Bosch Has New 30-Ton King Pin Pusher Set
Bosch Automotive Service Solutions Inc. has released the OTC 4240A 30-ton king pin pusher set to assist technicians when changing king pins and brake anchor pins on heavy-duty vehicles.
The company says it removes both straight and tapered king pins faster than traditional methods. The set includes five special collars and two pins to adapt the tool for various king pin and brake anchor pin applications.
The tool uses the hydraulic force of a hollow-center cylinder to replace even the most corroded king pins, ranging from 7/8 to 2 inches in diameter and up to 11-1/4 inches in length.
Accommodating most models of trucks and buses, the tool provides up to 30 tons of force, creating a seamless process for removing king pins and brake anchor pins.
