New tool

My friend, the one I am doing the rear disc conversion for, bought me this for the 16 9/16-18 studs that have to come out then go back in.

Yes, it's a Horrible Freight unit, but the price was right!

That will make short work of them.  That's exactly how I did it.

Oh, wait...



It's the same one I just bought.




But I never press lug studs out or in - I just use a BPH, and a Lisle lug stud installer.

Steve, that's fine, but these are 9/16-18 8 per side. I did pull the first 8 in with a couple of Ace hardware hex nuts and some washers, that and my DeWalt 18V impact made short work of them.

This isn't precisely "new", and it's not precisely a "tool", but I've just gotten it back into usable condition:

It looks great!  What axles are under it?  What tires?  In other words, what do you think the GCWR is?

Thanks.  No idea on the axles - at least one originally had surge brakes.  The tires are new 10-ply 2830# so ~11Kip gross tire rating.  I'll gauge the capacity by how far it squats, but I'm not planning on hauling a full-load of dirt or a tracked skidsteer.
