Heavy Vehicle King Pin Press
One notoriously tricky task carried out by workshop staff is the removal of a seized king pin – a vital steering system component connected to the stub axle.
Traditional solutions to the problem are far from ideal. One method employs an acetylene torch to heat up the axle, expanding it slightly so that the king pin can be forced out with a heavy, blunt instrument such as a sledge hammer. REHOBOT’s 23 ton King Pin Press is a far simpler, hydraulic solution to the problem.
With a spread of 165 mm and reach of 457 mm, and the 23 ton capacity, it allows for the removal of most commercial vehicle king pins and stub axles on the market. The KPP23 comes complete with a set of 4 pusher pins in various diameters and lengths.
The King Pin Press can be operated by an air/hydraulic pump e.g. the PP70B-1000/LS201 or hand pump PHS70-1000/LS201.
