Tools, Tools, Tools!! I know you guys love them, so that's why I show them! To day I was busting out the OTC 6980 Heavy Duty Brake Drum and Rotor Puller to save me from beating a rotor to death just to get it off so I thought I'd pick up the camera and bring you along. Although this one popped off easy, rest assured this tool has saved my bacon a time or two! -Enjoy!

    wonder why they don't just put those pullers along with the otc hub grappler. Astro pneumatic puts both puller accessories with there hub, drum and rotor puller kit. show me the money , scammers.

    Eric love your Videos I built my own Hub Grappeler a few years ago after watching your Video on it just watched your Video the Rotor/Drum puller by chance what is the length on those arms of that tool.I'm guessing about 9 inches.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 2009 G8 GT 6L says:

    Since they all can't Emmy award winning video Ya know loaded with exploded RUST and a couple of cans of the good stuff. In my mind all of the SMA Video's are very good. Full of original one liners and des nuts.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

    Thanks for the video.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    I found your Amazon store from the link on your channel page. No big nasty. Say it ain't so!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M R says:

    I remember a neighbor of mine trying to get a rusty rotor off a Jetta for about 45 minutes. I finally couldn't stand the sound of him pounding anymore. I brought my Proto drum / rotor puller over and had it off in a minute while he was in his house regrouping. Those tools work great.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shauns auto repairs says:

    Just trawling through some of these older vids…had some discs or rotors as you all them out east i smacked hell out of them…had to cut them off with a grinder in the end…what a job…wish id had that tool…

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Willhite says:

    record a rust exploding!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wyattoneable says:

    Only on YouTube can you be embarrassed when something goes right. 🙂

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sam k says:

    6980…I have spent hours trying to get a drum or rotor off….waiting on pen. Oil, heat, hammer, sheering off the push out bolt meant for the drum…just DIY, but sheesh…seems like with all my vehicles and the constant Omaha rust, it is getting more difficult to simple projects like this. I gotta say this tool had me at hello. Exactly what I was looking for and isn't otc MaC tools?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Dicks says:

    that's a cool tool keep the vids coming your teaching allot of techniques to the people who don't have the knowledge

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ozzstar's Cars says:

    From what i understand this tool is also amazing at removing wedgies faster than any side tug and pull technique known to mankind. Hey Eric, check your Ytube messages.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Miller says:

    Because you are who you are, Eric O. That's how things go.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Parker says:

    How much did the tool cost and where can someone buy one?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary's Garage says:

    Could of used this tool last week. Had to beat the crap out of one brake drum and had to use a large three jaw puller on the other side. Great video as always.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Foxx says:

    I beat the rotor hats with an air hammer, big nasty couldnt do it?

    It's a shame, my snap-on could

    ( dont do it with inner parking brake pads, theyll unrivit oops )

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tickyul says:

    Rotor came off so easy…….feeling hurt and ripped-off, REFUND!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars matthew1992ya says:

    they need to put those springs on the hub grappler little bit of a chore trying to juggle that thing around with one hand

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! joe Duca says:

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zachary Dewitt says:

    So Eric I'm a tech here in texas and we had a vehicle from new york come in today the amount of rust on that bad boy first thing I did is start watching some of your videos on how to deal with that crap now I can say I understand you and all the technicians in the North and the frustration y'all have with the rust thanks for the videos

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grumpy's Garage says:

    Have one, love it.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jdtractor man says:

    I knew that was a Saturn Ion as soon as I saw it on the lift, the badge on the fender gave it away. C'mon man you know you can cut them rotors and be good as new, LMAO! Needless to say those rotors probably ate the pads that were on there. Go figure that rotor would just about fall off like that when you are trying to demonstrate that tool, that puppy will definitely come in handy in the rust belt.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Iam D says:

    Imagining you beatin the tar out of the other rotor like Tarzan Unchained and then on the driver side hearing an imaginary wah, wah , wah, wahhh as the tool slides it off without a care. Nice one Eric! 😉

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kelly Giddens says:

    I made my own out of a large 3 jaw gear puller that had 1 broken arm, used a couple large nuts and washers to hold it in a piece of oak 4×4, notched the ends to receive the arms mounted with some heavy duty nuts and bolts and works like a charm.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arsinoe iv Lost Princess says:

    Here's one that gave me fits. I had the fuel pump changed at a shop where they installed a new pump in the old pump housing. In tank pump. I don't drive the car much but in six months the car died in degrees. Make a long story short I pulled the tank and found one screw that held the high pressure hose onto the pump was laying on the tank bottom and the other one was loose. I think one problem it being a 97 Taurus is the brittleness of the old pump housing plastic not holding the screws. Just a guess. Replaced with a new unit with sender. The new unit had done away with the screws and had a solid plastic retainer. You would need to take the unit apart to get the pump motor out. Not a job I would have tackled had I not watched a bunch of your fantastic videos. Thanks!!

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darwin Dwelle says:

    Nothing like having the right tools for the job!!!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 7c performance says:

    nice video. I'm a mechanic in South Georgia and thank goodness we don't have a lot of rust like that. I do work on some vehicles from up north occasionally and they are always a pain with all that rust. I couldn't imagine dealing with that all the time. keep up the good work.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shaun schollaert says:

    i want that tool never seen it before could easily make one thanks for sharing

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars It's Cowtown says:

    Eric I don't know where you find this amazing time saving tools but every time you post a video with an amazing tool my bank account gets smaller. But I love the tool videos and videos where you have to fight rust LOL.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Miller says:

    I picked up one of those pullers at a pawn shop 30 years ago, kept it for 20 years, never knew what it was for, finally gave it away to someone who also didnt know what it was used for, that was 10 years ago. Now I finally know what the tool I dont own is used for !

    I will have to call him and let him know.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curtis Smith says:

    easy peasy

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars catranger01 says:

    Fine threads do not exert any greater force over coarse threads. The force generated is purely a function of torque (in lbs) /( diameter (in) x fricition co-efficient (typically .15 to .2 depending on lube and finish). For example ( 250 ft lbs x 12in/ft) torque / (1" diameter x .2)= 15,000 lbs of force

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Medina says:

    Cool tool.
