Caterpillar Pin Pusher
As can be seen in these pictures the pin has been pushed through; in this case it took 251 metric tonnes to break the grip of the pin which was very badly worn.
The pin is forced out the other side of the tool as the new pin is pushed through. The protective Blanket has been pulled back for the bennefit of the photograph.
Double acting cylinders DD35030, 350 ton and 300 mm stroke were used together with a YAM7645 110 volt 2.1 litre per minute power pack with remote control pendant for safety and ease of operation.
The tool is being used in Scotland for the removal of caterpillrs pins on Earth moving equipment.
Impressive weight reduction when compared with conventional equipment.
