Almost double the aftermarket for genuine heads. The 9" heads or whatever they are insanely costly.

Nice score, big Time saver not having to insert knives and balance them. Advanatge did this and my buddy never got on board with it. Difference was Advantage never had downtime between profiles and a monkey could change the heads.

I needed a longer reach puller than my 20" one. I think these will do.

I think he more than likely had this one blueprinted before he sold off Stiletto.

What are you pulling that you need more than a 20" gear puller for? Mine's probably 8" and is plenty for anything I've needed it for.

Is it for a dust collector or something? Anything else it's hard to imagine over a 20" reach. I guess you deal with a lot of direct drive stuff that is outrageously large. Haha

I needed 22" of reach to pull that rotor so I could get to the out board bearing to change it. Arbor on a SRL is 24" long, gang rips even longer.

yeah pretty great saw got to use it a bit and the adjustments are easy for bevels, The line on the base plate is helpful for lining up. The weight is not bad at all with 6 ah battery. well ballanced saw. good line of sight. no regrets.

*shrugs* An upright hydro press, with bearing separators, would have worked too as another option. Would have spread the pressure points out even. Handy owning a hydro press, but not everyone has one. Kinda required in an auto shop though.

Edit: To be clear the pullers got the job done just fine!


Today I bought some quick clamps from the Dollar Store. BIG purchase I know don't be too impressed.

Probably one of the reasons changing the bearings on a gang rip are stupid expensive.

Sidenote - ever hear a bearing on the arbor go bad on a gang rip? Sounds like a friggin explosion. Heard it on a Mereen Johnson and I thought we were coming under enemy fire.

I could not fixture that in either one of my presses. It wouldn't fit in my greenard #4 or my hydraulic h frame press. If you actually look at it, you would have saw that right after the rotor was the break disc, then the huge end plate with the bearing housing. All that was too tight to each other to fit in a press.

It all had to come off this way because the plate on the outboard end was freeze fit from the factory, and not coming off.

Doesn’t say how long the battery lasts or if it works just plugged in after the battery is junk. But for $30 I might take a chance.

Never thought of that. I use to pay about 40 cents for them now they're above 70 cents. Unless I"m using 2K poly I have to throw them away unless I want to vigorously clean them and I'd probably use more in thinner than to just buy new ones. You think the dollar store cups will handle lacquer?
