Aftermarket 404 Hub Reduction Tools

Hi Guys,

Came across a German tool maker that is producing the Unimog 404/Oldtimer Hub Reduction tools. Having spent a considerable time with the factory tools, it is clear these are a good bit heavier duty than those. Craftsmanship is excellent. I have 3 sets inbound and will photo document them closer when they arrive in March, but figured I would post them up here for reference. We will probably substitute one of these sets in for the factory set in the tool rental program.

Cheers,

Scott

Scott,

Are these the same tools for the minimogs? (401-402's)

Yes, they are the same tools as used on the minimogs......

Probably the biggest difference on the hub puller is that the "screw" size is considerably larger than the stock tool which adds a lot of additional strength. I have had a number of damaged factory tools where there was too much torque applied and the threads got destroyed.

Cheers,

Scott

Last time I removed this item I was using a 10-20 ton tri jaw puller....a little hint....use a little heat on that hub....I said little ....works very well. Its very easy to bend the flange if your not careful.
