How much downtime does the equipment in your plant spend per week as maintenance technicians work to remove frozen, rusted, or stuck pulleys, bearings, and sprockets from shafts? From the shipyard to the paper mill to the mines, removing frozen objects from shafts can be one of the biggest—and most unnecessary—time wastes that maintenance teams face. Small-scale, hand tool-based removal methods such as torches and crowbars are at best risky and time-consuming, and often require the efforts of multiple maintenance workers to get the job done. An industrial puller, rugged-built for years of service in the plant and providing literally tons of force, solves this problem by allowing the same job to be done by just one person in much less time, saving you hours, labor, and ultimately cost.
