Quick Change Hydraulic Puller Product Information from Mechanics Mate

The Quick Change Hydraulic Puller has been designed for speed, safety and adaptability. The Mechanics Mate Quick Change Hydraulic Puller offers the ability to take the power of your shop press to the job.

We currently have applications up to 50T, with 100T applications in development. We work with customers to ensure the system works.

Think of the Quick Change Hydraulic Puller as your hydraulic socket set, a socket set consists of a number of handles, extensions, adapters and sockets.

Our hydraulics are the equivalent of the handles, we have hydraulic cylinders from 5T – 100T, hand pumps, air operated hydraulic pumps, electric pumps and battery pumps. We have adapters and extensions too.

Our sockets are the different attachments, some are universal like our slotted attachments and our 3 Jaw attachments, others are job specific such as our Power Steering Pulley attachment. We also offer a range of installation shafts. These shafts are used for assembly, such as installing a harmonic balancer onto a crankshaft.

We offer a number of kits and options based on your specific needs. Starting with our Enthusiast Series using a basic hand pump and cylinder combination through to our top of the range Professional Series Hydraulics and Attachments.

If you would prefer to build your own kit, you can. Just choose the hydraulics you want, then pick the attachments you need. If you don’t know or we don’t have what you want, ask, because we are continually developing attachments for new applications and might have already developed a solution, if not, we are happy to look at your application.

Have a look on our YouTube channel to see what can be done, and how quickly it can be done. We can remove an LS1 harmonic balancer in 10 seconds once you have the bolt taken out. There is nothing else out there that can do this.

Once you use our Quick Change Hydraulic Puller, you will never use another puller again.
