Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has released 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 the 30-Ton King Pin Pusher Set removes both straight and tapered king pins faster than traditional methods. Included in the set are 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. The included hand pump drives the cylinder.
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, according to Bosch. Anchor pins can be removed using the hydraulic cylinder and an included adapter, with the tool positioned over the brake’s spider.
The 30-Ton King Pin Pusher Set is covered by a lifetime warranty and comes with the following:
