What You Need to Know About Hydraulic Pullers
Hydraulic pullers are an essential tool in many industries and can be used for a variety of tasks, from removing bearings and gears to disassembling large components. But not all hydraulic pullers are created equal. In this article, we’ll explore the different types of hydraulic pullers that are available so you can find the one that best fits your needs.
Types of Hydraulic Pullers
The most common type of hydraulic puller is the two- or three-leg model. These models feature two or three legs that support a central bar with two or four hooks. The number of hooks will depend on the size and weight of the item being pulled, but they are typically strong enough to hold up to 100 tons. This type of puller is great for use on small parts such as bearings and gears, as well as larger components like engines and heavy machinery.
Another type of puller is the ratcheting jaw model. This type features four jaws that close around an object as it is being pulled, allowing for greater control over how much force is applied to the object during removal. They’re often used for heavier items such as engines and other large components where precision is key.
Finally, there’s the lever arm puller. This model has a single lever arm with a hook at one end; when activated, it applies pressure against an object to help loosen it from its mountings before pulling it away from its location. Lever arm pullers are ideal for situations where speed and efficiency are needed but access is restricted due to tight spaces or awkward angles.
No matter what your pulling needs may be, there’s sure to be a hydraulic puller that will do the job right! Knowing which type you need can help ensure you get maximum results in minimum time while also ensuring safety when operating these powerful machines. With the right information in hand, you’ll be able to confidently choose just the right hydraulic puller for your project!
When choosing hydraulic pullers, there are different features you need to consider.
Hydraulic Or Mechanical?
With a hydraulic puller, the spring loader plunger provides a non twisting application of thrust, making it more effective and secure. With a mechanical puller, you rotate a crossbar, which moves the centre bolt towards the shaft. They are more suitable for extracting bearings and rings that fit flush with other parts.
