To meet market demand, the need to keep farming machinery well maintained and operating to its optimum is more critical than ever. Keeping productivity up, eliminating downtime on equipment and reducing the costs of maintenance is not just good business practice but can be the point of difference in farming profitability.
This is what the new Alemlube 630A 20V lithium-ion cordless grease gun has been designed to assist the farming community with. Newly released to the market and available through Motion, this mobile grease gun is lightweight and has built-in smarts to help grease equipment in an efficient, fast, safe and effective way.
Designed by Europe’s leading workshop lubrication equipment manufacturer, Samoa, the 630A cordless grease gun offers a drama-free high-pressure, high-volume greasing solution with dual flow rate modes delivering 100g/min or 160g/min and maximum grease pressures of up to 10,000PSI/700BAR.
The electric motor has also been engineered to increase the battery life, delivering more power and enabling greasing to occur even through blocked and dirty grease points. This minimises the time and effort required in an agricultural setting.
The unit is supplied with 2 x 2Ah lithium-ion batteries as standard which can dispense up to 16 x 450g cartridges of grease per battery charge. If greater output is required there is also an optional 4.0Ah battery that can dispense up to 32 cartridges before a recharge is needed.
Weighing at just 3kg, the lightweight and ergonomic 630A 20V Lithium-ion cordless grease gun is supplied with a 1,100mm long grease hose with steel spring protection, a heavy duty coupler and has the versatility of three way loading, 450g cartridge, bulk grease or filler pump. The 1.1m long flexible extension holster has robust rubber feet to provide stability on flat surfaces.
The pump is designed with quality componentry to ensure durability in harsh agricultural settings. It has overpressure and overload protection mechanisms built in the design to assist with longevity.
Additionally, the easy-to-see multifunction LCD screen gives users all the information they need to know about the gun itself and how much grease has been put into a pin, bush, seal, slide or bearing. Operators can see grease levels in the grease cartridge and battery levels and the gun has an LED work light included with its on/off control switch. Another feature of the grease gun is the LCD turns red when there is a blocked lube point or another issue so users can quickly act to avoid any damage or waste.
The plastic moulded anti-corrosive carry case provided further helps to reduce contamination of ingress into farming equipment and machinery. It is supplied with a 2Ah spare battery, a battery charger which recharges the battery within 70 minutes and a shoulder strap to minimise user fatigue.
To give farmers peace of mind, the 630A 20V lithium-ion cordless grease gun comes with a 5 year warranty. To learn more about the Alemlube 630A 20V lithium-ion cordless grease gun and its suitability in an agricultural setting, readers can get in touch with their local Motion branch.
