Charlotte, N.C. - (Oct. 14, 2004) - Alemite recently introduced the industry's first 14.4-volt battery powered grease gun, the model 585. The new gun provides up to 50 percent more run time and better pressure ratings than any other cordless grease guns in the world. The 585 gun is also able to develop 10,000 PSI for unclogging those problem fittings.
The 585 cordless grease gun delivers more power, better quality and durability than the competition's 12-volt grease gun. Compared to the 12-volt guns, which can deliver up to three cartridges of grease, one fully charged battery in Alemite's 585 14.4-volt gun can deliver up to 10 cartridges of grease. This means that operators can make fewer trips to the garage or maintenance area to recharge the gun.
"Battery powered grease guns are quickly becoming the lubrication tool of choice," says Richard Sharpless, Product Manager for Grease Guns and Accessories. "When we introduced the 575 model last year, the response was overwhelming. As Alemite demonstrated with that introduction, we're committed to finding ways to help technicians and mechanics improve their day-to-day productivity. Now, with the introduction of the 585 model, we've raised the bar of innovation again."
Alemite's ergonomic design, balanced feel and optional carrying strap make lubrication easier and reduce physical strain. The 14.4-volt motor is equipped with a thermal protector and has optimized airflow, which extends the life of the motor. The gun also has an ultra-flexible 3-foot long hose, which helps make lubricating even the most stubborn parts effortless.
