SPX Corp. has unveiled its new OTC Universal Hub Puller HD with Plate (P/N 6574). The puller is designed to offer professional technicians complete capability for servicing wheel hubs, axle shafts, and other tough pulling applications.
SPX says this rugged hub puller is well-suited for pushing the driveaxle out of the wheel hub center. It is also useful for pulling the hub off of the drive axle.
"Any technician that has ever run across an axle frozen into a hub or similar will benefit from this tool," says Rob Kochie, SPX Service Solutions product manager of Equipment and Heavy-Duty Tools. "Applying heat or directly striking the axle and/or hub components typically results in damage and requires replacement. This tool will eliminate that damage along with saving time and money of replacement."
Adjustable sliding puller legs can be positioned anywhere on the puller center hub. This provides a true universal fit on wheel hubs with five- to eight-inch bolt circles. The unit’s pulling plate allows for quick attachment and an even pull on the popular five-bolt hubs with four- to five-inch bolt circle range. Combined, this puller has the capability of four- to eight-inch bolt circles.
