Even better, but more money, would be a hollow ram. Had one of those in my cart for a few years but just can't pull the trigger!

I have the pump and attachments but not the head to "pull" with. Can you tell us where you saw one and had in your cart?

Just type in "hollow ram" on Amazon or E-Bay. I was going to go with the 30 ton but I think 20 ton might be enough considering the metal punch like the one in the video is only 10 tons. If you had a 4" stroke and the foot control air pump imagine how fast you could do subframe bushings!

I have looked and can't find anything reasonably priced. You can get the whole kit with ram/pump at HF for less than $100. Not always in love with HF quality. I don't see any rams for less than $125. Any thoughts?

I think it would be well worth the extra money to have double tons and the hole go through, not to mention the longer stroke and probably would never need press.

According to amazon thats not the exact kit I bought from them but it sure looks like it.


Makes doing the bearings a breeze. I was having to remove the entire hub assembly before and use my shop press. After buy a kit just like that I do the job in nothing flat time wise. Love it.

I use this to push the axles out and for anything else that wants to get stubborn.

The only drawback with it is its HEAVY. I use a jack stand to support the thing when using it.

Astro Pneumatic Tool 78825 25-Piece Master Front Wheel Drive Bearing Puller Removal & Installer Adapter Kit W/Grade 8 Drive Bolt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JBK2OJO..._ADG6FbX6NM7V9

This is the one I recommend.

The HF and the rest on Amazon use a 3/4 bolt I estimate grade 5 hardness (I've chewed up 3-5 of them on x5 front bearings).

Rated 24,000# clamping force. It takes considerably more to remove front X5 bearing. My first one estimated 35,000

The 7/8 bolt in the kit above is rated 46,000# and will tackle the bearing no problem.

I upgraded mine to 1" bolt for the bigger plates but use a 3/4" rod for the smaller ones.

I was not able to find a threaded rod grade 8 and after smoking 3-4 of the grade 5, I went right to 1" grade 8; 61,000# at advised torque.

Lubricated torque on the 7/8" is 500 ft·lb, achievable with a pipe and breaker bar but enough to possibly break the bar: definitely use grease and also bronze thrust bushing

I bought a thin bronze thrust bushing; learn from my goof do not get 1/16" thick one. It squirted out from the bolt liked Play-Doh. Wish I had video of it : that was hilarious. Came out in little wedges like tiny pizza slices.
