WARREN, Mich. — OTC's new 30-Ton King Pin Pusher Set is designed to assist technicians when changing king pins and brake anchor pins on heavy-duty vehicles.
OTC, which is a Bosch brand, said that the set accommodates most models of trucks and buses. It is now available through OTC distribution partners in North America.
The 30-Ton King Pin Pusher Set removes both straight and tapered king pins faster than traditional methods, according to the company. 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 corroded king pins ranging from 7/8 inch to 2 inches in diameter and up to 11-1/4 inches in length. The included hand pump drives the cylinder.
The tool provides up to 30 tons of force for removing king pins and brake anchor pins. 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:
• OTC 4241: 30-ton king pin/brake anchor pin pusher frame and adapters.
• OTC 4121A-MA: hydraulic cylinder.
• OTC 4012A: two-speed hand pump.
• OTC 36886: hose assembly.
