    Looking for a portable hydraulic pin press for undercarriage work.
    What brand(s) are you guys familiar with?
    I used to have an OTC one but it appears they no longer sell one.
    Also anyone with a used one that they would like to sell let me know.
    Thanks.

    Pin Push Kit.

    Cat Wrench, the Press Gear that I use, I bought from Bignozzi New Technologies in Italy, they have been making the stuff since the mid 50's, its great kit plus it works well, this sort of kit is a bit of a Cost $$$ but having the stuff " Gets me Good Work ".

    Best of Luck tctractors.

    I have also bought a portable track press from Bignozzi located in Bondeno, Ferrara, Italy.
    I'm very satisfied of that.

    Just thought I would say, although I have a very extensive set of Rim and Pin Service kit, I usualy take my Big Hammer 28lb'er to sort track pins, as the set-up time to push a pin is often a drawn out process, the Hammer sorts things fast,I near always work alone so speed is King in getting things done, sometimes I am told I cannot use a Hammer, so I use the Press and make a good Meal out of it, if they ask for Fancy Toys, they Pay a Fancy $$$.

    Work smarter not harder. The extra two minutes it takes to set up the track press is worth it your body will thank you.
