Video Transcript for Performance Tool Tools - Grease and Lubricants - PTW54290 Review

Today we're going to review the performance tool heavy duty lever aluminum grease gun. This grease gun is designed with a lightweight aluminum anodized barrel. It is designed to accept the standard 14 ounce grease cartridges, uses a heavy duty die cast T handle right here and an internal return spring on it. The end cap is removable, has a positive tab lock. Now the lever handle right here is a zinc plated lever handle, has a nice PVC grip for nice comfort. The head on it is a variable stroke aluminum die cast head.

One side has a bulk load fitting, the other side is an air valve or an air bleed off if you get any air pockets in the gun. You can push that to relieve the air out of it. Now this part does include the 12 inch triple reinforced flexible hose with the anti-kinking coil spring and it does have a 4500 PSI rating. Has a nice PVC cap over the coupler, this would just attach right there. You just screw that in and it also comes with the 5 and a half inch rigid hose with the 10 degree bend. Same way, you can screw that in also either side.

Now this grease gun has a 3 way loading system. You can use, as I mentioned, the standard cartridge. Basically to do that, you would just unscrew this aluminum barrel and again has a nice rubber grip right here. It gives you good grip to loosen it and tighten it. Once you get this barrel completely off, just like that, then what you'll do is this T handle you can see, if you pull your T handle all the way out, this tab will automatically lock in and hold it open. Then you can put your grease cartridge right in there.

Now when you push this handle to release it, if there's a cartridge in there it will just go up against the grease cartridge and then put the pressure on it. Since there's no cartridge in there right now, you can see if I push it, it will release and completely close. Now that's one way of loading it. The other way would be if you had a bulk drum of grease and you wanted to suction the grease up in there. Same way, you just put this down in the grease, pull back on this T handle and that will suction the grease up in there.

Once you get enough grease in there, release it, then go ahead and attach it to the gun. The last way would be if you had a bulk drum but they have a dispenser on it. A dispenser would be similar to a hose just like this that would come off the drum itself. It would have a coupler on the end. What you could do there is then just attach, go ahead and screw your barrel back on. Screw it on until it's tightened up and you just want to snug it up. You don't want to overtighten it. Once you get it all snugged up in there then you'll take the coupler that's on the dispenser on the bulk drum and it would attach right to this side right here. Then you would just pump the grease right into your . Pull back on the T handle, pump the grease right in there. That would be your third way of filling it. That should do it for the review of the performance tool heavy duty lever aluminum grease gun.

Customer Reviews

Heavy Duty Grease Gun - Lever Action - Aluminum - PTW54290

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (4 Customer Reviews)


I lost my Dad's old really good grease gun. I searched and searched for something similar - but I believe he must have paid an arm and a leg for that gun years ago. So, I chose this one, because of the operation of the handle. I cannot squeeze the newer "trigger handle" ones (I am a lady, older, without power in my hands any more) - and needed a configuration like this, along with the long flexible hose. Easy to load, easy to operate. You will need to tighten everything up - it IS grease after all. So, if people are complaining, just stop what you are doing, tighten everything up. It works.

Excellent product. Would buy again.

  • Proper Lubrication for 5th Wheel Hitches
    You will want to use a white lithium grease for the grease fitting that is on top of the head unit on your B & W 5th Wheel Companion Trailer Hitch, # BWKRVK3300. I recommend using item # L11354. This is a multi-purpose white lithium grease that comes in a 14 ounce tube that will fit any standard grease gun. I recommend item # PTW54290 if you're in need of a grease gun or wanting to replace an older one. I have personally owned this one for over 10 years and it has never let me down. It...

  • Best Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Hitches
    The head of the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch item # BWRVK3300 is 13" in diameter. You will want to use the Reese Lube Plate 12" Diameter item # RP83001. This 12 inch diameter plate works great on higher capacity hitches like your B&W. For your lube points I recommend the LubriMatic White Lithium Grease - 14 oz. Cartridge item # L11354. If you need a grease gun you will want the Heavy Duty Grease Gun - Lever Action - Aluminum item # PTW54290.

  • Uprgading Wheels and Tires and Regular Bearing Maintenance
    Depending on the clearance of your fenders you should have no problem changing to a 13" wheel and tire. You will need a minimum 1/2" more space than you currently have to accommodate the larger tire. I recommend the Kenda Loadstar ST175/80D13 Bias Trailer Tire with 13" Galvanized Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 item # AM3S160. These are load range c tires, they have a capacity of 1,360 lbs at 50 psi, and have a maximum speed of 81 mph. You should inspect your bearings annually or every 3,000 miles....

  • How to Grease a Dexter EZ Lube Axle
    EZ Lube axles like the item # T3584F-EZ-8974 come from the factory with just a little bit of grease in the bearings. The first time you use the EZ Lube feature to fill the axle, it will take a lot of grease. You will probably use 3/4 to a full tube for each wheel. You will need the Performance Tools Heavy Duty Grease Gun - Lever Action - Aluminum item # PTW54290 to pump the grease into your axle. I have personally owned this grease gun for years and I have never had any issues or blow outs...

  • Replacement Bearing and Seal Kit with Grease for a Malone MicroSport Trailer
    No, it is not normal for seals to go bad that quickly. Typically if your hubs are spraying/leaking grease, it is because of a bad seal. From what I could find, it looks like your Malone Microsport trailer has a 1.98 inch diameter hub. The correct replacement seal would be the Double Lip Grease Seal # 34823. I would recommend replacing the bearings and seals on both sides using the Bearing Kit # BK1-100. To grease the wheels you can use LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390...

  • Can You Use Industrial Strength Red Grease In The Dexter HD Suspension Kit # K71-358-00?
    Yes, you can use a Lithium Complex grease like Lucas Oil's Red and Tacky or Lubrimatic's LMX Industrial Strength Red Grease, # L11390 in these shackles. These Lithium Complex grease products resist water and stay in place, which means they work well on external parts that are exposed to the weather. Lithium Complex grease works well with trailers that are heavily loaded as well as industrial or agricultural trailers that get a lot of use. If your trailer is not used for industrial or...

    The correct bearing kit for your 4,400 lb Lippert Torsion Axle is part # BK2-100. I confirmed this information through my contact at Lippert based on the serial number S003959875. This bearing kit includes one outer bearing # L44649 with matching race, one inner bearing # L68149 with matching race, one 10-19 double lip grease seal # 58846 and a cotter pin for standard spindles as well as a tang washer for EZ-Lube spindles.

    The Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider, # C16536 installed to the OEM puck system on your 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Adapter Rails, # C88KR, is bound to have some "chucking".
