LOCK-GRIP PULLERS MAKE LIGHT WORK OF MAINTENANCE

08-01-2019

Available now from Enerpac, the LG Series of lock-grip pullers enable simple, safe and cost-effective removal of shaft-mounted parts. The series includes both mechanical and hydraulic versions, all engineered to deliver precision results even in the harshest operating conditions.

LGM-Series mechanical lock-grip pullers are ideal for pulling small- to medium-sized wheels, sprockets, bearings and other similar shaft-mounted parts. The puller’s locking mechanism enhances safety by preventing the jaws from slipping during the pulling action. And a self-centring closing system allows all jaws to move simultaneously, making it easy for a single operator to mount the puller and to perform the application.

“The new Lock Grip pullers have been designed for a greater reach from the same diameter spread, allowing for the removal of thicker objects,” says Enerpac National Sales Manager Darryl Lange.

LGH-Series hydraulic lock-grip pullers provide the same safety and ease of use as their mechanical counterparts, with the pulling force applied by a standard 700bar hydraulic cylinder. These pullers can apply up to 60t of force and are designed for removing larger shaft-mounted objects up to 660mm in diameter.

Master puller sets are available that include an LGH-Series puller, cross puller, bearing separator, bearing cup puller, detachable hollow cylinder, hose and gauge and a pump. There are also set options available that include hand, air, electric and cordless pumps.

“Enerpac offers a complete line of pullers with the widest range of sizes, capacities and styles,” says Lange. “All are made of high-strength steel alloys that are dependable, providing years of trouble-free operation, even in the harshest environments.”
