    you may need to pump it a fair few times
    You set it all up correctly ??
    Other than that is the end blocked or anything ??
    Also have you only just got it
    If so the grease might be inside a cannister so may need the end cutting off

    No canister - its a put in pot of grease and sucky up type. then tis full.

    As far as i know its set up right but with no instructions i canna be sure!!!

    No, its not new, used it before, return home, go to grease trailer bearings and nothing comes out.
