When using the air grease gun you can't rush it, you have to let the pistone to return before you push the trigger again. I always use a leather glove on the hand that is on the end of the hose, had a friend have one explode in his hand and filled his hand with grease. He almost lost his hand from infection, he recovered bur his hand is a ugly mess. They can put out upwards of 10,000 psi depending on the air pressure going to it.

The reason I bought this gun was because of my mower deck.It has 3 blades with bearings,that take forever to fill up with grease.I usually just pump the grease in til I get really tired of pumping the old grease gun.I am thinking the air operated one will make this job a lot easier.
