The only fear is a rusted stuck rotor or drum. This fear came true.
After following advice to at first tap the front rotor off on our 2003 hyundai elantra, I moved up to progressively heavier hammers. I finally gave up with the 3 lb sledge. I tried several times. I even tried the bolt trick on youtube - didn't work, started bending the brake bracket.
On top of not getting the rotor off, I bent it and threw the car out of alignment. Rather than take it to a shop, I decided to gamble on this puller based on the reviews. If it worked, it would pay for itself in one use... not to mention I'd never fear a stuck rotor/drum again.
It arrived within a few days. It IS very heavy duty, much thicker steel than the rotor itself. So I adjusted it to fit the rotor (instant and easy to adjust), I think the rotor is 10". The main bolt has a pin which lines up with the axle, so I knew it was centered. It takes a 1" wrench to crank the main bolt. Within a few turns, the rotor broke free. Always put 2 lugs on to prevent the rotor from flying off. I used the strap to hold it to the rotor, but it would of done fine without the strap. It was virtually effortless. Oh, I oiled the main bolt too because I've been using this so much.
It does both rotors AND drums. It's able to "grapple" into the gap between the drum. So yes, it does both.
A few days later, I heard a neighbor pounding on his rotor (it makes a very distinct sound, you all know what I mean).Read more ›
It's a serious, heavy duty tool, seems well thought out and good construction. Good, basic instructions including (as another reviewer points out) a note to use the lug nuts to prevent the brake drum from popping all the way off the studs when it let's loose.
It also comes with a strap to secure the whole thing to the drum. I didn't care for the strap. Instead, I rotated the tool 90 degrees on the drum so the bar points up and down instead of side to side. That worked fine in my case.
I doubt I would try to remove the drums again without this tool. It just makes all the difference.
One note about drum brakes: If you have two threaded holes in the face of the drum, look on youtube for a video showing how to remove the drums with two large bolts and save yourself $100. My Ranger didn't have the holes so I couldn't get them off that way.
First we had to drill out the 2 screws holding the drum down and then his drums wound up being seized to the hub so bad I could not break them free even with my baby sledge hammer. I have never had this problem before. Short of cutting them off I decided to give this a try.
What an awesome tool! It works great and is solidly constructed as well. I use it on my cousins breaks and drum still doesn't budge so I tighten it even more putting more pressure on the drum - nothing. Ok stand clear I say and I stand to the side and give it a solid whack with my 53 baby sledge.... BOING! and it comes flying off. No damage to the tool at all. Almost the exact same scenario on the other side. An hour later he is on happy camper.
A few weeks later my son comes down, unannounced, with his ford for a brake job. His drums are so worn and the adjuster so frozen I can't retract the pads far enough in to clear them from the groove they've worn in the drum. Out comes this tool and it cranks them off there in a minute, breaking the internal hardware retainers in the process - that's how tuff this tool is!
By far this is the most useful tool I've bought in a while.
Great time saver, love it.
