Milwaukee M12 Cordless Grease Gun
Milwaukee has just announced the release of a new cordless grease gun, the latest addition to their ever-growing 12-volt line. Looking at a picture of it, about 20 unprintable jokes instantly pop into our head and although we're sure it's a handy tool, we have a hard time taking it seriously. Thankfully, Jay over at CopTool is far more mature than we are and has a very nice summation of the new item here.
The press release is after the jump.

MILWAUKEE, WI - Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation expands its LITHIUM-ION system with the new M12™ Cordless Grease Gun. With up to 25% more pressure and run-time than the competition, the 2446-21XC is capable of delivering over 8,000 PSI max operating pressure for heavy duty applications and dispenses up to seven grease cartridges per battery charge.
"While most grease fittings require low operating pressures, our user research has unveiled a need for a grease gun that can deliver the high pressure needed for heavy machinery, cold weather and clogged grease fittings," says Paul Fry, Director of Cordless Tools for Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation. "Heavy construction, manufacturing and agricultural equipment can have anywhere from a dozen to over a hundred grease fittings that should be greased regularly. The 2446-21XC delivers the highest max operating pressure in its class to get even the toughest jobs done and eliminate as much down time as possible."
In addition, the Grease Gun is the only tool in its class with a system of compatible tools offering the user greater utility in drilling, fastening, lighting and cutting. The 2446-21XC also comes standard with a high capacity LITHIUM-ION battery that can provide up to 2X the performance in the user's other M12™ tools. Other features include a lightweight, ergonomic handle design for added user comfort during prolonged use and an on board hose storage and shoulder strap loop for greater convenience and less mess.
With the introduction of the new grease gun and plans to grow the M12™ cordless platform in the future, MILWAUKEE® continues to expand its leadership position in the sub-compact category. The M12™ platform will continue to offer innovative solutions in power, productivity, and portability.
