Grease Gun Completely Empties a Catridge


The patented delivery system on BG Products’ Lube Shuttle completely empties a reuseable grease cartridge. This is made possible by the grease gun’s higher pressure of 4,300 psi which is created in the barrel and through the hose to expell nearly 100% of the grease in a cartridge. The gun works with BG screw-top refillable cartridges that can be refilled up to four times for reuse. The gun is compatible with BG Products lubricating and multipurpose greases.
