The flexible hose extension that comes with this grease gun is 20” in length, 2 inches longer than the Alemite and Lincoln products.
There is a rubber seal on the coupler, so the company provides a free seal kit in case it wears off on regular use. One feature that makes this lever grease gun different from other is its ‘storage zerk’, there is a zerk on the head of the grease gun which you can use to lock the coupler when the gun is not in use.
