I need a new grease gun to use for my Scag. What is a very good brand to buy? I have 2 now but I want one that is easier to use.

Don't know about easy to use but I'd not buy anything that doesn't use a standard grease tube. I have a battery gun, uses some sort of small tube that I can't find anywhere. I fill it by hand, nice gun, plenty of power, smaller size is handy, but a pain in the @&& to refill.

For ease of use, get two--one with a flex hose and pistol grip; the other with the rigid tube and lever handle.

Don't buy cheap grease, either, or you'll have oil leaking out of the grease guns. Mobil 1 synthetic grease doesn't leak but it costs about 4x as much as cheap grease.

edit to add: Don't forget, not all zerks take the same kind of grease, so you may end up with more that two grease guns.

It will depend upon exactly where your zerks are.
If you have hollow spindles then you will need a 90 deg end because the right hand one is impossible to get at on nearly every ZTR regardless of brand.
Because I service mowers I use a McNaught Mini Lube that takes a 5 lb tin.
For the others I use a Tricor Grease Gun it has a rubber bung that goes into the end of the tube so it never ever leaks and the magnet is really handy for one handed use
I use only 2 kinds of general grease
Waterproof marine grease, everywhere other than blade spindles
High tack argicultural grease ( red )for blade spindles.
Both are lithium greases.

what type grease do you use on your mower? I want a pistol grip grease gun next.
