Truck brake repairs in record time
Experienced commercial mechanics will be very familiar with the situation: the brake cylinder and spring brake cylinder are often very difficult to access. Usually the entire wheel needs to be removed, a cumbersome task, especially when a technical defect requires a quick repair when travelling.
A new impact wrench from PE and Hazet offers the ideal solution: the tool makes access to both securing nuts considerably easier. This saves you time, nerves and, at the end of the day, money. In future, the wheel can stay put but repairs can still be completed in record time. A real “must-have in every tool box, it is similar to the dismantling tool for plug connectors, and the cooperation between PE and Hazet has again created a complete new kind of tool that offers considerable added value at little expense. The one-off investment will have paid for itself in terms of time saved after the first couple of uses.
The tool follows a suggestion from workshop professionals who often note that the installation and removal of brake cylinders is a time-consuming task. In conjunction with the tool specialists from Hazet, the PE developers have designed the impact wrench and adapted the shape of the tool to suit narrow spaces. Otherwise, using a torque wrench would be practically impossible with the wheel still mounted. The impact wrench enables access to the two fixing nuts on the majority of current commercial vehicle and trailer models, not just to remove them, but also to ensure subsequent-installation, with the correct torque. For this, the bolts can simply be tightened after work is complete using the appropriate torque wrench. The wheel can remain mounted throughout the entire brake cylinder repair process.
The impressive result: after the initial practical experience has been gained, repairs are considerably faster to implement. The tool (article number 076.699-00A) is 100 percent made in Germany. More details www.pe.de.
