This Posi Lock 208 manual puller has a 12-ton pulling capacity, has two jaws for working in compact spaces, and is suitable for extracting shaft-fitted parts, including bearings, wheels, bushings, gears, and pulleys. Its jaws are made of forged steel for increased strength over investment casting, and are tapered for better access in tight spaces. The center bolt has a 0.75" (19 mm) diameter. The diameter of the center bolt must be at least half the diameter of the shaft along which the object is pulled. This puller has an 8" (203 mm) reach and a spread range of 0.75 to 12 inches (19 to 305 mm) for increased pulling leverage. This manual puller is suitable for extracting shaft-fitted parts in a range of industries, including automotive, HVAC, wind power, and others.

Gear and bearing pullers are tools designed to remove mechanical, press-fit parts, such as bearings, bushings, gears, and pulleys, from a shaft, or to remove a shaft from inside a hole. Pullers have three main partsâ€”the center bolt, gripping jaws, and T-handleâ€”and can be operated manually or hydraulically. The jaws of the puller form a claw that grips the edge of the gear, which is pulled off the shaft when the screw is turned. Pullers are typically configured with two or three jaws and can be constructed of iron, steel, or other alloyed metal. Pullers can be used manually or can be powered by a hydraulic cylinder, adding speed and precision, and reducing the physical labor required for pulls. With a hydraulic puller, compressed air is forced through the cylinder by a pump that is either connected by hose to the puller or is integral to it. Pullers are used in hundreds of applications in the automotive, agricultural, and manufacturing industries, among others.
Posi Lock manufactures pulling jaws, vises, and specialty tools. The company, founded in 1978, is headquartered in Cooperstown, ND.
