I use a standard 3oz mini tube gun from home depot for my 260B. It came with a 6" or so nipple, but I wasn't able to get it into a couple zerks down around the drum. I ordered an 18" hose to replace the nipple. I do use the 3oz JD SD polyurea grease tubes, but I get them for very cheap through a connection.

I like marine grease, aka: boat trailer bearing grease, waterproof grease, etc. Good for high-speed bearings, like your reel bearings, but comes with excellent water resistance, which helps on equipment that sees heavy dew and/or frequent washdowns.

Be careful. JD uses two different greases type (polyurea) that are not compatible with other greases, so dont mix it. The reel bearing uses very thin/oily grease.

is that just for the 220E (or QA5 cutting units) that use a different grease for the reel bearings, and polyurea for all the other zerk fittings, correct?

and non 'E' verisions I believe you can get away using just the JD polyurea NLGI 2 grease?
