MAKITA UK has announced the launch of its new 18V DGP180 LXT grease gun. Delivering up to 10,000 psi operating pressure, the new solution is described as being ideal for professionals working on demanding lubrication applications for vehicles and machinery.

The grease gun can reach a maximum 10,000 psi discharge pressure level, while maintaining a 290 ml/min discharge rate. As such, the new system is able to dispense grease even at high pressure for the most demanding of applications, Makita UK said.

Designed with efficiency and productivity in mind, the new DGP180 features an automatic pressure switching function, which detects the pressure and automatically reduces the grease flow rate as machinery components are filled. For greater control, the variable-speed trigger allows users to manage the amount of grease that is dispensed depending on the job or requirements.
