Macnaught’s new, improved BG 100 Powergun will be exhibited on Stand 4203 at Reed Exhibitions’ National Manufacturing Week at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre from May 27 to 30.
The compact, lightweight and portable battery-operated grease gun now pumps at 100 gm per minute (free flow) which is almost twice as fast as the original model.
Macnaught’s marketing manager, Lorenzo Gella, said that, because it could cut servicing time in half, the Powergun was a worthwhile proposition for anyone in the machinery maintenance industry.
And Powergun buyers now get a spare battery pack so lubrication work can continue while one battery recharges on the accompanying one-hour charger.
Each fully charged 12 V NiCad 1300 mAh battery enables the Powergun to dispense up to three 450 gm cartridges at 345000 kPa (5000 psi, 345 bar).
The Powergun can operate in temperatures of up to 50° C and its extra-long 762 mm flexible extension is designed to reach hard-to-get-at grease points. It can also be connected to a bulk refilling or J2 grease pump system.
It is packed in a heavy-duty moulded case for safe storage and transport and is available through Macnaught’s national network of 70 service centres.
Sydney-based Macnaught, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, supplies a comprehensive range of lubrication equipment, flow meters and hose reels. Its products are used in the mining, agricultural, transport and general engineering industries in Australia and more than 60 countries worldwide.
