Two-leg Pullers

Two-let pullers, also known as bearing pullers, are ideal for extracting bearings, bushings, and cylindrical components from housings or shafts. Their split design with two opposing legs allows them to grip the inner race securely, making them suitable for tight spaces and deep-set components. They are compact, lightweight, and easy to maneuver.

Three-Leg Pullers

Three-leg pullers, or gear pullers, are better suited for removing gears, pulleys, and components with internal grooves or notches. The three-leg design provides a balanced grip and evenly distributes the pulling force, making them useful for larger or more stubborn components that require significant force. They offer a wide range of jaw adjustments to accommodate various component sizes and geometries.

Hydraulic Pullers

Hydraulic pullers use hydraulic pressure to generate immense pulling force, making them ideal for extracting heavily seized or corroded components. They are particularly useful in industrial and heavy machinery applications where manual pullers may not provide sufficient force. Hydraulic pullers offer precise control and can be used in confined spaces.

Expansion Pullers

Expansion pullers, also known as internal pullers, are designed to grip the internal bore of a component, such as a bearing or bushing. They work by expanding a collet or set of jaws inside the bore, allowing for a secure grip and efficient extraction. Expansion pullers are useful when external access is limited or when components are deeply recessed.

Hydraulic Presses

Hydraulic presses are versatile tools that can be used for various pressing and extraction tasks, including bearing removal and installation. They use hydraulic pressure to generate controlled and precise force, making them suitable for delicate or high-precision applications. Hydraulic presses offer adjustable force and stroke length, ensuring safe and efficient component extraction or installation.
