel over the hole in the washer. Holding the barrel securely with one hand, use it to push down on the washer while pulling back on the plunger at the same time. Grease will be forced up through the hole in the washer and sucked into the grease gun barrel
    (See Figure 2)..When the grease gun barrel is full, slide it sideways to “cut off” the pillar of grease you’ve made inside the barrel (See Figure 3)
  4.  Screw the barrel back on the head by turning clockwise and tighten by hand (See Figure 4).
  5.  Loosen the head a 1/4 turn to help purge air. Carefully release the plunger by pressing down on the spring plunger release (G). Tighten the head back to the barrel.
  6.  Pump the trigger until grease begins to flow from the coupler (F). It will take several pumps until grease begins to flow. If grease does not flow, make sure the plunger is free to push grease up the barrel by pressing the spring plunger release (G). Repeat until grease flows correctly.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION:
Always make sure the dispensing nozzle or coupler (F) is clean before using. Pump out a small amount of grease, then wipe off with a clean rag or lint-free cloth before attaching to the grease fitting to be lubricated.
Always make sure grease fittings are clean before lubricating. Clean away all dirt before attaching the grease gun, even if grease fitting caps are used. Inspect and replace damaged fittings. Clean grease fittings after applying grease.
Ensure the proper type of grease is used at every grease point. Applying the wrong grease can cause incompatibility problems and lead to bearing failure. Use colored labels, adhesive dots, or paint markers to identify which type of grease should be used on various lubrication points.

  1.  The grease coupler provided at the end of the grease gun extension has small “jaws” that snap on to a grease fitting and maintain a tight fit.

To connect the coupler to a grease fitting, press the coupler straight onto the fitting to form a snug fit. Always keep the extension and coupler straight on to the grease fitting when pumping grease. GreaseTek GT-MINI-1 Premium Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 15

  1.  To remove, slightly tilt the coupler until resistance is felt, then
  2.  To remove, slightly tilt the coupler until resistance is felt, thenGreaseTek GT-MINI-1 Premium Mini Pistol Grip Grease Gun Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 16

If coupler is difficult to remove, loosen grease coupler a 1/4 turn or until jaws have relaxed their grip enough to remove the grease coupler from the grease fitting.
WARNING
Disengaging the coupler by pulling it out straight could break grease fitting.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Use a wet towel to clean the grease gun head, barrel and parts after each use, and dry it thoroughly. Make sure the tool is properly cleaned and that there are no contaminates on it before storing.
STORAGE
Grease guns should be stored unpressurized in a horizontal position, in a clean, cool dry area to help prevent grease from separating. Grease gun clamps are recommended (not included) to make storage simpler and safer.

TROUBLESHOOTING

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE CORRECTIVE ACTION
