My only concern is how long will the battery last and will it be possible to get new batteries in X years time when its dead.

My electric hand drill modded bait gun runs perfectly, provided the electric bill has been paid Works a treat for small batches

Type in '20v Li-ion lithium battery' on Fleabay mate... Quite a few come up that are identical fittings wise to the battery that comes with the gun. The only difference seems to be the slots on top of the battery, where it attaches to the gun. Some batteries on Fleabay have 4 slots, some have 5 even though they all look 'identical' at first glance.. It's 5 slots on this gun.

But there are loads of after market batteries that will fit. It would seem to be a very standard battery .

The guns have been faultless for us.

Used mine last night for the first time with a dry/stiff mix and both small (12mm) and big (18mm) nozzle sizes. Worked perfectly and it could have gone faster than I could keep up with.

My only concern is how long will the battery last and will it be possible to get new batteries in X years time when its dead. To be honest if that becomes a problem I will just add a power cord and plug top PSU as I don't really need cordless for bait making

For the money this is a great buy IMHO

I also got a £40 'commercial' fryer off ebay (item 174392865303)...why did I not get that before. Quick to boil and gets straight back to the boil with 1/2kg of bait dropped in it. It is made with paper thin stainless steel but it does a great job for £40

Cheers, only asking as I usually make bait on a night when the kids are asleep so donít want anything too loud.

Itís makes a bit of noise but itís certainly not too loud, no different from any electric tool type thing.

Mine arrived Friday and I used it for the first time that evening, fantastic! I enjoyed using it so much I got up early Saturday and did another batch!

As TCarper said, it charged quickly and after 2 x mixes it still was fully charged. The nozzle end of my Gardner gun unscrewed and fitted straight on.

Obviously canít give long term reviews but initially very impressed, I hope it lasts

I have ordered two more for work. (One to keep as a spare). They are absolutely incredible for the money, you will not be disappointed. I'd say that the gun is much better than the £270 Cox version. Pushes through very stiff mixes with ease. All external attachments fit from the Gardner/Cox manual guns. The only difference, is a small difference in length of main barrel and the plungers are not interchangeable either (diff thread)... So the barrels are not interchangeable.... Everything else is.

My only very small gripe, is a small touch of paste gets behind the plunger when using very wet mixes, this is only due to the plungers supplied having small expansion gaps... Super easy to clean at the end of the day by screwing off the barrel. When I get a chance I will MOD this to stop this happening. It has a battery meter on it, so far I've not managed to run it down at all... And that's using it morning till night. The battery seems superb and charges very quickly.

The trigger control is also fantastic, far better than the Cox version.

Bless him, 'made in leicester, none of that Chinese crap'

Does he honestly believe that

I've still got one on order to try out, running the compressor is very anti-social
