Easy, Safe and Secure

febi Wheel Puller

A common problem in LCV repair shops are rims stuck on the hub due to corrosion. Many mechanics try to loosen the wheel with a hammer and muscle power. This can not only last a very long time and be physically straining, but can also lead to damages to the rim or wheel bearings.

With the wheel puller, Ferdinand Bilstein has developed a solution in order to be able to remove stuck wheels simply, quickly and safely. The tool consists of two parts,

  • the wheel puller
  • and the wheel cart with which the LCV wheel can be conveniently transported

To do this, first the wheel nuts are loosened, the vehicle jacked up and the wheel cart pushed under the wheel for support. The wheel puller is then placed in front of the wheel and adjusted to the correct height so that the chains can be hooked into the wheel rim.

Now the spindle is rotated with the pressure plate against the hub until the wheel is released.

Due to the stable design, a very large force can be generated with the puller. Thus, even highly stuck wheels can be removed. The mounting of the loosened wheel is also possible with the wheel cart, because it can simply be positioned again in front of the hub and pushed onto the wheel bolts.

This is How the Wheel Puller Works

1. Adjust the wheel trolley

Pre-adjust the two wheel mounts by simply moving a pin.

You can then set the final width using the crank handle, which can also be attached to the inside in narrow wheel housings.



2. Loosen the wheel nuts

Loosen all wheel nuts from the wheel bolts.

Next, screw two opposite wheel nuts back onto the ends of the bolts in order to prevent the wheel from coming off when loosening.

3. Position the wheel puller

Position the wheel puller so that the support plate sits centrally on the wheel hub.

A hand grip allows you to adjust the height.

4. Attach the pulling chains

Insert the two pulling hooks in the rim.

Adjust the chain length and ensure equal tension on both sides.

5. Pull off the wheel

You can now easily remove the wheel from the hub using a torque wrench.

The tensile force here is around 4 tonnes.

6. Transport

Secure the wheel with a belt and move it out using the wheel transport trolley.
