Whether manual or automatic
If you intend to do small-scale lubrication, you might opt for a manual grease gun which will cost you less, but the amount of work you can do with it is limited. On the other hand, if you are after embracing technology or making work easier or you have larger surfaces, you may have to go for an automated grease gun. The implication of using an automated grease gun is that it will cost you higher than the manual one.
The size of the surface to be lubricated
When the surface for greasing is large in volume, you should adjust your budget and be ready to spend more because you may have to get multiple or very high quality as opposed to when the volume of surface that requires lubrication is smaller, you will not spend much to get one and small size.
Ease of use
Opting for easy-to-use grease guns means you will have to spend more considering the technology and creativity invested in the machine. For instance, go for a cordless grease gun so you can feel freer while using it.
That is a good desire, but you must pay for the convenience. Unlike when you use the normal grease guns with no added feature, you won’t spend much on that. Convenience is a factor that will influence the grease gun price in Kenya.
Where are you purchasing it from?
Consider working with legitimate dealers who will not extort money from you for all your purchases. If you make your purchases from wholesalers and well-established dealers, you are likely to pay less than someone who bought the same machine in retail. Although the margin might not be big, it is worth saving, even if it’s a few notes.
The company that has manufactured
Different manufacturers charge differently for their products, even if they are very much the same and perform the same purposes. Be keen on the company that has manufactured the machine or the country from which it has been imported. Have a variety, keep quality but watch the prices and check which one is more affordable.
