OTC Tools 9 Way Slide Hammer Puller Set 4579

I got my OTC slide hammer in the mail a couple nights ago. This is a very very nice kit. I am amazed at its quality and how much you get for the price. I picked this up for 80 dollars, shipped, via Amazon Prime. It has a 5/8 - 18 tpi (threads per inch) thread, which is the most common size. This set currently has a 4.8 out of 5 star rating in 82 votes.

The kit includes:

- 2-Way Cross Block
- Front Hub Puller
- Internal 3-Jaw Puller
- External 3-Jaw Puller
- Rear Axle Puller
- Internal 2-Jaw Puller
- External 2-Jaw Puller
- Grip Wrench Adapter
- Dent Puller
- Puller Hook


The kit


Here's an explanation as to how to use each tool


The hammer on the scale, showing it is indeed 5 pounds


The jaw pullers. Can be used as a 2 or 3 jaw puller.


One of my hangups with the HF kit was its inability to be useful for small bearing requiring an inner pull. This kit handles it.


The above is achieved because there are 3 inches of threads on this puppy.


The dent puller. This is pretty heavy duty. I like that I can just replace the bolt if needed, rather than the entire attachment.


The front hub and axle pullers. These will be handy.


And one of my main reasons for buying this is the ability to connect to my axle bearing pullers.
