DAVIDSON, N.C. — Tool manufacturer Ingersoll Rand has expanded its IQV20 Series to include a 20-volt cordless grease gun, the LUB5130.
Used on passenger vehicles, commercial trucks and agricultural, construction and road equipment, the new grease gun comes with a standard 30-inch hose to maneuver tight spaces. A patent-pending inline battery-mount design improves the gun's versatility, Ingersoll Rand said, and makes it easier to access hard-to-reach areas.
The LUB5130 features three grease loading options—bulk, cartridge and manual—so users can refill quickly.
Because the product is designed to be used frequently in harsh environments and for tough applications, the LUB5130 incorporates certain technologies to ensure optimum tool durability, efficiency and safety. Such features include an LED indicator and electronic shutoff valve to prevent the motor from overheating and an impact- and chemical-resistant housing case to withstand repeated drops.
Measuring 19 inches and weighing 7.1 pounds, the LUB5130 is designed with an ergonomic handle and soft-touch, over-molded grip to minimize tool vibration and prevent operator fatigue, Ingersoll Rand said. It comes with an optional shoulder strap hook to provide additional support.
The LUB5130 includes the IQV20 Series' intelligent battery management system, which provides power-level and flow-rate control from the battery to the switch and motor. The battery delivers a high charge capacity and low internal impedance, Ingersoll Rand said.
Most tools on the IQV20 Series platform share batteries and chargers. Additional IQV20 Series 20-volt tools are coming in 2014, the company said.
